Our work is only possible because of the support we receive from a wide range of people and institutions around the world. Every penny, shilling or cent counts towards making a big difference. You can be a part of the team that helps to resource positive impact for disadvantaged children in Kenya! Here are a few ideas…
Do you have a special birthday or event coming up? A big anniversary? A wedding? Baby’s first birthday? Instead of friends and guests struggling to guess what to buy for you; make it easy and make a difference, by having people gift to Vision Africa instead. If you are in the UK you can set up a page on Virgin Money Giving. Wherever you are, let us celebrate with you by telling us about your event.
To celebrate her first birthday, Shiloh’s parents appealed on Facebook for donations to the St Andrews Baby Unit instead of gifts. They raised $1,690 (140,000ksh) in total! This was used to buy new plastic chairs, install electricity into an outside kitchen and sponsor three children in nursery school.
Fundraising can be as active as you want. Get sponsored for a run/walk/swim/bike ride or stay in the comfort of your sitting room and sell off unwanted items on Ebay and donate the proceeds.
Get your friends involved. You could host a coffee morning, cake stall or dinner party and charge an entry fee or for items sold. Contact us for resources you can use at your event. We’d love to hear your ideas! Make sure you take photos so that we can show others the great work you are doing!
