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

We are pleased to welcome Shruthi Sivadasan to the Board of Trustees.  

Professionally, Shruthi is a subsea engineer with Wood in Aberdeen.  She will be the lead Trustee for Volunteer Management and bring a wealth of experience to the role having worked as a voluntary teacher in a low-income school in Tanzania and through her chairmanship of  SUT+ Aberdeen.
