THE STORY:

Be The Change!

Free The Children is taking part in the New York City Half Marathon on March 17, 2013. We're working with our friends and supporters from New York to assemble a dream team of runners to support a special project.

Help us raise $10,000 to make a difference in Mwangaza, Kenya!

 

How You Can Help

Support our team at the New York City Half Marathon on March 17th! Our goal is to raise $10,000 for a drip-irrigation system in the community of Mwangaza. A drip-irrigation system helps distribute water to the roots of plants while conserving the amount of water used. It will help the community grow plants and crops at the local school that will also be used as a reliable source of food for the students. Please give generously and help us make a difference in Mwangaza!

 

Adopt a Village in Mwangaza

Free The Children, an international charity and educational partner, has been working in Kenya since 1999. Through its holistic and sustainable development model, Adopt a Village, Free The Children works to empower communities to lift themselves out of the cycle of poverty. The model has engaged many communities in Kenya’s Maasai Mara region and built schools, libraries, clean water projects, latrines, kitchens and teachers’ accommodations.

 

Free The Children has been working in the community of Mwangaza since March 2011. Mwangaza, comprised of four villages, has faced many challenges over its long history including high illiteracy rates, child labor, inadequate access to health care and clean water and food insecurity. In spite of these difficulties, the community’s greatest strength – its determined people and their dedication to their children – has helped them overcome countless obstacles. From rallying together to purchase the original plot of land that the school was built on to forming an active School Management Committee invested in their children’s future, the people of this community have never stopped believing in a stronger, more sustainable future for their children. Free The Children, in partnership with the community, is dedicated to improving their access to quality free primary education, health care, clean water and sanitation facilities and awareness, sustainable income opportunities and food security.
