RUSH Academy sustainability

One of the key challenges that so many charities in Africa face is that of sustainability. RUSH like many others currently depend on help from the UK. So, one of the things that we have been trying to do is to encourage them to work on sources of income in Kenya. 

Getting down to business – RUSH style

We’ve been in Kakamega now for 10 days and only got one day left here before we head back to Nairobi via Lake Nakuru. It’s been a great reminder out here, as usual, that makes you realise how much we take for granted.
