Let’s get water for an incredible orphanage!

Suluhisho Children’s Village needs your help…. Let’s give them the gift of a clean water supply for the new year!

Suluhisho is an orphanage and Montessori school in Kenya, Africa for children who have come from the most tragic, desperate and heart-breaking circumstances.

The school was started by Australian woman, Jacinta Ojwang, who visited Kenya 12 years ago and was profoundly affected by the poverty and deprivation she saw there. Upon her return to Australian, Jacinta began fundraising immediately, and returned to Kenya to build and run the orphanage, school and permaculture farm there… making a huge difference to so many lives.

Now Suluhisho needs our help… due to extreme ongoing drought, Suluhisho does not have a reliable, safe source of running water.

Currently staff have to go fetch make at least 12 trips to the water source on a daily basis, which is a number of kilometres away… taking much needed time away from taking care of our beautiful children, and not providing them with the safe, healthy water they need to thrive and grow.

We require $5,000 to dig our bore hole so we will have access to fresh water to use for all our children.

With increasing numbers of children from desperate impoverished circumstances needing support, Suluhisho remains committed to bring happiness and a chance at a brighter future for the Kenyan children.

Please help us by giving them the gift of fresh water this Christmas.

Any funds that go over the $5000 will continue to support the children's home, school fees and our beautiful Montessori preschool.

We can't thank you enough.

This is the most incredible way to kick off 2017.

I never imagined this could happen.

Water pathogens are a huge health problem in Kenya, as the people have been left unprotected against regular epidemics such as cholera, typhoid and parasitic worms. The rate of exposure is extremely high because the water is not only contaminated where water is collected but the containers are almost always second-hand, often previously used for oil, fertiliser or house hold waste.
43% of rural Kenya lack access to water
70% of rural Kenya lack safe sanitation

Through donating you can provide a life-saving clean water source to the people who need it most. 100% of your contribution will fund the completion of our bore hole at Suluhisho.

I was explaining to Miss 6 about how my friend ran a school and an orphanage and they had no clean water close by. She wanted to help and had 50 cents left in her 'sharing' compartmemt of her money box. I will be honest, she did then try and bargain with me so 20 cents of that could go towards some hair thing she'd seen on tv this morning... But when i asked her if clean water was more important she (still slightly) reluctantly handed over her 50 cents... So here it is... And a little more from mum....
