URGENT APPEAL Children of Kitenge Africa – can you help?

Our director, Vanessa Champion, is a trustee of Kitenge Africa, and has just been sent this desperate request to help buy some much needed bedding for the children in Uganda.

At the moment they are sleeping on the floor, many to a room. It is a far better already than where they were before, having lived on the streets and slums in Kampala.

Now they are safe and are growing, they have regular health checks and education, they work as a team and slowly, their lives are being transformed thanks to dedicated work and voluntary free time given by professional people in Kampala who travel to support and mentor the children, often having to work longer hours to make up the time.

A clean bed at night, which is OFF THE FLOOR and has new clean mattresses will dramatically improve their lives overnight, literally. If you have a few dollars or pounds, please if you can, make a small donation, or indeed if you are able to buy a bed outright for the children they will name the bed after you!!

US$200 is UK £120 – you can use the link below or if you prefer to do it through us please let us know, drop us an email.

www.kitengeafrica.org/donate  Please share if you can, many many thanks for your help.

Did you know there are more children under the age of 16 in Uganda than anywhere else in the world. Education is vitally important, it the best way forward in Africa, to improve lives at a young age, protect girls and encourage understanding and knowledge to help regeneration and progress in the country. Often classes have over 300 children in them. So to help the teachers in Africa cope better and be better teachers, Red Earth goes in and trains them. Professional educators themselves, Red Earth makes a difference at grass roots level. Will you help us change this?

THE COLOURS OF AFRICA – THROUGH HER CHILDREN’S EYES

If you find time while the exhibition is on, please go and support, write a comment in the book for the children to read, or if you can’t go, leave a message on their website and if you can spare a few pounds make a little donation (maybe skip that Starbucks coffee this morning and squeeze the £3 into the Red Earth pot?)

Thanks so much for your support, means a lot to hundreds of children.

The story we often receive of Africa is one of children hungry and malnourished, a place in need. This is not the only story to be told. We welcome you to a different story, one of dreams and ambition, creativity and wonder.

Help us to empower teachers and give children in Uganda the best start in life 🙂
