The event will also feature GMA’s current education campaign to develop a Primary School library project in Kibera slums of Kenya, one of the largest urban slums in the world. The slum library project was first launched in January 2016 after a request from Kenya was made to GMA to help support a slum school children. The slum school is currently supported by local women group and has no books and classroom material available. Previously GMA has donated Gifts boxes to the slum children.

GMA launched online fundraiser page and raised more than £1000 It seeks more funds up to £4,000 to develop a library with cupboards, tables, chairs, computer and other necessary material for school library.

The charity has also liaised Glasgow’s Netherlee Primary School which welcomed GMA’s members to present the project to primary school Children. GMA extends its heartfelt thanks to the staff, parents and the children who made it possible to raise books for children. GMA was donated close to 500 books by the school children. GMA has also established a Scottish Charity Books Abroad which deliver books around the world. Books Abroad will donate 5000 books to Slum School in Kenya on behalf of GMA. Thank you Books Abroad

The charity gig will feature Glasgow Singers Kirsten Easdale, Lord of the Mountain, Will Johnstone, Daryl Sperry, Mick Hargan, Baby Taylor and Bigg Taj. The gig has been supported by Glasgow’s Bloc + and Stereo which will also host the gig.

GMA would like to thank all its partners and especially BLOC+ and Stereo as well as the singers who all made the gig possible and for their kind, selfless gesture for the good causes.

Global Minorities Alliance believes education is the key to fight injustices, inequalities and societal prejudices in the world.  This year we launched our education campaign to help the slum children, in one of the largest urban slums in the world – Kibera slums in Nairobi, Kenya.

As previously informed to our readers through our posts, we would like to help this local primary school, Star of the Land Education Centre, which is run by a community women’s group. The school is deprived of  most basic needs a school might have and struggles to obtain teaching materials. We would like to support the school in developing a library with primary school books, tables, chairs, a computer and a printer.

Global Minorities Alliance would like to thank all those who have been supporting this project. With your donations we have raised £1,034 to date and we continue to ask for more help to reach our target of £5000. Our campaign will end this August.

Our delegates Shahid Khan and Rebecca Gebauer recently met with representatives of an excellent charity in Scotland which donates books in the most deprived areas in the world with books, Books Abroad which will help us ship whopping 2500 books in August/September this year for our school in Kibera slums.  We are thrilled for this happy news and thank Books Abroad  for their excellent work and for our future collaboration with them.

 

If you would like to raise funds to support us in this campaign then please do contact us or drop an email at info@globalminorities.co.uk  or if you would like to donate then simply  click on our fundraising page. We are deeply thankful for your support.
