Very excited to have almost met my fundraising goal within 24 hours of starting the crowdfunding. Please support my friends in Nairobi who need See More

THE STORY:

I met Kevin Ogutu in Nairobi in 2014. He welcomed me into his home and showed me around his neighbourhood of LungaLunga . He is an incredible change-maker in the slum and I wrote a piece about the work he is doing to uplift his community on my blog:

Recently, his sister has had an accident and, unable to work, she is recovering while Kevin takes care of the family. As we chatted the other day, I realized that he could probably use some help. He divulged that he hasn't been able to afford to send his 13 year old niece to school this September for Grade 7 at St. Mary's Primary School. The fees are only $350 CAD.

Please help her attend school while her mother gets on her feet again. Every little bit counts to help relieve this family of their burdens.

This man is one of the very good friends I made in Kenya. He helped keep me safe throughout my travels and keep my head up, present and positive. I would like to return the favour to him right now with this fundraiser.

Many thanks and much love,

Chelsea Love
