A much needed van for our Rafikis...

By Rafiki Mwema

Life with 70 children and 44 staff is really hectic and crazy at the best of times. Factor in that we have 16 children out at different schools, 12 boys in college or vocational courses, 104 children in outreach plus court and hospital visits on a daily basis - you can begin to see just how hectic life can be!

We have 3 vehicles (2 of which are very battered and old!) but that simply doesn't cover our daily needs. Many of our girls are too vulnerable to travel by public transport; the outreach team do a great job of keeping family connections going PLUS we have two amazing young men who are training to be tour guides - so we need a new, multi purpose van. (see example below) It needs to be big enough to take groups of children, sturdy enough to cope with the pressures of Kenyan roads...  

Since Anne Marie was sick in Kenya on our recent visit and we had 2 emergency trips to hospital, it reiterated the HUGE need we have for a better vehicle.  Please, if you can help us with this campaign we would be so grateful.
