West End Destiny Academy, Kenya

A Meaningful Partnership

How it works, and a little about your partner school

We’re so excited to have you on board as a UK school partner, and we hope you’re excited too!

This page is your one-stop shop for everything related to your school partnership. Here you can download resources such as letters from your partner school, half-termly updates, and work produced by the students in Kenya. You can also learn about your partner school’s aims for the future, and how you can fundraise as a school to help them reach their goals.

At the bottom of the page, you’ll find the contact details for your School Partnership Co-ordinator, as well as some information about your partner school’s Founder – please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!

West End Destiny Academy was set up in 2010 by Valentine Adisa to provide a free education to the local children. The school educates approximately 70 children between the ages of two and 10. West End Destiny also opens its doors throughout the holidays for students who would like to attend, or who need daycare.

In Nakuru, the costs that come with attending a government-run school – such as buying uniforms, textbooks, and exercise books – mean that this is not an option for many children. Community projects such as West End Destiny Academy give children the chance of a better future by removing the financial barrier to education.

Currently, West End Destiny teaches students from nursery up to Standard Three class.

Fundraising

Fundraise for West End Destiny Academy

Any amount you fundraise will help West End Destiny Academy reach their goals sooner.

Because African Adventures Ltd. covers any costs associated with running our charity, African Adventures Foundation, 100% of the money you raise will go directly to your partner school.

Below, you’ll find three simple fundraising ideas, but feel free to get creative and think of your own!

Run a 'Kenya Day'

Organise a day to celebrate all things Kenyan at your school, with food, drinks, music, dancing, arts and crafts…the possibilities are endless. Head to the Resources section to download a ‘How to Hold a Kenya Day’ pack, and start planning!

Hold a non-school uniform day

Ask students to donate £1 or £2 in return for wearing their own clothes for the day, and you’ll quickly raise a large amount of money! You could even theme your non-school uniform day by asking everyone to wear the colours of the Kenyan flag.

Cycle the distance to Kenya

Recruit a team of students and teachers to cycle the distance from your school to Kenya! Divide the distance up and complete your individual cycles over a period of weeks or months. Collect sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues, and watch the pounds add up!
