My Dad and I are going to help children in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya, in July 2016.
Kibera is recognised as the biggest slum in Africa and potentially the world. It houses an estimated 300,000 people who live in mud huts and tin shacks. There is little access to basic facilities such as electricity, clean water or sanitation.
We are working with ‘Lunch Bowl Network’, a charity initially set up to provide meals for orphaned and vulnerable children in Kibera, but more recently they have established some kindergardens and started a number of other outreach programmes. Their vision is to feed both the minds and the tummies and provide a foundation for a better life. www.lunchbowl.org
Dad and I are going to work in the kindergardens, help with the feeding programme, and hopefully help with a new rubgy coaching programme with street children.
We are trying to raise £1800 to cover the cost of flights, accommodation, visas, as well as to buy some sports equipment (particularly rugby balls!) to take out with us.
Thank you for any support you are able to offer.
