CRK shortlisted in GlobalGiving 2017 Photo Contest
By Su Corcoran - Fundraiser, Child Rescue Kenya
Street style acrobatics
2017 is going so quickly that we can't believe that it is almost the end of May. The children at Liyavo are well into the swing of the school term and those at Birunda are getting to grips with their non-formal catch up classes - and a number of children are preparing for the journey home. Our teachers and social workers have been working hard to support the extra children we have staying at the centres as a result of the drought and last month's police round up of the children living in the streets.
Advocating for street children and telling others about our work is key to ensuring that we can support the children we work with in Kitale. In the last year we have been very lucky to have visited by a photo jouralist from Nairobi who has been spending time with the children living on the streets and taking pictures of their lives. Sofia Jern is hoping to raise awareness of the situation with her images and I have included a link below to a photo essay that she put together about the children. Her images are a welcome addition to our media profile.
One of Sofia's pictures, shown above, has been shortlisted by Global Giving for their 2017 Photo contest and I would like to ask a small favour of you. To win the contest we need to collect as many votes as possible. Please could you click on the link below and vote for the image. This takes only a few minutes and could mean that CRK wins $1000. The voting is now open and will close on Friday May 26th at 12pm EDT (4pm UK time).
I would also be grateful if you could share the link with your friends and family and on social media. It is a great opportunity for CRK to promote the work that we do with street children and youth. It is also a great picture - don't you agree?
Thank you all again for help and support of Child Rescue Kenya's work!
