ACCELERATOR CAMPAIGN 2017

From September 11 to 29 we are taking part in the GlobalGiving Accelerator Campaign. We need to raise at least US$5000 on their crowdfunding platform, the prize for success being a permanent place on their site.

Updated 22/09: We have achieved our initial goals, thank you to all our donors. Thanks to your generosity our new goal is now $15,000.

GlobalGiving are the worlds largest global crowdfunding site and the benefits of joining include exposure to their corporate donors, education programs and one more avenue to promote our projects and introduce more people to our work.

All the funds raised during the campaign go directly into our projects and are used to bring education, hope and joy into the lives of children living in extreme poverty.

ACTION THIS DAY is a not-for profit organisation, established in 2009, with the aim of helping extremely disadvantaged children from Kenya break the cycle of poverty through education. We also offer orphan and health care, and assist the children’s all round development through life skills programs and vocational training.

We employ Kenyans to work on our projects and interact closely with the local community to ensure our projects have local support and are therefore required and sustainable.

Everyone who helps the charity does so in an entirely voluntary capacity and by not tolerating overheads we are able to guarantee that we spend 100% of donations on the project work in Kenya.

Follow our story, told by our founder, teachers, students, volunteers and supporters. Learn how your donations help change the lives of extremely disadvantaged children.

OUR PROJECTS

The Kookaburra Community School was established in 2010 and provides free primary school education for up to 130 children. We follow the Kenyan 8-4-4 system and are registered with the Ministry of Education.

Kookaburra House provides emergency accommodation to families and students who require it on a temporary or long term basis. We have six rooms available and they are always occupied.

Students who pass the primary school certificate exam (KCPE), and have shown a commitment to study and behaviour during their time at Kookaburra, are offered a place on the Graduate Program to sponsor them through secondary school.

Not all students excel in their academic studies and jobs are not in over supply either, so we offer sponsorship in vocational courses to our students who do not qualify for the Graduate Program but have talents in other areas or have shown a willingness to learn.
