Hood Avenue Primary School Supports Rehema Academy & Orphanage

Hood Avenue Primary School in Fayetteville launched a school supply drive to help support Rehema Academy & Orphanage during Random Acts of Kindness Month.

Rehema Academy & Orphanage is located in Bungoma, Kenya. It is home to 139 students who either have no parents or one parent is destitute. Rehema Academy & Orphanage provides its students with food, shelter, and education to help nurture their bodies and minds.

The students and staff at Hood Avenue donated over 1,000 items. Donated items included pencils, crayons, markers, books, glue, erasers, paper, and more.

Faculty member, Debbie Hogan, spearheads and coordinates this initiative. “This is the second year we have supported this program. It gives our students an opportunity to view education on a global perspective as well as teaches them the importance of helping others,” says Debbie Hogan, Technology Teacher.
