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 after being orphaned by diseases like AIDS or because their parents are abusive or unable to care for them. Street children are vulnerable. They have no identity and often have to scavenge through rubbish tips for food.We provide safe houses in areas where young people are homeless. We ensure that each project has the right support before moving on to the next.
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 now have two safe houses. One in Kisii and one in Meru. 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.
Each night an estimated 300,000 children will sleep on the streets of Kenya. 28th August is "Camp for Kenya" night. Help us to raise money to provide safe houses for street children. Camp and live outside for 24 hours (no matter the weather!) and challenge 5 other people to do the same. For an extra challenge, see if you can survive on a budget of £5 for all food and drink!! To enter make you donation of £5 or more by following this link:
