    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.


    'Harambee for Kenya' are a charity set out to help children that live on the streets in Kenya. The charity have two safe houses, one based in Kisii and one in Meru. The children are taken to the safe houses due to them not having a safe environment to call home. The young boys are on the streets as they are possibly being orphaned by aids or they have had to fend for themselves as they only had one parent who was unable to care for them. The children, whilst on the streets are often beaten by people and are threatened by gangs. They are often seen begging or scavenging for food from rubbish tips. These young boys have been let down by so many people and this charity wants to bring them hope, happiness and a bright future. They provide Food, Water and nutrition for each child as well as making sure their health and well being is getting looked after. Education is provided for the children to enable them to have a bright future. Personal time is very important too as its made sure that each child is given the childhood they should of been given in the first place. Harambee for Kenya make it their aim to nurture these children, they watch them grow and become valued citizens in society.

    Our group (1st Howden-Le-Wear scout group) first got in contact with Harambee for Kenya through the scouting association at a camp which takes place each year called 'Gilwell Reunion' this is a leader based camp to gain ideas and opportunity for our young people. When on this camp we met Lesley and Rodger the founders of the Charity and more of the team of Harambee for Kenya and since then we have been fundraising for their charity by selling the soap stone ornaments they make in Kenya. We also raise funds by doing a yearly 'smartie challenge' with our scouts and cubs, the aim is that they simply pour their smarties into the jar and then take the empty smartie tube home and fill it with loose change, we then collect all the tubes in and take them down to the annual camp and give both the jar of smarties and the tubes to Lesley and Rodger to help with fund raising for Harambee for Kenya.

    Though we have helped this charity, it has helped us open our eyes to the world, all the members have brought us in and treated us as part of their family. Three leaders from our group have been given the opportunity to go to Kenya and meet the boys and work on a task in which will benefit the charity over in their safe houses. We are currently fundraising as a scout group for our three leaders to go to Kenya. We are truly grateful for any donation given.

    (This money doesn't go direct to the charity, it is to help finance the activity's that the three individuals are going to undertake in Kenya)

    Thank you -1st Howden-Le-Wear scout group :)
