Wine Tasting Fundraiser for Ondati Girls School

Join us for Spanish Wine & Tapas in support of Ondati Girls Secondary School in Kenya!

Join us for a tasting tour of fine Spanish wines and delicacies on Friday 9th March 2012, and help raise money for Ondati Girls School in Kenya!

Hosted by specialist Spanish wine merchants Bacchanalia in their boutique Riverside Wine Studio in London, the evening will begin with a reception from 6.30pm onwards. Over the evening guests will be guided through a wide range of Spanish wines by Bacchanalia’s resident experts, sample Spanish delicacies and professionally carved jamon!

We are lucky enough to have Dan Shears, a London based Singer/Songwriter, performing for us at the event. His music has been attracting growing attention all across the country and he is sure to be a fitting accompaniment to this night of opulence.

  • A 2 night stay at 5 star Spanish Wine Hotel Hacienda Zorita including 3 ‘experience’ packages
  • A tasting menu for 6 people at River Café Sergi Arola

What's special about Ondati?

The village of Ondati is located in one of the poorest regions of Kenya. Schools are few and far between, which makes it particularly hard for girls to access education. Without a decent education girls marry young, and without family planning most have their first child in their teenage years. The Ondati community has come together to start a secondary school for girls. 

The school is now starting its fourth year and has 150 students. The girls are learning about beekeeping, dairy farming and agriculture alongside the academic curriculum. The success of the school, however, means that the boarding house and classrooms that were initially built are not enough to hold all the girls wishing to study at Ondati. 

Funds raised through this event will help us build an additional dorm and classroom and hire another teacher, so that we can continue to offer young women in Western Kenya the high quality of education they deserve!
