In 2022 we began construction of our new sanitation block which is now nearing completion. This was funded by generous donations from Caterham school also 10 pupils from Hazelwood school who raised £2,635 from a swimathon last year. There is now clean piped water to the Eusabia Hope Centre, with tanks for rainwater collection. With thanks to many including Caterham School and Oxted Rotary who have both kindly donated, and a team of 10 pupils from Hazelwood School raised £2,635 during a swimathon in April 2022!

2021 Dormitory block – The children now have their very own bed, mattresses and linen after the conversion of the old classroom building. As a result the children’s sleep has improved significantly with positive effects on their concentration in class, health and well being.
2021 Water Project – thank you Caterham School! With the running water, we are growing vegetables to supplement
what we source from the local market and are also able to plant fruit trees around the Centre. All contributing to the improvement in the health of the children.
2020 – dining area and classroom, kitchen and laundry complex, pictures below
We built a 2-room dormitory in 2019, with a separate room for boys and for girls. Not only is this good for the children’s well-being, it is also required by Kenyan law. Without this, the Centre will not be able to continue functioning in the long run.
As part of the building project, we will also build a new kitchen as the current one is inadequate and a wall to go around the Centre in order to improve safety.
