Weʼre raising £8,000 to allow Rahhma & Tabassum to go to Kenya to help with conservation work, school improvement and traditional house building in Tsavo and Muhaka
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Muhaka village remains one of the poorest communities in the area and many of its residents cannot afford to repair or rebuild their houses, which have deteriorated over time. The school is also in a constant state of disrepair. If we reach the target, we can help by building traditional housing for people and supporting the ongoing renovation of the school.
Human wildlife conflict is an ongoing and significant issue in Tsavo, threatening the future for many important species such as elephants and lions. If able to go, we can then get involved in initiatives to promote a peaceful co-existence between the community and the local wildlife, such as improving natural waterholes and planting indigenous trees to safeguard the future for these wonderful animals.
And finally, the local school and educational facilities are very dilapidated and erosion from seasonal flooding is threatening the buildings foundations making them liable to collapse. We can help by building or renovating school buildings and tackling erosion so that the children have a clean and safe academic environment in which to thrive.
