Leave a gift in your Will
Leaving a gift in your will could make all the difference to pupils at Unity School in Mombasa, Kenya.
You can make a huge impact on the lives of children at Unity School for years to come. By leaving a legacy, you will give these children we support the dedicated care they need, and a life that they could never have thought possible.
Your gift will make sure that the school continues to excel in teaching practices alongside medical care and a feeding project.
Why leave a gift?
Many of the children we support come from very poor families and some with no families at all. No matter what life throws at them, they are strong. However, we as a charity are here to help and support them. With your help we can do more with a good education within a stable learning environment will keep their hopes alive and help them find a way to a brighter future.
We do not sponsor individual children, because all pupils come from very poor backgrounds and we believe that all pupils should benefit from a legacy.
No matter how big or small, your money gives Unity School and its pupils hope and the chance to flourish, now and long into the future.
