We made a commitment to help the villagers around Mundeku, in Western province of Kenya, to feed their children by converting a piece of barren land into a working farm. The crops grown feed local orphan children; cattle provide milk and additional income so the farm becomes self sustaining. We dug a bore hole and installed a water pump so villagers now have access to water nearby; we have provided plants and small trees to villagers to help them establish small holdings; and we are now seeing productive crops of maize sold in the local market.
Next we hope to build a shaded study area for children who wish to use the farm for their studies.
We are providing scholarships to enable children across Kenya to attend secondary school, where their families are otherwise unable to pay the relatively modest school fees to complete their education.
In 2013 we are supporting 40 children in secondary school and two at university.
We support a young Kenyan coach (Nicholas) to fulfil his dream “to run a football academy that targets underprivileged children”. It fits our own aim of “providing opportunities for talent to flourish”.
Our funding has established a programme for children in Nairobi, feeding their passion for football through excellent, qualified coaching and encouraging them with their studies.
