A school in Kenia
One Day Yes’ organises the auction for raising fund for the school Twashukuru Nursery School in Lamu (Kenia). A 100% eco-friendly school that maintains 50 children with food and education, and that it is builded with bottles.
Each year, they have achieved their goals, as the construction of classroom building, the acquisition of a boat as school transport and the launch of the nutrition programme.
This year, the challenge is guaranteed the maintenance of the soup kitchen that is opened for ensuring the nutrition to more children, former students of the ‘eco-school’, who come to the school only for eating.
