Our end of year appeal is fast approaching an end, only 35 days until Christmas. While we wrap up the year, life for many street children of the world is no different. There is no time like the present to make a direct impact in the life of those children.
Give the gift of hope so they can have the ability to look into the future, allowing them to dream about their life to be, a career and giving them the means to make their dreams a reality.
BTO’s partner program in Kenya, Alfajiri instills hope for a better future. Kids, who used to live on the street like Andrew, now are owners of their own business and are self reliant. We believe that it changes the view of the community to see the lives of those children transformed. You would agree that no child should worry about surviving but they should be looking forward to their future.
While hope is not a tangible gift, you can see it in the eyes and the smiles of the kids you will directly impact with a gift this Christmas. Remember that our aim is to build a drop in centre, just like we did, with resounding success, in Ethiopia, and implement an outreach program to provide a safe haven for the kids, away from a life on the streets.
$35,000 is an ambitious fundraising effort but together we can help even more children and give them hope for a bright future.
We need your help!
Don’t forget the world’s most vulnerable children this Christmas, when the spirit of giving is at the forefront of your minds.Your gift, no matter how small, to these children this festive season may, literally, be the gift of life.
