Footsteps is a charity that focuses on changing the lives of children living in the desperately poor communities around Kisumu, near Lake Victoria in Kenya. It is run entirely voluntarily and every penny raised goes to fund our work in Kenya.
Its aim is to enable Kenyan children to reach their potential to become healthy, educated, self-sustaining and contributing individuals who can take a leading role in improving their own lives and the lives of those in the communities in which they live.
The Footsteps Rafiki Programme is aimed at broadening the experience of the children in the local communities; bringing some fun and play into their lives: introducing them to sports and arts and creating the opportunity to meet new people and gain some understanding of the world outside their village by bringing young adults over to Kenya. All of the volunteers need to raise the money to cover the costs of their trip which includes all travel, accommodation, food and equipment - they are also asked to raise an extra donation towards a chosen project at the schools they visit.
