MBE for Carolyn

We are delighted to announce that our Carolyn Murray has been awarded an MBE in the 2020 New Year’s Honours list.   This is for Services to Education in South Sudan. It is well deserved and recognises both her commitment to IK and the dedication of the staff as well as the continued contributions of the trustees and many supporters of the charity.

In November Carolyn and Claire attended a special joint celebration of ten years education in the new building and the graduation of 140 children who will start primary school in January . After a parade around the area the celebration continued with speeches interspersed with dances, poems and songs from the children and lots of food and cake!! . A great day. Well done Malish and your amazing team!

Immanuel Kindergarten

Immanuel Kindergarten was founded in the 1980s to serve the young children of Yei in South Sudan. A long civil war intervened and the children and familes became refugees in Uganda. When they eventually returned to Yei nearly 20 years later with very few belongings a priority was to re open the Kindergarten. The roof was falling in and inside was dark and dreary. The Immanuel Kindergarten charity was founded to work in partnership with the families of Yei to build a new school .

  • New Hall

    Carolyn visited the Kindergarten in November 2015 and spent time with the Kindergarten children and staff doing some informal training and identifying future needs. Carolyn attended the opening of the new Hall which is a great facility and will provide a place for the children to eat away from the hot sun or torrential rain.

  • Graduation Day!

    It was a day of great celebrations as the older children graduated from the Kindergarten. They will move to their new school in February

  • Large well managed classes

    There are now 350 children between 3 classes which to the western eye is horrendous but the children are well taught and when they move to the local primary school at 7/8 years old they are achieving in the top 5% of the intake.

  • The amazing hardworking staff

    Head teacher Miriam and the 5 teachers work incredibly long hours and are very committed to giving the children the best possible start in life. Music and singing plays a large part in the children's education
