HOW CAN I HELP?
You can support the work of New Community Kibera by giving financially towards the charity and its costs. One-off donations are very much appreciated, but regular giving (even of a smaller amount) is even better, as it allows the charity to more accurately plan resources.
Our aim is to invest in projects that are self-sustainable and we aim to keep costs to a minimum. If you would like to support the project financially, please use our Donate button (in partnership with Living Waters Social Enterprises charity), or email us about regular giving.
Follow and support us on social media to help us increase our profile. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for the latest blogs and events, to keep up with not only what we're doing but get a flavour of what's happening in the wider Kibera community.
About twice a year, a team of volunteers from the UK goes out to Kibera for approximately a week. If you have transferable skills in areas such as healthcare, education, sport (especially football), micro-finance and businesses, the charity may be able to use your skills, even if it isn’t the planned focus of the trip.
Are you an organisation that would like to support our self sustaining projects in Kibera? Perhaps you're a business that would love to provide help to small businesses in Kibera, either financially or by sending volunteers? We'd love to hear from you.
A typical trip
Frequency: Normally planned for twice a year from the UK.
Length: Usually seven to eight days.
Cost: In the region of £1,000 (includes flights, visas, secure accommodation, transport and meals). Volunteers need to cover this cost themselves.
Skills: The charity is particularly looking for people with transferable skills in areas such as healthcare, education, sport (especially football), micro-finance and businesses. It is also important to have the ability to engage with people, to be very flexible under sometimes challenging conditions, and to be able to work as a team. A sense of humour is compulsory.
Safety: We take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously and therefore references will be needed and possibly a DBS may be required.
Interested? If you think that you are interested and would like to find out more and when the next trip is, please email Dave Boniface at firstname.lastname@example.org. This won’t commit you to anything at this point; it’s just the start of a conversation.
