People in Yala are starving so Urafiki has increased its feeding activities. The photo shows how food is distributed using our student volunteers – we can be confident that it gets to the people who need it most. It costs about £4 per week to feed a family. By June we hope that there will food available from the harvest- in the meantime its up to us. 100% of whatever is raised will go to the team in Kenya. Nothing is deducted here. The money goes straight to Yala to purchase much needed food. Thank you for whatever you are able to donate.
Working with Communities in Kenya
It Starts With A Village Called Yala...
We work with the team in Yala, Kenya to support villages on their journey to becoming self-sustainable. Driven by a passion to create friendships, empower individuals and lessen poverty, we aim to make a lasting difference and serve the needs of the community. Our sponsorship programmes have already succeeded in helping thousands of people and we pledge to provide support until our help is no longer needed.
Orphans and Vulnerable Children
We provide orphans and vulnerable children with the physical, mental and emotional tools to help them through their primary education.
Supporting Elderly People
Elderly and vulnerable people who have no family to care for them, are provided with food, medicine and a communal meal each month.
Secondary School Students
Our secondary education scheme supports children who would otherwise have no access to higher learning.
Medical expertise, equipment and education are provided to community members with disabilities.
Hairdressing & Tailoring
Valuable skills are shared with community members to enhance their employment opportunities.
Zero admin costs
Not a single penny is spent on administrative costs, so all funds go directly to the people who need them.
An empowered community
The team in Yala determines which programmes would be of most benefit to the community and we support their ideas.
Long term sustainability
All of our programmes are designed to have long-term sustainable benefits for the community.
