During a recent recce for the Organising Committee for the November Commemoration, the importance of ‘setting the scene’ to explain the background events was stressed. A decision was therefore made to raise funds to update and modernise the East African Campaign Exhibition at Sarova Taita Hills Lodge. In order to inspire and engage visitors, the Campaign will now be told through graphics and images with a short, sharp commentary show casing the amazing artefacts that have been loaned to the exhibit. We also hope to have a scale model of Mashoti Fort, life size cut-outs of soldiers and Askaris in uniform and a few airplanes flying above!

Details will be published here how well wishers can make contributions with Mobile Money, credit card payments or PayPal. For details on how to help raise the projected budget of KShs 450.000/- also click on the link below which is a crowd funding platform.

The commemoration event will take place in Taita Taveta between the 23rd and 25th of November to remember the ending of the First World War East African Campaign in November 2018.
