Thank you for helping kids in Kibera

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

In Kibera, an extremely poor suburb of Nairobi, Kenya, more than 1 million people—including children—live without access to basic resources like food, electricity, healthcare, and education. Kids who are able to go to school are often crammed into crowded, under-resourced classrooms where there are too few teachers to meet every child’s needs.

Our March Project of the Month, Turning Point Trust, is working to change this reality. 

At their schools, just 25 pupils share spacious classrooms so that everyone recieves individualized attention. Even better, their daily meal program ensures that children not only attend every day but also have the energy they need to succeed. 

Turning Point Trust’s Fundraising and Communications Manager Emily shared that funds from the Project of the Month Club will support nearly 200 students by covering school fees, teacher training, and more.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity!

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
