Borussia Dortmund's Youngster "Jude Bellingham" Helps Complete School Building For Kids In Kenya.

Borussia Dortmund’s youngster Jude Bellingham has helped donated to the completion of the Miche Bora School for kids in Mombasa, Kenya.

Aside from playing football, the 17-year-old has decided to show his luvly side for kids, by using his talent to support with funds the construction of the school in India Ocean city of Mombasa.

The fundraising started early this year towards the school in January through a charity group called Mustard Seed, a small group in UK, partnered with the English young midfielder to raise the funds in providing quality education to poor african children. 

A project which was founded by husband and wife Geoff and Rita Fowler, they have transformed education in the region, initially starting by renting a building to educate 17 children in two classrooms.

With the help of rising star Bellingham raising the profile of the project through his social media accounts, with the charity's ambition, they have finished the upper level of the school buildings with 12 classrooms to accommodate 275 pupils.

In an interview with The Sun last year, Rita, 74, explained how Bellingham became involve in the project: "During the big give at the end of the year, Jude made a sizeable donation.

"Having Jude on our website and on social media makes a huge difference to us.

"He also set up a Virgin Money Just Giving page - quite a few people donated on that. Some of his followers said they would give £10 every time he scored a goal and it's nearly at £2,000 now.

"He's a really nice guy, I've only met him a couple of times but they are all such a lovely family.

"His father, Mark, works with my daughter and she was talking to him about the charity.

"Mark mentioned it to Jude and he showed no hesitation wanting to come on board.

"They want Jude to be known for what he does off the pitch as well as on it."

"He's so kind and caring. I can't speak highly enough of him."

This is not the first time the young footballer is extending a helping hand to the people of Mombasa. He had previously helped purchase a Royal Blue Adidas football kits (of his old club Birmingham) for the Mgongeni football team to support their talents going forward.

Jude Bellingham announced to his fans on Sunday via his Twitter account that the construction of the school was completed and children from Mombasa are enjoying learning in the newly constructed school.

“The school in Mombasa is finished and the kids are enjoying being back in lessons and learning. 

"Massive thank you to those who donated and supported, myself and the team really appreciate it,” He tweeted.

Bellingham made a £25m move from boyhood and then Championship club Birmingham City to Borussia Dortmund in July 2020, and has put up impressive performances in his first season in Germany, becoming the club’s youngest Bundesliga and Champions League goalscorer.

In November 2020, England head coach Gareth Southgate handed Bellingham his first senior cap for the national team in thier Wembley friendly against Republic of Ireland . He became the Three Lion’s third-youngest player ever.

He has so far made over 40 appearances for the Bundesliga club, scoring 4 goals and has been targetted with a move back to the Premier League, with Manchester United and Chelsea showing strong interest in the young lad, but the BlackYellow side insist that he is "untouchable" and won't consider any deal to sell this summer.
