RHYCO Sports Day! - GIVE NOW

On Wednesday, March 13th, the team at RHYCO are holding a sports day for all the children at the centre, the kids are very excited; they have been very busy practicing their jumping! On the day, they will be taking part in lots of different activities to have fun and raise funds for the drop in centre where they currently get an education and care.

We’re excited too, so we have decided to team up with our partners at International Needs UK to try and help them raise $3,500 (this is enough to cover 2 months of all of RHYCO's running costs!).

Will you sponsor their sports and activities for the day and help us reach our target?

"So many reasons spring to mind when I am asked why I feel so passionate about supporting this team. They are without a doubt the most inspirational, selfless and devoted group of people I have ever had the privilege to meet. "

• Liz Turnbull, International Needs supporter and IN Family member.

More about RHYCO:

Kawangware is a slum settlement with a population of over 130,000, located to the west of Nairobi. Due to poverty and family hardship, many children end up leaving their families and living on the streets in groups known as ‘street families’.

RHYCO work to support children living on the streets in Kawangware slum. The RHYCO drop-in centre provides support and care for children between ages 5 and 10 and provides basic education, counselling and therapy, learning literacy and constructive play. This is also a safe place for children to play with one another, and to receive food, love, and encouragement.

With the support of the RHYCO team and a sponsor, when they are ready, children are supported to transition into a local school to ensure they have the education they need to start the journey out of poverty.

Through the program, the RHYCO team provides real hope for these children to have a better future.
