I just want to clear up any doubts about Shikamana School for Orphans and Disadvantaged Children, in Diani. There is a rumour being passed via private messages about this school being under investigation for misuse of funds.
These callous rumours are affecting the support these fantastic children receive.
The school is UNDER NO SUCH INVESTIGATION and never has been. The UK based Charity monitors very closely the use of funds we send, and give specific instructions for how to spend the money to directly benefit the children. The relationship between the staff at the school and the three individuals running the charity is as strong as ever. We are not fools, we know that we are dealing with a country riddled with corruption so go out of our way, to ensure that total accountability for our funds is maintained. We find the staff are proud to provide such transparency for us.
A Nairobi Law firm handles the income the school receives from the American Benefactor, which I think most would agree is a sure fire way of keeping things legal and above board.
Please do not judge this school on the comments of one rumour, but ask further questions on the open forum and see what replies you get. Using PM's for such damage is cowardice and malicious. After all, if there was any truth in these rumours surely we all deserve to know about them, or at least have the opportunity to give an alternative view point.
