EXTENDED FUNDRAISER - https://www.givey.com/timsmarathon Thank you everyone for your support! Tim On Sunday 21st April I am running the London Marathon to raise money for International Needs to help them provide for street children in Kenya. An estimated 60,000 children and young people live on the streets in Nairobi; the majority in informal settlements, relying on scavenging, begging and picking through rubbish for daily survival. Many have ended up on the street due to abandonment, domestic conflict or extreme poverty at home and have had no formal basic education. The goal of the project is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-integrate street boys in Kenya back to their families and society through a gospel-centred approach to restore them. The project is executed by International Needs UK through Grace Empowerment, a local Christian charity in Kenya. The charity rescues street boys and youth and provides them with food, health care, identity cards, clothes and other basic resources at a drop-in centre. Grace Empowerment goes further to support them with non-formal education, vocational training and counselling from the gospel to break them free from redundancy and addictions to drugs. Grace Empowerment has rescued over 100 street boys since it began its mission in 2006. It now seeks funds to build a rehabilitation centre which will provide a longer and more defined rehabilitation programme for the boys whilst harnessing their skills and talents. This will enable them to earn subsistent livelihoods when they leave the centre and re-integrate back with their families and into society. Please support me in undertaking this challenge by giving what you can to help street boys in Kenya with Grace Empowerment. Thank you so much! Tim
