Weʼve raised £200 to give homeless boys a fresh start in life, allowing them to have a prosperous future.

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.
On the 21st of August I will be flying out to Mombasa in Kenya to spend a month educating young, homeless boys. These boys are taken off the streets, sometimes without shoes and with no possessions to their name. Often addicted to glue to soften hunger pains, these boys are given a second chance in life by the street kids project. Here the boys are taught basic English and maths as well as being fed and given a bed. From here they can, if possible, return home or move on to a more formal school where they can achieve qualifications and ultimately, employment. The boys often arrive having suffered serious abuse on the streets, so this project is vital to allow them to prosper and escape from their difficult pasts. Any kind donations will go directly to the boys I will spend time with, buying food, clothes and educational supplies. Any help, however small, is very much appreciated.

So I head to the airport tomorrow afternoon and fly out early Monday morning. I have exceeded my fundraising target which is incredible, thank you to all those have helped. My page will remain open however as any further donations would be very much welcome and will go directly to the kids I work with. These are just some of the amazing educational supplies that I am taking with me, I will purchase many more upon arrival.
