Was wondering if anyone could help me out, basically my parents sponsor an orpahange school in Kenya, the school was set up for children who are not yet at an age to obtain free education, and for one reason or another (mainly due to aids and malaria) they no longer have parents but live with family / friends who cannot afford to feed themselves, let alone another mouth too. Victoria (the lady who runs the school) feds the children 3 meals a day - 365 days a year and teaches them basic lessons (english, maths, physical education etc) all for free, relying on donations.
My parents have been sponsoring the school for a couple of years now and have in previous years taken a number of clothing items with them. We are all going over in May, and were hoping to take more uniform with us. So far we have been able to source yellow (well, lemon) polo t-shirts, and grey shorts for the boys.
However, we cannot find girls school skirts cheaply anywhere. In previous years we have been lucky as Sainsburys seem to reduce the skirts down to 75p following the left-overs from the back to school season. However, no such luck this year apart from a couple we managed to get when Woolworths were going down.
Does anyone know where we can get some cheap (and I mean cheap!) grey school skirts, the children are only young so looking for 3-6 year old sizes, and they must be grey to go with the other uniform we have. Or if not schoopl skirts, lemon polo shirts are something we could also do with more of.
Rep given for any help please!
