Retford Lions Club has been the driving force in providing financial support for local charity, CHinK (Children in Kenya), to complete the building of a school for severely underprivileged children 20 miles north of Mombasa. The club proposed support of the project by North Sea Lions Alliance, consisting of clubs in UK, Holland, Germany and Denmark. Through this group £50K was made available to add two floors, consisting of six classrooms. The project was managed on the ground through the good auspices of Mombasa Mvita Lions Club.
The build is now complete and 180 children are receiving an education that they would never have had without the support of CHink and Retford Lions Club.
