DID YOU KNOW? Chaffinch is run 100% by volunteers, so more of your money is used ‘on the ground’ in Kibera!

Food, Shelter, Education.

These are three things we think no child should be without. Yet for many within the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya, they are not guaranteed. Chaffinch works with Future Stars Development Centre to support some of the most vulnerable children of the slum.

“I need a sponsor”

Brighton lives with his mother and older sister in a one-room home in Kibera. Brighton’s mother is HIV+ and this causes significant difficulties for the family. Without medication, she is often too sick to work but, if she buys the medication, there is little money remaining for food.

Brighton was unable to attend school as it was impossible to afford the fees. On hearing of the family’s circumstances, Brighton was offered a place at the Future Stars school. As a result of the late start to his education, he is significantly behind other children of his age. He also struggles to concentrate on his lessons at times but is beginning to benefit from the structure of school. He is a bubbly, affectionate child who always has a smile for everyone.

With the arrival of ‘Freedom Day’ in the UK, we felt it was time to give you a treat. Clearly, the pandemic is far from over and there are many different views around the easing of restrictions. However, one thing that is not debatable is that it’s been a tough 17 months. The “Post-Covid Pamper Raffle” is here to help even if ‘post-covid’ remains only a hope on the horizon.
