Fundraiser For Lasallian Twinning School Mwangaza College In Kenya
The La Salle College High School Office of Mission and Ministry will hold a "La Salle Responds" fundraiser on Friday, February 26, 2016 for Mwangaza College.
La Salle College High School's Office of Mission and Ministry will hold a "La Salle Responds" fundraiser on Friday, February 26, 2016 to support Mwangaza College in Nakuru, Kenya. Students are asked to donate $5 to dress down for the day, but can donate more to support the initiative.
La Salle College High School and Mwangaza College are connected through the Lasallian Twinning Initiative. This initiative partners schools in the Lasallian Region of North America with Lasallian schools in the Lwanga District of the Christian Brothers. The Lwanga District includes the countries of Kenya, Nigeria, Eritrea, Ethiopia and South Africa. The annual Twinning appeal provides for the educational needs of African students who are economically poor and often even without families. Financial contributions from the North American schools are used to cover the cost of educating students in their respective twin schools in Africa. These costs include tuition, teacher salaries, building/maintenance expenses, purchase of books and school supplies, and even board/lodging.

Principal - Mwangaza College
Recent donations from La Salle College High School allowed for Mwangaza to purchase computers and monitors for the school's IT Department.
The Brothers of the Christian Schools assumed direction of the school in 1993. It has grown to include more than 450 students and seven departments, including accounts, fashion and design, hair dressing, information technology, and food and beverage.
All members of the community are welcome to donate to this initiative. In 2015, Lasallian schools in the United States and Canada contributed nearly $179,800 to their twin schools.
