Jude Bellingham outlines ‘deprived’ situation as education reform targeted

Former Birmingham City midfielder Jude Bellingham is attempting to raise money to fund a number of laptops for a school in Kenya, so 300 children at Miche Bora School can follow the current curriculum.

The school is run by a charity known as the Mustard Seed Project which aims to provide education, health care and a feeding program to deprived children in the Mombasa area.

Speaking on the matter on the Just Giving page for the issue, Bellingham said: “I’m an 18 year old footballer playing for Borussia Dortmund and England and although football is my main passion I also want to use my talent to help others.

“I am currently very keen to support the 300 children at Miche Bora School in a deprived area of ​​Mombasa. The school is run by UK charity Mustard Seed Project and the children are very poor.

“Many of the children only get the food that is provided by the school each day and would otherwise go hungry. Amazingly, your generous donations have made it possible for the Mustard Seed Project to feed all the children for the rest of this year.

“Now I would really like to raise money to buy some laptops. The children need IT skills to follow the Kenyan curriculum and then for their life in the future. At present there are just six laptops in the school and these are used by the teachers but now they need to buy a class set of laptops for use by the children.

“Laptops cost around £300 each but a donation of any size would make a difference. I really hope you can help me. Thank you.”

The total donation figure currently sits at just £392 and you can donate here.
