Fundraising

We are are indebted to the individuals, charities and corporate organisations who every year support our projects with donations and fundraising activities. Without this generosity and belief in what P.A.P. is doing we would be unable to help the thousands of people in need in Kenya. There are so many we could not possible name them all but here are a couple of special mentions

Thankyou to the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia, since Laura started her regular trips to Kenya they have consistently given their support – both financial and encouragement.

Thankyou to the individuals who have sponsored over a number of years our children in the Kisii Childrens Home. We have three children there now and they are all doing incredibly well thanks to PAP being able to pay for their places in the childrens home, and their education.

New

Did you know: If you shop on Amazon you can now use amazon smile instead – everything is the same – products, prices, delivery etc but you can choose a favourite charity. Amazon then donates 0.5% of the purchase price to the charity. PATCH WORKING AGAINST POVERTY is now a registered smile charity and you can select it as you default amazon smile charity. https://smile.amazon.co.uk.
