This school is the base for 130 children of Samburu Land north of Nairobi in Kenya. Irish Guards soldiers from Windsor are working to build accommodation for teachers.
The school is low on equipment but because of the standard of accommodation it struggles to retain staff members to teach. The new facility, which the guards are building will help to attract people to the area.
The Irish Guards who are usually based at Victoria Barracks in Windsor are in Kenya as part of their training before they are deployed to Afghanistan.
There are three teachers at the school looking after 130 pupils aged between six and 16. Around 80 per cent of children in Samburu Land are illiterate and only a third of children go to school.
Children are taught English, maths, science, social studies, Swahili and religious education. The teachers are supposed to be teaching 28 lessons a week but are teaching up to 80.
The head teacher of the school says the lack of teachers cause problems for the children. He says: "If we get more teachers, the workload will be reduced. We will be able to cover the syllabus properly."
Staff Sergeant Gareth Richardson says it has offered the soldiers of The Irish Guards a chance to bond with the children.
The Irish Guards were captivated by the children in Kenya. Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Ben Farrell said: "We gain so much from coming here, it was good to give something back."
Faye Harland stayed with The Irish Guards in Kenya to see their work on the school building.
