What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.Read more
Karibuni Children is a small registered charity in the UK (1044872) which punches far beyond it's weight and 95% of the money donated is used for the purpose it is given - we are very mean here in the UK!
We support children in 15 projects across Kenya in both urban and rural slum areas of total deprivation. The children (and by extension their carers) are supported from nursery through to them having a qualification and skill to support themselves and their families. We walk with them through primary, secondary and college or university education.
Three Trustees visit every year at their own expense and meet with the children and young people and all involved with them.
Every two years or so, we take a work party to live and work alongside the local people and do physical work to improve the conditions at the projects - a life-changing experience for us all! Everyone pays their own fares and costs - no funds raised for the children is used for the volunteers. The cost of refurbishment and repair is borne by Karibuni; by crowdfunding I am hoping to raise some of the money needed so that we still have enough to continue our feeding, education and health care with these very vulnerable, but keen and enthusiastic children.
The more we raise, the more we can achieve in Kenya!
