DARIEN, Conn. -- The Royle Kids Care Club in Darien is teaching children about the scarcity of water in their community, and they collected and built Legos to send to children at the Nambale Magnet School in Kenya along with handmade cards.
Special guests Nina Miller from the Darien Nature Center, former Selectman John Lundeen and Suzanne Shultz of the Darien Beautification Commission spoke to Royle students about ways to conserve water and the importance of maintaining the ecosystems of the Five Mile River and Long Island Sound.
Following the presentation, Royle students headed outside to plant flowers and beautify the school’s gardens.
The Nambale Magnet School, established in 2009, is a residential school for 325 children in preschool through eighth grade who are orphaned or rendered vulnerable by AIDS in rural western Kenya.
The mission is to provide a nurturing environment in which the most destitute of children can access a quality education, thereby breaking the cycle of poverty and hopelessness.
The bright colorful Legos collected by Royle students will go to the school to teach about shapes, engineering, problem solving and imaginative fun.
The Royle Kids Care Club is a national organization that helps children develop the spirit of charity and compassion through hands on community projects. Royle’s Kids Care Club is open to any interested student who wants to help others in their community and their world.
