We are a UK registered Charity delivering educational projects to communities in Kenya.
Education is something that we take for granted in the UK. Unfortunately, in Kenya many children do not have the same opportunity to receive free and compulsory basic education. Article 53 of the Kenyan constitution gives children the right to free and compulsory basic education – so they have a constitutional right but in reality, they simply do not have the opportunity.
Please see below Statement issued by the Board of Trustees on 14th May 2021:
“Following the discovery that another primary school will shortly be opening opposite our proposed school the Trustees of The Bouncing Ball Trust have taken the difficult decision that, due to the size of the community that both schools would both be serving, our “A School for Kangawa” project is no longer viable.
We are now actively investigating with our representative in Kenya several possible locations in the country. The Bouncing Ball Trust is committed to working with a local community in an equal partnership to deliver on their Early Years Education provisions. We will continue to fundraise to be ready to build the school once the community has been identified.”
Details of our previous projects can be found here.

The Bouncing Ball Trust is a low-cost charity being run by our Trustees. This enables us to use your money on our projects, which benefits the children and communities who really need it.
