Dear our donors,

We wante to take this opportunity to let you know that due to donations we havebeen able to start building our fence for Scotty's Rescue Centre! We are so excited for this to be happening!!

Although this fantastic news we still have a really long way to go to have the whole centre built, but it is a start and we are very thankful and grateful to each and everyone of who has donated to make this possible.  To save money our co-founder Johnson has been working daily digging holes, placing the posts and mixing the cement along with our crew we have hired.

Covid has made life even harder for the women, babies and children living on the streets, they don't get the medical attention they need and deserve an often just end up suffering on the street. This is what we would like to be able to help change!

Jambo!

We will soon be starting construction on Scotty's Rescue Centre.  We have been given all of the money required to build our water well which will makes us self sustainable.  In order to keep our water well safe and be able to sell the water, which we can then use the money from the sales towards Scotty's, we are going to be building a fence around the land.

We haev also been very busy with the Kenyan government getting approvals for the water well and our drawings/blueprints from the architect.  These drawings I am attaching here are our dream and plans for Scotty's Rescue Centre.  

We are very excited to be moving forward with this project even if it is slow going, we know that one day with all of your continued support and encouragement we will get there.

Thank you over and over again for the belief in our cause to help have a safe place for the women and their babies and the children living on the streets!

We could not do this without you all!

Hello to all of our followers and donators!

Since we purchased the land for Scotty’s Rescue Centre we have been very busy getting things organized to start construction.

Not only are we planning on building Scotty’s Rescue Centre but we are also planning on making it self sustainable by drilling a well for water that we will then be able to sell to the local community.  We are also planning on having a vegetable garden for fresh vegetables daily as well as cows, goats and chickens, we really want these children to be able to succeed in their life and by giving them the opportunities to grow and learn from natural resources we think we will achieve this goal.

We wanted to let you all know that we will be updating and changing the project to reflect the land purchase as well as updates on how many rooms we have fully funded. At this time we have our library and nursery fully funded, we have received a wonderful donation of a container to be shipped from Canada to Kenya and that container will serve 2 purposes.  Not only will it be bringing us much needed items from Canada it will also serve as our office/staff room at Scotty’s Rescue Centre!

Thank you for your support and for your belief in all of us at Because ALL Children Matter, because of you all we are going to be able to help so many more children get off the streets in Kenya.

Attached are photo's of the women, babies and children you are all helping us to help!

Hello to all of our followers and donators!

We wanted to share this exciting update with you all!  We have been able to purchase one acre of land thanks to all of your generous donations.  We are very excited for this to be becoming a reality for the children living on the streets of Kenya. 

Not only are we planning on building Scotty’s Rescue Centre but we are also planning on making it self sustainable by drilling a well for water that we will then be able to sell to the local community.  We are also planning on having a vegetable garden for fresh vegetables daily as well as cows, goats and chickens, we really want these children to be able to succeed in their life and by giving them the opportunities to grow and learn from natural resources we think we will achieve this goal.

We wanted to let you all know that we will be updating and changing our project to reflect the purchase of the land.  We also have a matching campaign coming up September 14 - 18th of this year, all donations up to and including $50.00 US during this time frame will be matched by 50% by GlobalGiving.

Thank you for your support and for your belief in all of us at Because ALL Children Matter, because of you all we are going to be able to help so many more children get off the streets in Kenya.

Hello,

Thank you to everyone who has donated and continues to donate to help get the children off the streets of Nairobi, Kenya.  COVID-19 has restricted us but not stopped us!

Due to the fact that our project is to purchase land for a shelter/rescue centre and we have yet to raise enough funds to be able to do that, I wanted to take this opportunity to show you what we have been doing in Kenya.  

Attached are just a few photo's of our Street Feeding Program.  On this program we cook the food at home and then bring it to the children, women, babies and familes living on the streets.  We have also been lucky enough to be able to purchase sanitary pads, diapers and blankets for 25 women and babies living on the street.  Through donations we have been able to buy a cart/trolley for 8 of the street boys, with this cart they collect garbage and then sort through the garbage and sell the plastics and bottles.  In doing this they have now become self sustainable and are all living in shared houses, they share the money they earn everyday and earn enough to pay their rent and buy food.  

The photo below of Ben and Brian are just 2 out of the 5 street boys we have been able to get off the street, they are now living in a childrens home and have sponsors to go to school.  We find and help these boys when we are doing our street feedings, by doing this we are helping more and more children everyday.
