I'm a founding Trustee of Keep Kids in School - a small UK charity set up to support the work of a dynamic local self help schooling NGO - APEED Parakou, Benin, West Africa.
Every year with our partners we raise funds to keep 100+ very poor, usually orphaned, kids in Benin in state secondary schools - something they have to pay for & just cannot afford without our subsidy.
To see more about our APEED schooling project in BENIN Please check out our WEBSITE

Walk Across Morecambe Bay

Five Yorkshire Grannies are planning to walk 7 miles across Morecambe Bay to help raise funds to KEEP KIDS IN SCHOOL in Parakou, Benin.

Come on Grannies !!!!!

All donations, big or small, really appreciated - as each £80 keeps another poor kid in secondary school for another year.

THANK YOU so much !
