Lucy & Kenya
I’ve just finished transition year and I will go to Nairobi, Kenya at the end of this month where I will volunteer with Jengana, a charity in the heart of Nairobi's slums [see jengana.com]. I will visit mothers and children in the slums, where 1 million people live in 4 sq km! - That’s like 1 MILLION people living in tin shacks with no clean water or decent sewage systems in an area a little larger than my local town, Manorhamilton, which has a population of 1,500!!
I will help with street feeding at night; Kipepeo Children’s Home and rehabilitation homes for street boys. I will also travel my Kenyan friend, Sean and his family and start research into how we, from Sligo and Leitrim, might help people in Kenya’s slums get clean water – a project I might take forward through UISCE.org and Glencar Water.
For vaccines, flights, visa, travel insurance, pocket money, gifts to slum children, Jengana fee, Gift to Jengana mission [€500 - €1000], emergency reserve.
