Thanks to you we did it!!!

Wow! What a fantastic result… we are thrilled to report that we made our target to fund the salary of a street outreach worker at CENIT for next year. You, our supporters made it possible.

Street outreach worker, Wilma, is out and about identifying working children in the markets and promoting CENIT’s programme. This summer CENIT ran a summer camp for working children. 120 children took part receiving a healthy lunch and participating in various activities such as sports and arts and crafts. They even enjoyed a group outing to the park. Some of these children are already enrolled in the street outreach programme but staff and volunteers were able to identify many more working children and talk to their parents about signing them up.

They had a wonderful surprise at CENIT recently, when one of their former students returned for a visit. Abel was at CENIT in 2002 and returned in the hopes of tracking down the volunteers and staff that helped him back then. He talked about his fond memories of CENIT and was overjoyed to reconnect with project coordinator Martha. Abel graduated from high school and university and now works for a TV cable company. As one student said, “way to go, Abel! Thank you for stopping by, it really brightened our week!”

Thanks to you, CENIT’s street outreach programme will continue in 2019. If you’d like to help secure the future of the programme beyond next year, please consider setting up a regular donation… just £5 per month makes a big difference.
