How Much to build a classroom?
Each high quality classroom cost us £12,000 to build, so that’s £6000 from donations plus £6000 from the doubling. We will display the running total raised each day, updated at 09:30, here.
The Bowden Trust has kindly offered to match any donations up to £6000 for the classroom received by the charity. Donations can be by cheque or card.
The money raised, plus the doubling, will be used to build the 10th classroom. The money received this year will be combined with the money received next year to build the final 2 classrooms in early 2018.
The school provides an education to the poorest in the Maasai community. Each year, the school grows by 1 class of 25-28 children, so each year the school must employ 1 more teacher and build 1 classroom.
During the Challenge, we ask our supporters to donate by cheque or card with the aim of raising £6,000 and releasing matched funding to reach our target of £12,000.
What happens if the 12,000 is exceeded?
We will put any excess towards classroom number 11. We need a total of 11 classrooms before the school is finished.
