Weʼre raising £100 to Help children in a primary/ secondary school in West Kenya with their basic needs to learn at school.

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.

I have just returned from a school exchange in West Kenya, I saw this child with a Facebook T shirt, the irony was too much to ignore. A world apart, I thought I would use the photo to raise funds for the school. Would you consider donating the price of a take away coffee? £3 buys a pair of school shoes made in Kenya, or 10 school dinners or 20 pens and pencils etc. A school uniform costs £7.00, many children are Kenyan Scouts and need a shirt costing £5. Many primary school children have no shoes or lunch, just one meal a day. There is no drinking water in the school, they bring it in, in a flithy container from their local stream or bore hole. This is only one of thousands of schools in Kenya, we have worked with this school for over 7 years and have built trust that all funds will go directly to the children.
