Guernsey: Ogier Supports Kenya Trip By Guernsey Students
Last Updated: 30 June 2017

Ogier has supported a project in mid-west Kenya where 17 students from Elizabeth College in Guernsey travelled to learn about life in east Africa and to build a large hen house at a local primary school.

The trip was in aid of the Turi Children's Project (TCP), supporting Sulgwita Primary School, and gave the boys the chance to teach some lessons at the school and visit children's homes.

Ogier's role in the project was to match money raised by the boys to fund and build a hen house which TCP is using to create a sustainable income to support their work.

The project also supports a breakfast scheme for 650 children at the nearby Sulgwita Primary School, and three local children with disabilities – Lucy, who is blind and goes to a special school in Nairobi, and Sarah and John, who are deaf and go to school in Nakuru, closer to Turi.

The trip was the fifth to Turi by pupils from the school – the sixth, due to take place next year, is currently being planned.

Karyn Norman from Elizabeth College - which supports TCP on an annual basis - said: "For the College boys, this has been a life changing experience. The concept of charity has become a reality and has led to personal growth and development in contributing towards the lives of others, something to be treasured. We would sincerely like to thank Ogier for their most generous support in this."

Mary Bate from Ogier's Guernsey office said: "We were very pleased to support this project, which fitted perfectly with our CSR theme of supporting charities linked to education. The firm adopted a new CSR strategy at the start of the year offering staff days off to volunteer and individual funds for charitable projects - because of the link between the school here and the school in Kenya, this was a great opportunity for us to back a local endeavour."
