Charity Number 1122571
When the Rev Seme Solomona became Bishop of Yei and moved there in the 1980's his wife Esther Poni Solomona started a small Kindergarten in the vestry of the Cathedral. The people of Yei had to leave in a hurry in the early 1980s leaving behind everything. After years of civil war the children and families returned from being refugees in Uganda. They had moved several times each time leaving behind most of their possessions. When they returned to Yei to re build their lives Esther and her Mothers Union Collegues re started the Kindergarten but they had only a delapidated hut for a school. The children deserved a new start and so Immanuel Kindergarten Charity was set up to work in partnership with the families of Yei in South Sudan to build a school for the the young children.
