Wednesday 16th June marks the annual International Day of the African Child.

We would like to give you an opportunity to do something positive on that day to help Vision Africa as we work to create brighter futures for the children we support through our projects in Kenya.

Many of us use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and share news. At Vision Africa we do the same with our Facebook page which now has a following of around 600 people. We would like to take that number to over 1,500 on the 16th June by asking as many people as possible to suggest the page to their friends. It’s a simple way of helping and it is free!

For those who haven’t yet joined us on Facebook, you’re missing out! As well as updates from our various projects, we use the page to show some of the latest designs of jewellery and clothing from Crafted. It is also a great place to find ways to engage with our work. There might be times we’re looking for volunteers to help both in Kenya or abroad, models needed for fashion shows/photo shoots, invitations to host Crafted parties, opportunities to mentor children at our projects etc. Please join us and suggest the page to all your friends.

On the same day, 16th June, our partners at GlobalGiving are offering a 50% bonus on any donations made to projects listed on their website. Vision Africa currently has three projects listed on GlobalGiving:

Seed of Hope – Train 300 Destitute Kenyan Girls for Self Reliance

Baby Unit – Care for 15 orphaned and abandoned Kenyan babies

Kibera Mpira Mtaani – Use soccer as a tool to educate 2500 Kibera youths

Please help us spread the word about this bonus offer and together we can raise funds to help create brighter futures for children in Kenya. You will then be able to see the results of those donations through our Facebook updates as well as the news updates on our website. If you would like to get involved with our work please use our contact form to get in touch.
