The Lewa Education Programme: building a girls' dormitory

Mishcon de Reya has pledged to raise £42,000 in 12 months to build a new girls' dormitory for the Ngare Ndare Secondary School, part of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Kenya.  Since 2010, Mishcon de Reya have been supporting two schools as part of the Lewa Education Programme. This is the firm's biggest fundraising challenge to date.

The new dormitory will allow the students to study without the fear of making the long journey to and from home, which puts them in danger of rape and coercion and, without the structure and protection of school, probable early marriage.
