In 2020, Bishop Robert launched an appeal to build a classroom for the Bishop Hannington School in Mumias, Kenya. As a result, the classroom was successfully built and because the school is growing, there is now a need to install a purpose-built toilet block.
In response to a personal request from Bishop Joseph Wandera, Bishop Robert’s Advent Appeal this year is for a toilet block for this same school and will be a very tangible expression of support for the Diocese of Mumias’s mission to educate primary school children and to provide them with proper hygiene provision.
“In 2020, I launched an appeal to build a classroom for Bishop Hannington School in Mumias, Kenya. I am delighted to say that the classroom was successfully built. Indeed great progress has been made with the construction of other classrooms too. My appeal this year is for a toilet block for this same school.”
Bishop Robert explains, “We have already helped Dr Wangera to build a classroom for the school. This Appeal gives us the opportunity to provide an ‘ablutions block’ for the girls and boys, to give them toilets and the possibility of better hygiene while they are at school. ‘Days for Girls’ (which featured prominently at the Lambeth Conference) has brought home to us all the importance of proper hygiene provision if girls are to manage at school. Better hygiene means a better education. Better education will change their world”
