Christmas appeal

Give a little extra this year by donating to our Christmas appeal via our website, Facebook or JustGiving. Help us reach our target of €40,000.

We'd like to do more in 2018 to support communities in Kenya to provide a healthy home for their families to enable children, young people and adults to complete school and access further education.

Our work empowers people and communities by enhancing incomes and invigorating local economies.

Spread the word: please get friends, family and colleagues involved – and use our hashtag #4abrighter2018 whenever you can.

Make use of our fundraising resources below – and follow us on Facebook for even more ideas to help create a brighter future. Asante sana!
