Harambee is Swahili for “all pull together”. We would like you to join us, pulling together, to help the street children of Kenya. Thousands of children live on the streets for many reasons including being orphaned by aids or they have had to fend for themselves because there is only one parent who is unable to care for them. Some have even been ill treated by their own parents. Street children have no identity and are regularly beaten by people. They are often seen begging and scavenging on rubbish tips for food.Since 1998, the founders of this charity have worked closely with Kenyan adults who have been supporting these young people in caring for their needs. This is not easy as many of the adults are living on the bread line themselves and have their own families to support. We plan to provide safe houses in areas where young people are homeless. We will ensure that each project is working well, with the right support, before moving on to others. These young people have been let down by adults all too often. Harambee for Kenya is not prepared to do them the same injustice.When many people think of Africa, they tend to think about the animals and the beautiful landscapes. Tourists do not generally see all the realities. You can make a difference for these Children. They are the future of Kenya.So how can you help? There are a number of ways you can support these children.
Sponsor the project directly or sponsor a child.
By paying an amount of your choice by regular standing order. No amount is too small and gratefully accepted, but to give you an idea, £20 per month will cover the basic cost of supporting a child with food, clothes and medical help.
You can help us raise money by doing a boot sale or sponsored event
Hold an Harambee Party. Invite your friend round to come and see
African Crafts they can buy. Or run a quiz night for your neighbours to enjoy.
If you belong to a youth or school group you could adopt part of the project and work to help maintain it.
You could even take a trip out to Kenya to work on the project.
Encouragement and support are greatly appreciated and needed.
