Weʼve raised £50 to build a family home in Kenya
- Fareham, United Kingdom
- Funded on Sunday, 4th December 2016
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We support a community based project in Kenya called Grace 24 Opportunities. (Www.grace24.co.uk).
The family run project has been based in a mud house on the land owned by the The mud house on the Grace 24 land has had termites and been damaged by bad weather, it is now uninhabitable.
The house is home for Jesca and Joseph Nyongesa, their three children and two additional children. In school holidays there are often extra children who stay with the family where they are fed and join in with activities.
They are now living in temporary rented accommodation until the house can be rebuilt.
We are raising funds to build a more permanent home on the Grace 24 land, which will be a home and office for the Grace 24 family. Our total target is £5000. By buying ‘bricks’ for £2.50 each you will be making a valuable contribution to this project. We have 1200 ‘bricks’ available to buy, this will raise £3000. Shoreline Church will be adding a significant amount to this to raise the total to £5000 which should be enough.
Please donate £2.50 to "buy a brick" and help build this family home.
