Special Appeal Donate page Sponsor page

Kanyawegi UK has an urgent need to secure some more long term supporters and also some immediate cash funds to help support the lovely orphans under the care of the Emmanuel Home.

Latest Accounts

Emmanuel Home offers support to around 31 orphans, providing food, shelter & education. Ages range from 6 to those in their early 20’s who are just approaching the end of their college and university courses.

A boost in funds is required to meet school / college / university fees and expenses for the start of the new academic year in late August 2017.  Can you help?

For various reasons, the overall number of regular donors has diminished and therefore regular monthly giving is down and this also has had a negative effect on the amount of Gift Aid that we can reclaim from the UK government.

There is also the post June 2016 Brexit impact on exchange rates which has seen us getting as much as 18% less Kenyan Shillings for every £1 when compared to early 2016.

Also, the high rate of inflation (11.48% for the 12 months to April 2017), mainly attributable to the increase in basic food & drink prices because of crop failures through lack of rain & draught conditions.
