Love Your Neighbour
Love your Neighbour is a Community Based Organisation which has been working in Kenya since 2010. In these years we've opened a Pre-School and started a sponsorship programme (pictured on the right) in Kibera slum; helped homeless women to leave the streets and begin a new life for themselves and taught unemployed women how to bake & run a small business so that they can make an income for their families. We now want to make a new move and buy land in Kilifi county where we can start new projects to help more people. Our goal is to buy a 2.7-acre piece of land, move there and begin projects which will empower the surrounding community. The two first projects we will begin are:
- An empowerment centre for women where they will learn about business and develop practical skills which they will be able to use to provide for themselves and their families.
- A sports & mentorship programme for young men and teenagers.
Once we are there we'll also learn more about the specific needs of the surrounding communities and will want to do more to help. We will begin new projects to empower the community in response to the needs we see.
For us to begin these projects, we need a place for them! You’re joining us right at the beginning of this journey and our first step is buy the land (pictured below). We’ve already put a deposit of £6,000 to secure the land but now we have the huge task of raising the other £15,000 and would like to do that before we begin to build on it.
Your donation to us is not only for land but it’s for a place where dreams for change will be planted and given room to flourish & grow.
