£360raised of £450 target by 12 supporters

    Weʼve raised £360 to Help Kelvin Ambaza Kenyan Orphan finish his last step to graduate as a rural Kenyan Nurse and become self sufficient. I met him 6 years ago

    Funded on Friday, 16th December 2016

    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.


    I met Kelvin Ambaza while traveling in Kenya, he was 15 years old and orphaned trying to get help from extended family to get through secondary school, they could no longer afford to send him to school. I then said I'd help and that's where our 6 year journey began. I found him a school and paid the school directly. He wanted to work in healthcare and he got into enrolled community health nursing school with the Kenyan Medical Training College with whom he is graduating with in December! He already got his grades and passed with Credit! He still needs to volunteer and have food and accommodation in order to successfully get a job in January and go to collect his graduation papers and pay for his Pinn number. This is the last leg of his journey and I would appreciate your help with this. I fund raised last year but the last 5 months I have been paying out of my pocket and now have used again £500 out of my credit card to help him survive. He has no one else, we are his only hope for starting a fresh future. Please any donation amount hugely gratefully received! Thank you all for your help so far and now!

      I am a Nurse. When volunteering and travelling in Kenya I met Kelvin Ambaza. He was a depressed 15 year old as he had no future and he wanted so much more in life, he wanted to be a healthcare worker. Being a Nurse myself I felt the need to help him.
