Borussia Dortmund Star, Jude Bellingham Raising Ksh12M for a Rural Kenyan School

Borussia Dortmund Star, Jude Bellingham Raising Ksh12M for a Rural Kenyan School

Jude Bellingham, a British teenager and Borussia Dortmund midfielder, has launched a campaign to help 300 children at Miche Bora School in Mombasa county.

On Saturday, May 14, Jude told Birmingham Live that the drive aims to raise funds to purchase laptops for the school in order to improve learning and introduce students to ICT at a young age.

The 18-year-old former Birmingham City player stated that his decision to launch the drive was influenced by the students’ socioeconomic status, as the majority of them were living in abject poverty.

“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.

The player says he is currently very interested in assisting the 300 students at Miche Bora School in a deprived area of Mombasa, Kenya. The school is run by the UK charity Mustard Seed Project, and the children are impoverished according to him.

Jude revealed that he has been helping the school by raising funds to feed the students.

“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 Mustard Seed Project to feed all the children for the rest of this year,” he remarked.

Jude stated that his generous donation, along with the support of well-wishers, will assist the students in gaining IT skills.

“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 they need to buy a class set of laptops for use by the children,” Jude told the British media.

He has so far raised Ksh55,867 for the project but hopes to raise more than Ksh12 million.

“Laptops cost around Ksh42,751 (£300) each but a donation of any size would make a difference. I really hope you can help me. Thank you,” he concluded.
