Fifteen years ago Immanuel Kindergarten In Yei South Sudan moved to a new building funded by Immanuel Kindergarten Charity with 75 children.  There are now 375 squashed into the three classrooms and more children on a long waiting list. As our fifteenth anniversary challenge a small group of us (led by a terrified Carolyn!) will abseil from Denham Carr near Chorley to raise funds to build additional classrooms to give as many children as possible the opportunity for a quality education from an amazing staff team in Yei led by Malish Simon.

Thank you to all those who have so generously supported this challenge so far we have raised an incredible  £6,321.30 !

Its not to late to give and anything you can afford to give will go directly to the project, (nothing is taken for administration or other purposes).

You can donate either by contacting

Carolyn -   click for contact

for the bank account details or a paper sponsorship form

or via Golden Giving

THANK YOU so much for your ongoing interest and support

Immanuel Kindergarten

Immanuel Kindergarten was founded in the 1980s to serve the young children of Yei in South Sudan. A long civil war intervened and the children and familes became refugees in Uganda. When they eventually returned to Yei nearly 20 years later with very few belongings a priority was to re open the Kindergarten. The roof was falling in and inside was dark and dreary. The Immanuel Kindergarten charity was founded to work in partnership with the families of Yei to build a new school .

In November Carolyn and Claire attended a special joint celebration of ten years education in the new building and the graduation of 140 children who will start primary school in January . After a parade around the area the celebration continued with speeches interspersed with dances, poems and songs from the children and lots of food and cake!! . A great day. Well done Malish and your amazing team!
