Dear friends and supporters of Footprints, please take time to read Jamie’s story and possibly sponsor him and John Taylor’s Art Teacher, Mrs Evans, as they undertake a sky dive in memory of a wonderful young lady. Holly Brown 🦋.
All monies raised go directly to Footprints Orphanage and help to sustain the fantastic work Mana Kerry and our footprints team do. We also try to provide the children with opportunities and activities they could only have dreamed of in the Holly Brown Learning for Life Zone. #BeMoreHolly 👣
Another proud day for Footprints as Mutua and Hassan begin their first day in Kenya National High School.
They have worked so hard and faced so many challenges to get into these schools. Six years ago Mutua nearly died after being struck down with complicated malaria, but today, both their dreams came true and their future looks promising. Once again it’s thanks to the wonderful continued support you are all giving to 👣 and our children.
7 years ago Uchi (Rachel) had little hope in her young life,her mother had died, her father seriously ill and she was riddled with ‘jiggers’ unable to walk, then Footprints came into her life and changed all of that ! Today was not only her proudest day but Patrick and mine as she was admitted into a wonderful county high school in Voi county . Together Footprints has given Uchi the hope for a better future she only dreamed of. Through all the unimaginable challenges we go thru for these children, today we saw our vision come to life😍thank you to everyone who helps us make these life changes possible xx
After the traditional story ‘a night before Christmas’ with Mama Kerry the Footprints children went to bed wondering if Santa would come to them this year ??? Thank you to everyone who made it possible for Santa to visit Footprints especially Gary and Leanne Earp ! Their newly red stockings were filled with apples sweets and goodies their faces say it All Asante Sana !!
On behalf of Footprints and our children Patrick and I send warm Christmas greetings to all our fb friends and family I’m sure our Christmas will be very different to yours ! But we’re together in our hearts as we say once again thank you for making this year a success for Footprints and our children.
Today we celebrated the Baptism of Adam and Gift
Yesterday we joined the Rotary club of Diani on their annual charity Water Run and Friday the children said thank you to the Footprints aunties and uncles for their kindness and hard work over the year
Merry Christmas from Us All
So after glitz and glamor and the success of the Fp Charity Ball we were soon faced with harsh reality of what we do !! Wambua and Kolonzo were left at our doorstep by the police straight from the courts after their parents neglected them and subsequently abandoned them in August fending for themselves, since that time going house to house looking for food , they were brought to us by the police having nowhere for them to be taken other than a childrens remand/correction centre . A warrant had been issued for the parents arrest. They were hungry scared and riddled with ‘jiggers’. But what a difference a week makes at Footprints
Thank you to everyone for making this happen for these children !
Why not come along and get in the festive spirit with The Burton Big Band. This wonderful event will be held at St. Mary’s Church, Stretton and Is in aid of Footprints. Thank you so much for all the continued support xx
Patrick and I are absolutely overwhelmed by the amazing generosity kindness and words of encouragement at Footprints 10th Annual Charity Ball on Saturday, this fundraising event means so much to the charity and in particular the future of our children. 22k was raised during the evening a staggering and record breaking amount for this event . Massive congratulations and sincere thanks especially to our Uk fundraising team who without a doubt made the event the success it was. We are proud and humbled that so many family friends and sponsors continue to belief in our vision and the work that we continuously do to make a difference the children’s lives in East Africa Asante Sana
Mama Kerry and Uncle Patrick xx
