My life changed forever the day I celebrated my 40th birthday in 1996.

That was the day I saw Mikoroshoni school for the first time.

Like the founder trustees who had visited the month before I was desperate to help.

We returned to Scotland and in our small way we started to fund raise and highlight the project at every opportunity.  Kenya and its people stole my heart and we returned time and time again.

My husband John and I were invited to become trustees.

I continue to visit the school at least twice a year and I am extremely fortunate to get the opportunity to take unpaid leave from work enabling me to spend several weeks there. These days are some of the happiest I have spent and I hope to spend many more special days with the children and teachers when I retire.
