A momentous year for The Walk Centre. The Walk Centre received 69 volunteers to help with the construction work of the new primary school and teaching at the pre-primary school. After 18 months of fundraising, The Walk Centre primary school was officially opened at the beginning of August. On the same weekend, The Big Bike Ride took place with five cyclists embarking on a 1,200km journey from Nakuru in Kenya to Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania with the aim of raising the remaining funds needed to complete the build.
By the end of 2017, The Walk Centre was supporting 439 students; 230 at The Walk Centre, 130 at Prison’s Primary (local government school), 75 at high schools and 4 at college.
