WALK WITH KUMBATIO 2022
For the past 12 years, Kumbatio has provided shelter, education and a place of belonging for the children of Thika. We strongly believe that every child deserves a place they call home and in which they feel safe. Our goal is to create a better future for these children than the future they would have had without our help. Education plays a crucial role in solving inequality. By providing the right forms of education and by teaching several skills, families learn how to become self-sufficient in the world of today. We work together with a team in Kenya consisting of a social worker and a psychologist. Here, the focus lies on providing the children and their families with a strong basis so the children can eventually return back to their families.
THE KIOTA DREAM
Each day we get one step closer to reaching our long-awaited dream: The Kiota Dream. In 2021 we bought our own piece of land where we build a safe community, family houses and a training center. This provides our staff and our children with all that is needed to fully focus on working, living and education.
In Walk with Kumbatio 3.0, we challenge participants to virtually walk (or run, bike, you name it!) with us to Thika, Kenya. The distance on land is approximately 10.000 km.
In previous editions we have seen that everything is possible when working towards a shared passion. Together with many enthusiastic participants, we raised € 27.774,- in 2021. This year, we dare to aim even higher: the goal is to reach € 40.000,-, enough to build a community training center on site.
