PROJECT AFRICA offers an insight into the charitable work of the William Hill Foundation in Northern Kenya.
Since 2012 William Hill is supporting the 'Island Primary School' in the remote rural community of Ol Maisor at the foot of Mount Kenya. It's an ingenious combination between charity and executive training.
PROJECT AFRICA is a long term mission and the William Hill Foundation is aiming to improve the school facilities, raise education standards and find a way to reach financial sustainability for the Island School. It's a very ambitious hands-on project. In intervals of 3 months William Hill is sending teams of employees to Ol Maisor with the mission to offer practical help on the ground. This adventurous experience in rural Africa takes everybody out of their comfort zone. The foreign culture and the issues of poverty lead inevitably to soul searching, impressive personal growth and great teamwork. All parties are winning with Project Africa.
