A really big thank you to St Matthew & St Oswald Church in Rugby for raising £11,643 toward our building project through their Lent Appeal. The church members took on a whole range of challenges, including a sponsored bike ride, to raise this amazing total. You are a real inspiration for others to try something themselves!
This takes us past the halfway point in reaching our target. Can you help us reach our target?
The Big Give appeal raised over £5000 towards the Staff Accommodation Block and so has maximised all of the matched giving funds. However, we didn't stop there. We came close to reaching our target of raising £10,000 during Christmas 2022 towards this cause.
including donations, pledges and Gift Aid
Casa Reom Trust is taking part this year in The Big Give to raise funds for the new Staff Accommodation Block. This special appeal will run for just one week and we hope to raise £10,000 over the week. Thanks to some of our supporters who have already pledged funds, the first £2500 of donations will be match funded.
The Big Give Christmas Campaign is now closed
Work is underway on the foundations for the new Staff Accommodation Block at Casa Reom. This is the final building planned for the site and is funded by donations from supporters.
The Staff Accommodation Block is being designed flexibly to house several families or a team of single workers. Currently staff accommodation is available in the smaller rooms of the boys dormitory, so the new block will free up more room for them.
Look out for fundraising events but meanwhile you can donate using the link at the top of this webpage.
Thanks to everyone who gave to the 2021 Christmas Appeal. The money was used to buy gifts and clothes for the boys and provided some special celebration meals for the staff and boys over the Christmas and New Year period.
But it was also an opportunity for Casa Reom Staff and Boys to be generous to their neighbours. Gifts of school uniforms and food were donated to some of the poorest families living nearby.
Thanks to a Swiss donor, Casa Reom has been able to open a new computer suite on the Inhamizua site.
This will be used to train the boys at Casa Reom in using computers to give them an advantage in future employment.
Casa Reom's new kitchen is now up and running with staff and boys able to cook with gas rather than charcoal fires. Most rural families use charcoal which can cause health issues and is more expensive. Learning to cook with gas is a key skill that all the boys can learn as they take turns on the kitchen rota.
These pictures show Jone who is using the cooking skills he is learning at the nearby Young Africa centre and which could lead to job opportunites in the future or even a new career!
The boys also learn how to grow food in the Casa Reom garden so they know how to be self sufficient when they leave the centre.
