Where are funds most needed?

At present, our greatest needs for stage 1 development are to

  1. secure and partition the land with a fencing project ($10 000)
  2. fund building and construction costs for our first children’s home ($75 000)
  3. purchase a vehicle ($25 000)
  4. clear the land and plant crops for sustainability ($2000)
  5. complete our water project

The water bore, water tower, and solar pump have already been funded through the generous donations from the public and Gladstone Rotary, but the project is still underway. This water project has given us access to fresh water, which is priceless, so we thank everyone for their ongoing support.

Once our first children’s home is built we will be able to house our first group of orphans and really begin to make a difference. Once this facility is in place the cost of caring for these children will be funded by their sponsors—you can make a commitment to sponsor our future children by filling out the form on our website at http://umojahome.com/kenya/sponsor-a-child/

A vehicle is also a priority for us as the van will be used to carry construction materials, collect and transport children, and provide safari tours for tourists to bring in additional funds.

When you make an online donation from our website you have the choice of choosing one of these specific projects or selecting wherever funds are most needed. Any other donations that we receive via direct debit, cash, or cheque will fund these priorities as required. Please note, that by giving to Katie’s Kilimanjaro Climb you will also be funding stage 1 projects; however, it will show that your donation is in direct support of her appeal.

Packaged donations are also available if you would like to fund a specific project and receive visual recognition for your donation (for example your business name on the signage or the side of the bus). Visit http://umojahome.com/kenya/packaged-donations/ for more information.

Any donation, no matter how big or small, will help us work towards providing an alternative to child abandonment. Help us raise the roof for Umoja today.
