I have had a few questions about how people can help the kids at Shikamana.
Currently, I am talking with a lady who has been organising sponsorship of the children. This has been suspended for a while due to reasons beyond anyone’s control. Until we can establish a charity with someone on the ground in Kenya it looks like it will remain that way.
I do have Carla on the ground who I can talk with and look at her buying uniform for the kids…if this is something you would like to help with, please message me!
So, for now if you do want to help these amazing children in any way, I will be collecting clothes, shoes, and toys to send over a shipment to them. Things like balloons, footballs, rugby balls (the kids haven’t yet learnt rugby but I plan on changing this!!) kites, bubbles, skipping ropes, all the things kids love to play with. Also stuff for school, so pencils, pens, exercise books, rubbers, rulers that kind of thing go down a treat!
I am hoping to send a shipment over in May/June (it will be sent via a friend of mine in Kenya as the postal service is not the best and it means I can pay the import tax) and then take a full suitcase when I head back in October.
So if you would like to help, apart from keeping an eye out for upcoming fundraising events (yes, I am considering spending a day in a bath of beans) please drop me a message and I will let you know where you can send things 🙂
