Whoever you are. Whatever you have. You can help.
Here are a few ideas:
Take the Challenge
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in Kibera? Have you thought about the positive aspects of living in a slum? Take the 26 Day Challenge or do Kibera for a Day, you will get a glimpse of the joys and challenges faced by those living in a slum. Take the challenge, then encourage others to do the same by sharing your activity on Facebook and Twitter.
Kick for Kibera
Channel the spirit of more than 5,000 young soccer players in CFK’s Sports Association. Host a soccer clinic in your town as a fundraiser for CFK (like UNC Women’s Soccer did). Learn more about our annual Kick for Kibera clinic.
Take a Bag
Prohibitively high shipping costs and unpredictable customs fees make shipping much needed donated supplies such as sports equipment, feminine sanitary pads and books very difficult. If you or someone you know is traveling to Nairobi and can carry some donated supplies, please contact us.
Social Network for Kibera
Join Campus for Kibera
Campus for Kibera provides students at UNC a rare opportunity to partner with an internationally recognized, participatory development organization and connect personally with those taking part in change on the ground. Find out how you can get involved. Not a UNC student? Start Campus for Kibera on your campus – ask us how.
Have a Wedding or Birthday for Kibera
In lieu of birthday and wedding presents that may end up just sitting on your shelf, consider giving up your gifts in exchange for donations to CFK. For an example of how this can be done, visit Melania & Michael’s recent wedding gift registry page.
