Have a very merry challenge!


Dear friend,

Last month we presented you with our brand new websites. Unfortunately, a technical error prevented you from actually seeing the websites. For that we apologize. Once again, we would like to invite you to visit our website. A little tip: check our beautiful infographic, which tells the Meet Kate story in a nutshell. 
But, there is more! November has been a very productive month in Ghana, The Netherlands and the UK! Read all about our UK-activities in this month's newsletter. 

Wishing you warmth and happiness!

Presidents of Meet Kate UK and The Netherlands


Tis the season to be jolly, and at Meet Kate, we are overflowing with joy this season! This summer, a Global Giving UK representative came to Ghana to evaluate our projects and we embarked on what was to become a beautiful partnership. Global Giving UK is an online fundraising platform that works with small not-for-profit organizations to raise money for their projects. To make sure that the charities they invest in are motivated, they set us a challenge: Raise £2000 in 30 days. Completing the challenge will give us access to one of the biggest online-fundraising platforms out there, training, big corporate partnerships and so much more! This challenge has given our team the new burst of energy we needed to propel us from raising awareness into fundraising.
Our followers have overwhelmed us with their support and it warms my heart to see that we are really beginning to build a Meet Kate family in the UK too! Do you want to help us reach our target of £2000 by the 23rd of December? Click here!



Four medical students did something special for us last month. They decided that they were going to challenge themselves to spend £1 a day on food, for 5 days in solidarity with the 2.4 billion people worldwide who are living in poverty. They have raised £800 and counting for Meet Kate. We are thankful that they are raising awareness of an important global issue as well as the positive message of Africa that Meet Kate wants to show the world.
Have you got any ideas of something fun or challenging that you can do to raise money for us? We would love to hear from you. Get in touch:



Any occasion is an excuse for a party, so it was no surprise when everyone came out in their best Halloween outfit for Meet Kate night! If you look closely, you will see that they are wearing Meet Kate bracelets on their wrists. These were handmade by a craftsman in Ghana and were used as tickets to enter the club. Everyone loved having a little piece of Ghana to keep with them forever and all proceeds from the night, went to Meet Kate! Thank you to Medsoc for organizing it.
