World Bicycle Relief

The Kenyan Child Foundation is delighted to announce our partnership with the World Bicycle Relief.

A consignment of Buffalo Bicycles have been delivered to Kawese to be distributed to the students of St Patrick’s as part of the Bicycle Education Empowerment Programme (BEEP)


The girls and boys of Kawese who have had to overcome the barrier of distance to school in the past are so positive about the new bicycle programme.

World Bicycle Relief and the entire community of Kawese are aware that Education and attendance at school is the children’s hope for the future.


Attendance and academic performance are being monitored at St Patrick’s. We hope to see an improvement in the attainment level of pupils who are part of the BEEP programme.

The Kenyan Child Foundation looks forward to the exciting impact this partnership will make into the future.

Phase II of St Patrick’s Primary School Kawese officially opened on Sunday April 9th 2017.

3 new classrooms were unveiled by Madame Mourhi from the State Department of Education for the pupils of Standards 5,6 and 7.

The Kawese community are proud of the new classrooms at St Patrick’s and the ongoing scores and academic achievements of the students.

They welcomed the announcement that two scholarships for secondary school will be provided for girls by Madame Flora at Kenya High in Nairobi and a further two for boys at the Holy Ghost Secondary school in Sultan Hamud.

The opening of Phase II was accompanied by performance of local song and dance by the Maasai people and the children of Kawese.

The link between St Patrick’s B.N.S. Hollypark Foxrock and St Patrick’s Kawese was further strengthened when the students and teachers received the many gifts and teaching resources sent to Kenya by the boys and parents of Hollypark.

The students and their teachers send their gratitude to everyone who has helped them. They acknowledged and celebrate that in a few short years their school has come so far. “You have managed to change our lives as well as our community. Asante Sana”
