"We saw firsthand the work of Grand Circle Foundation, and we appreciate all that they do for the local community. The Foundation should be proud of the work it does."

Amboseli Primary School

When we first began our partnership with the Amboseli Primary School, the school's most pressing priority was a new hand pump for the village well. Upon investigation, we decided to build the village a brand new well—which required workers to dig an astounding 140 feet before striking water. Our support has also helped fund solar lighting, water filters, teacher supplies, and books. There is still a great deal to be done—including the purchase of uniforms and additional textbooks and supplies for the school.

Lemong'o Primary School

The newly formed partnership with the Lemong'o Primary began in 2014 and hopes to bring much needed support to this small school. With just 63 children enrolled, ages 6-10, Lemong'o currently receives very little government funding and is in need of textbooks, exercise books, and writing utensils for their students. Grand Circle Foundation hopes that this partnership will provide for the school's needs for years to come.

Due to the young age of the students, small gifts such as toys, crayons, pencils, and chalk are welcomed.
