A picture is worth a thousand words, and perhaps a film is even better. Let Dorsen and Richard show you around their home at Kimbilio and tell you all about how their lives are being transformed into a future filled with hope. Click on the link to YouTube below and find out more.
In the film, we also meet Jean Bosco Tshiswaka, Director of Kimbilio. We are so thankful for Jean Bosco and his wonderful team at Kimbilio. They work tirelessly for the wellbeing of so many children in Lubumbashi. Next year, for our 10th Anniversary, we hope to continue to grow in meeting the needs of street-connected children. Our hope is to complete the first stage of our primary school in the grounds of Maison Kimbilio. We aim to make it a flagship school, well known for the care and attention in helping each child achieve their potential where stigmatized street-connected children will be educated alongside local children. For more info about this please visit our GlobalGiving page here.
So for this #GivingTuesday and #YearEndCampaign with GlobalGiving, we are asking our supporters to commit to sharing our stories of Kimbilio with a friend or a colleague that is interested in supporting a small grassroots charity. Your continued support and enthusiasm are so important to us.
For these campaigns we will be focusing on our school project so if you are able to give at this time of year, please consider Congo Children Trust especially on #GivingTuesday which is the 27th November. On this day all donations will be matched with an Incentive Fund. The Incentive Fund will be distributed to participants proportionally based on final fundraising totals.
And if you regularly give one off to Congo Children Trust, why not explore recurring giving each month? During the Year End Campaign, new recurring donations up to $200 per donor per project started during the campaign will get an additional 100% match from GlobalGiving on the initial donation as long as it remains active for at least four consecutive payments.
Full terms and conditions for all of these ways to give can be found on the GlobalGiving website. Giving Tuesday begins on 27th November and the Year End Campaign continues from 28th November to the 31st December 2018.
Thank you again for your continued support and may we take this opportunity to be one of the first to wish you Happy Holidays and a Peaceful New Year.
