What’s in a name? – “Kenya 2020”
Kenya 2020 was established as a charitable organisation, following the experiences of teachers and students that had visited Kenya and been involved in community development projects in the Ndhiwa District since 2007.The name Kenya 2020 came from the desire to set clear, time-constrained goals of what should be achieved in the 10 years leading up to 2020. Projects are chosen that will leave behind lasting benefits even if direct support eventually ceases.Work is monitored with on-going and annual reviews, but a major review in 2020 will assess the effectiveness of the work during the period 2011-20 and establish the new priorities for further projects – Kenya 2030???
How much of my donation will reach Kenya?
All of it!! All the money you donate is spent in Kenya. All our ‘workers’ in the UK are volunteers. Any unavoidable costs (eg annual audit for the Charities’ Commission) is paid out of the Giftaid we claim back from the tax paid on donations. There are no intermediary people or organisations that charge fees so every penny you donate is spent on the development projects in Kenya!
