The project director for UK based Kenyan charity St Peter’s Life Line has been enjoying her first visit out of Kenya by exploring some iconic locations in the UK.
During her trip, Veronica Nyaga has visited Windsor Castle, experienced the seaside charm of Brighton, looked around the House of Commons and explored Shakespeare’s Globe.
On Wednesday, she was the guest at Puriton Primary School’s Parents’ Assembley where she talked about the work of the charity and provided more background to Our Lady of Consolation (OLC), whom the Somerset school are twinned with in Kenya.
Through their link to OLC, the Puriton pupils gain a wider understanding of and respect for the life experiences of children living in very different contexts to their own.
Children’s work is regularly exchanged between the children of both schools, through the regular trips to Kenya by the charity’s Chair of Trustees, David Baldwin. The connection also provides greater opportunities for purposeful literacy, art and the children’s Enterprise fundraising.
