    Weʼve raised £2,285 to Help the Centre for Extremely Deprived Children (CEDC) at the Laikipia Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre in Nanyuki, Kenya & the BATUK Trust.

    Funded on Saturday, 9th February 2019

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    A small group of us who work with the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) are doing a 3 day multifaceted physical challenge with the aim of raising at least £1200. All proceeds will be split between two amazing causes within Nanyuki, Kenya, where we live.

    Some of the funds raised will go to the Centre for Extremely Deprived Children (CEDC) at the Laikipia Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre in Nanyuki, Kenya. The CEDC houses 60+ children, all of whom have lived through what can only be described as hell and all are without parents or carers. Every child there has experienced hardship beyond comprehension and without CEDC, would be homeless or worse. Donations raised will go towards building a new abolitions block for the girls to give them their own privacy. Currently 60+ children share just 4 poorly maintained toilets and showers which is nowhere near enough.

    All remaiming proceeds raised will go to the BATUK Trust. Its mission is to seek to improve the lives of those living in the communities in and around where BATUK operates.

    The challenge

    As Nanyuki is directly on the equator, it sees exactly 12 hours of sunlight every day so fittingly, 12 is the theme for this challenge.

    Day 1 – Wed 9 Jan 19
    Adventurous
    To summit Point Lenana on Mount Kenya and back down. The snow-capped Point Lenana sits at 4985m (16,335ft) above sea level and is one of the highest peaks in Africa. The total elevation gained will be over 2000m and total distance covered will be in excess of 34Km, all within 12 daylight hours.

    Day 2 – Thu 10 Jan 19
    Sporting
    For 12 hours, we’ll complete a 1200m swim followed by 12 holes of golf… Again, and again, and again until the 12 hours are up and the sun goes down.

    Day 3 – Fri 11 Jan 19
    Physical
    Every 12th minute – for 12 hours, we'll all complete the following:
    1200m cycle
    12 press ups
    12 abdominal crunches
    12 burpees
    12 box jumps
    12 med ball slams

    At 2000m (7000ft) altitude, sometimes even walking upstairs can leave you breathless!

      Meet Joyce, none of the doors on their dorms are lockable which can lead to a lot of privacy issues between the boys & the girls as you can imagine.

      This is the kitchen. As you can see, there's no electricity and no ventilation.

      This is one of only 4 toilets used by all 70+ kids at the orphanage. None of the doors are lockable and as you can imagine, they get full really quickly and sometimes aren't emptied for weeks!
