Sponsored walk on 15th March

Mar 7, 2024 | News

On Thursday 14th March, our whole school family is doing a 11km sponsored walk to raise funds for the renovation of CASLAS children’s home in Lagos.
CASLAS is a home for children who have suffered different kinds of trauma in their young lives and are taken from unhealthy, sometimes dangerous family situations. They are given a safe place to live, attend school, taught life skills, provided meals, and counselling. Currently there are 27 young people living there, aged 12-21. State funding provides for only their basic needs, leaving no money for building upgrades. In order to improve the kids’ living conditions, an extensive project is being planned to renovate 3 common areas in the home: the Study Room, Dining Room and Kitchen. All 3 rooms need to be painted and electrics updated. The laminate floor that has buckled in the Study Room needs to be replaced with tiles. The kitchen needs to be totally renovated into a functional domestic kitchen, complete with appliances, countertops and cabinets where the kids can be taught cooking skills. The team of contractors chosen for this project (scheduled to begin on 2/7/24) are providing greatly reduced pricing on materials as well as labour. The total cost of the planned renovations will be €15,000.
Everyone is welcome to join us on our walk. For more information please contact
