PCAT also works in partnership with a number of other agencies, in particular with the Anglican diocese of Mbeere, part of the Anglican communion. The diocese, under the leadership of Bishop Moses Nthukah, has established a number of initiatives to support sustainable development in the diocese.
Makutano Children’s Home is in the diocese of Mbeere. It provides accommodation for a group of boys whose families are no longer able to support them due to a variety of reasons including losing parents to Aids and family breakdowns. Makutano Children’s Home started in 2004 and was officially opened in 2010 by the Archbishop of Kenya. Members of St Mary’s church, Woodford, Essex in the UK provide regular support for the young people in the home, in particular to help with the cost of secondary education. All funds raised by St Mary’s for the home are managed by the Peter Cowley Africa Trust, and the Trust collects Gift Aid on all such donations.
Project Riandu started in 2014. It is a partnership between a group of students from Nottingham University, the Diocese of Mbeere and The Mothers Union in the Diocese of Mbeere. There are 71 primary schools for deaf children in Kenya, but only five secondary schools. The aim of the project is to raise £300,000 to meet the cost of designing and building a new secondary school for the deaf at Riandu, near Siakago in Mbeere. The project is supported by CPMG Architects. Donations for the project will be managed by the Peter Cowley Africa Trust and the Trust will collect Gift Aid on all donations made to it for Project Riandu.
