Food For Tang'neduk

Project 2013-10-31 21:00:00 +1300

*** this is a small weekly pledge for one year - your pledge will be repeated weekly for 52 weeks***


we are working towards travelling to western Kenya, to help build and develop the orphanage of Tang'neduk. this is a long-term project which we wish to be done in a caring and holistic manner, so we are putting our efforts into gaining more skills and experience, so we may offer meaningful value to the children who live there. 


we recently had news that the orphanage is struggling to feed the children, and have been funding the food ourselves for the past few weeks. it will take us a little while time before we have enough skills and experience to offer the children there, and in the meantime, they are at risk of starving.


here you can see them eating food we have paid for - our contributions have helped greatly, though we cannot afford to continue them. we are asking you to contribute weekly, for one year, to the costs of the children's food

this pledge is for a small weekly amount [ $230nzd is enough to feed the 86 children healthy food for one week ], to which you may contribute $5, $7, $11, $19.. any amount you can spare each week to help feed so many young lives..

if the pledge is successful, you will be given New Zealand bank account details, into which you can set up a weekly automatic payment for your pledge, or deposit a lump sum for your contribution [ 52 x your pledge ].

at the conclusion of the year long pledge, we plan to be in Kenya, at Tang'neduk, being engaged and helping in the development of the amazing work they are already doing there.


we really hope you are able to join us in this journey of education, small-scale giving, and shared empowerment..

we met in the Netherlands whilst both living and working there, before moving to Austria to study. this is where the project began - in an architecture class we took together,designing a school in Africa. during the project we began to feel that it had too much potential to help people to stay on paper, so we are working towards developing our work into a valuable reality.

Hello all,

 

We would like to thank everyone who has made good on their pledge and has set up an automatic payment, or provided a lump sum.. so far we have been able to pay for two weeks of food, and are building up to a third week!

 

the people of Tang'neduk are so appreciative of your efforts, and were so happy that we were able to feed the children over the new year - so good to hear.

 

To anyone else who has yet to set up their paymentys, please make this happen - those who have done it already are making a huge difference, and you can help immensely.

 

The account details are  - 03 0497 0314215 029 / A J Holwell / westpac - and my email is [email protected] for further information.

 

We hope you have had a wonderful chrristmas and new year, trust that there were moments of being well fed, and wish to keep sharing these moments with others who might not have access to such abundance.

 

All the best,

agnieszka and ash
