UK Deputy High Commissioner to Kenya, presents Learning Possibilities’ donation to Peter Tabichi Foundation
We are delighted that yesterday, HE Julius Court, the UK Deputy High Commissioner to Kenya visited Brother Peter at Keriko Secondary School in Nakuru, Kenya to hand over a cheque from our fundraising events this year. It was a joyful day, with teachers, students, parents, educators, government leaders and other invited guests present.
“I take this time to thank you for your generous support. We promise to ensure that the funds benefit the children. The classroom project will be kicking off as soon as possible and I will keep you updated. Thank you and be blessed.”

Once again, we would like to thank everyone who has kindly donated to a truly great cause. In total we raised £10,409 . We look forward to seeing the progress of the classroom build and will keep you updated! The funds will be used towards the development of a classroom block at Keriko Mixed Day Secondary School.
“As a social enterprise with a mission to enhance education outcomes, we are delighted that the provision of new classrooms in Keriko will over its lifetime aid thousands of students from deprived backgrounds learn and gain useful employment. We look forward to working with Brother Peter in continuation of the development of the school.” Commented Learning Possibilities CEO, Dr Mehool Sanghrajka
On behalf of Learning Possibilities, Baijul Shah and Rumit Shah, we would like to say a huge thank you to all our players, sponsors and partners for your generosity and support at our first Peter Tabichi Foundation Golf Event! The weather could have been better, but it did not stop us from raising an incredible £9,065 and for that we are thankful!
This event comes at a prominent time where issues have been heightened due to the coronavirus pandemic. The money raised will support Brother Peter’s foundation to build new classrooms for students at the Keriko School in Nakuru, Kenya. This will help hundreds of children over the coming years and bring greater prosperity to the region.
Peter Tabichi is a science teacher and Franciscan Brother who gives away 80% of his monthly income to help those in need. In 2019 Brother Peter won the Global Teacher Prize Award after being recognised for his dedication and hard work ensuring local and underprivileged children gained a proper education.
His village is made up of different tribes and the lives of these children can be tough, especially in a region where drought and famine are frequent. Most pupils come from poor families and almost a third are orphans or only have one parent. Their school, where Brother Peter is a teacher at, is in a very remote area with some children walking up to 7km along roads that become impassable during rainy season.
Brother Peter’s vision is to promote access to quality education through empowering the disadvantaged children in the community. His mission is to embrace opportunities of 21st century education to unlock the potential of these disadvantaged children.
We hope this event will be the first of many in supporting this worthy cause and bettering the education for the children in Nakuru.

Learning Possibilities is delighted to announce v7.0 of it’s LP+365 platform. The platform was initially launched in 2005 and is now the leading cloud-based solution for transforming Office 365 into a learning and collaboration app for schools and colleges.
‘We are exciting that v7 will be launched in August’, said Mandeep Dhillon, CTO at Learning Possibilities who led the development team, ‘with significant new features’.
The new platform offers an exciting and modern new look and feel, with one-click access to key features on each dashboard. ‘We have significantly improved performance’, added Dhillon, ‘so that those with poor connectivity or devices have a better user experience’. The seamless integration with LP+ ADOPT, with single signon, means that courses, scorm content and exams can now be added to the platform.
The dashboard tiles also offer a download feature, enabling access to content when offline, and our e-library – with over 10,000 refence books – is built in.
