We are very pleased to announce our involvement in a project in Lamu, Kenya that will provide a full school year’s educational support for 103 disadvantaged, orphaned and abandoned children being cared for in a shelter run by Anidan.
Anidan is a NGDO that has been operating in Lamu since 2002. It rescues and thereafter provides care for children that are orphans, abandoned or in some other way disadvantaged, from the streets of Lamu. 50% of the children being cared for by Anidan are also provided with a shelter to live. Under Anidan’s care all rescued children are fed, dressed, kept safe, given medical care and educated.
Over the coming months we, Rotary Club of Stockholm International (RCSI), intend to raise €6000 that will go directly towards the purchase of stationery, text books, school bags and uniforms for 103 children (73 of primary and 31 of secondary school age) under Anidan’s care and who lack educational support grants from Anidan’s main sponsors.
We intend to raise the entire €6000 pledged through direct donations, raffles, auctions and fundraising events during the rest of 2018. The main fundraising event, which is being supported by the Kenyan Embassy and Hotel Hellsten here in Stockholm, will take place on October 5th at The Historical Museum.
If you feel you would like to support this project then please consider participating in our planned raffles, auctions and fundraising events coming up later on in 2018. We will be providing full details of these on this website and on our RCSI Facebook Page over the coming months.
