Detailing the milestones you've helped create
Thanks to your dontations St Margaret Life's Hope is now a registered UK charity. The benefits of this include:
The ability to accept monthly donations
Registration allows provision for this and enable better future planning through regular monthly donations.
Allows us to expand our projects & reach in Lamu
With UK registration comes the opportunity for regular funding allowing us to better plan and expand our support network for the people we help.
Better provision for all
Our projects are a 24 hour, 7 day a week commitment — food, clothing, medicine, through to education for young and old. Regular funding will improve the support we offer.
Enhance our credibility
We understand that credibility and transparency are an important part of running a charity, our registration enhances and underpins our dedication and commitment.
If water is life then sanitation is dignity and it is this aspect which is absent throughout Lamu. Poor sanitary conditions are aggravated through lack of planning with only the most basic ad-hoc facilities that characterise most Kenyan fringe communities available.
The benefits of adequate toilets for those under our care are safer environments that will influence children’s wellbeing. This coupled with a proper hygiene education in the classroom will help.
Benefits to our community
• Enhancing effective learning
• Attracting enrolment in school
• Sustaining a reduced burden of disease among locals
Quotes for tender
Tenders from local builders to build two long drop toilets and washing facilities have been received. On completion they will provide hygienic living conditions for those under our care.
We'd love to hear from you, whether its regarding a donation, words of encouragement or just to say hello.
