Good Life Orphanage
At Guardian Angels’ RCPS we encourage our children to reach out to those who need our help.
Over the past few years we have developed a good relationship with the Good Life Orphanage. The Good Life Orphanage provides a loving home to over fifty orphans in the Mombasa area of Kenya. It was founded by Kevin and Mary McGuire – parishioners at Guardian Angels’ who saw the desperate need to provide care for abandoned children, after taking a holiday there. Their children have the opportunity to grow up in a loving, caring home environment. Kevin and Mary have now also built a school to enable 250 children to receive an education and be fed daily.
Guardian Angels’ pupils raise money for the children in many ways – often our pupils come up with their own ideas for fundraising and have developed their own entrepreneurial skills in the process, running cake stalls, craft sales and many ‘fun’ events!
Our school also sponsors two children – Ali and Janey – and has undertaken to pay for their education and care. Recently our Year 6 children have had the opportunity to Skype our friends at the Good Life which has helped us to develop a greater understanding of each other’s’ lives and cultures.
We hope their bonds will grow in the future.
