    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    Over 75% of Kenya's children and teenagers experience a denial of at least one of their basic human rights (e.g., access to clean water, education and healthcare). Two million children are out of school, one million orphaned and 700,000 live with a disability (statistics from UNICEF). Around 1 in every 68 people have Autism Spectrum Disorder. Since 2017, Tangaza University, Nairobi and Queen's University, Belfast have partnered to run a child development clinic and provide assessments for children with learning and behavioural needs whose parents can not afford the support and treatment they need.

    Donna, Sarah and Amy are heading to Nairobi, Kenya, this July, for the placement module of our MSc in Psychology of Childhood Adversity. We will be working as assistant psychologists at the child development clinic at Don Bosco Youth Education Centre, Nairobi.

    We are hoping to raise £2500 to help buy much needed autism assessment materials for the clinic. The money raised will only be used to buy these materials, which we will bring with us from Belfast to Nairobi in July. The clinic assesses the cognitive, behavioural, language, social and emotional needs of the children referred there from local schools and nurseries. It is supported by a team of local and visiting psychologists from Tangaza University College, Nairobi and Queens University, Belfast.

    We hope that you can help us raise funds to assist the local staff and buy materials for the Don Bosco Youth Education Centre, Nairobi, to support the fantastic work they do improving outcomes for some of the world's most vulnerable children.
