Reunited with family!
To our wonderful supporters,
Today, I am writing my final Global Giving update for our Boys Programme as this programme is coming to an end. We will be taking some time to review and redevelop our work with young men on the streets before relaunching in early 2017.
I want to take this opportunity to celebrate the achievements of this programme and the incredible young men we are able to support because of your generosity and belief in the work we do. Since we launched our appeal in November 2015 your generosity has enabled us to support 50 homeless young men in a variety of ways. Some of these young men have returned to formal education, some have moved into independent living, others have moved back with their families, some are now working. Some young people have returned to the streets but feel more positive about their lives and are able to make positive life choices whilst homeless.
So many young people have been able to change their lives through your generosity. Young people like Simon* who is now in Form 2 of Secondary School after 5 years on the streets, or James* who after 12 years of being homeless is now working full time in a community syndicate of vehicle washers, or Ben* who is sitting for his school exams next year and after attending a training camp has now qualified for the Kenya National Youth Boxing Team. So many young men now have a brighter future because of your support. From all of us at Glad's House, THANK YOU!
Please keep an eye out on Facebook and Twitter for our new and improved Boys Programme - we are all so excited about what the future holds for this work. As you have been so important to us up until now, I hope you will continue this journey with us and our young people. If you would like any more information about our next steps please feel free to contact me on email@example.com
Once again, from all of us, staff and young people, thank you for your support and belief in our work - it is so appreciated by us all.
With very best wishes
