Saidia Children's Home Project

THE STORY:

Our efforts center on Saidia Children's Home in Gilgil, and other projects which improve the lives of AIDS orphans and other disadvantaged children in Gilgil and the surrounding area.

There is no social security net in Kenya. Children with no family are on their own, and today many families have lost the entire parent generation to AIDS. The idea of 'charity', so normal in our society, is a new idea in many developing countries. We aim to create projects that will, over time, become independent of outside aid, relying instead on a mix of self-sufficiency and local support. It is precarious, but if we can help at this crucial time it will become sustainable in the long term. Small amounts of money given through us go a long way!

This Crowdwise fundraiser will benefit the Saidia Children's Home sister organization in the USA: The Orphan Support League. The League focuses on raising funds for the Saidia Children’s Home and its outreach programs in Gilgil such as the Bondeni Project which provides pre-school and food for approximately 75 children each day who live in the red-light district of the town.

The Orphan Support League is a charity that has NO administrative, fundraising, or advertising costs. All the people who choose to work for the League do so on a voluntary basis.  The Bax Family pays for all expenses involved with running the League.

The League’s role is to act as a responsible gatekeeper ensuring that 100% of the funds are spent wisely on projects that they have a close involvement with and that are visited regularly.
