An opportunity to help

Children’s Home Flomina

Sometimes an opportunity to help others and make a difference just shows up on your path. This happened when we visited Children’s Home Flomina in Nairobi where some of our local staff volunteer on weekends. Our organization decided to embrace the opportunity to support and help these children in need and give them a chance to a better life.

Flomina fosters more than 65 abandoned and orphaned children giving them protection and help to create a better life. They want them to become self-reliable by providing parental care, access to basic needs and good education. Every child deserves the chance to develop and build his or her own future.

"These children fully depend on the help of others. Knowing that we can help and make a difference, we took action to offer them a chance for a better future," Gabrielle Dullaart - Global Communications Manager.

We want to help contribute in any way we can, with expertise, funds and other solutions, to create a place where these vulnerable children get the opportunity they deserve. Education is the key to success, only then they can build a better life for themselves.

Raptim has committed to a term of three years to sponsor Children’s Home Flomina. We can enable long term structural support for continuous expenses such as food, housing and schooling. The ambition of Flomina is to become self-supporting within the next 5 years. They have a clear vision of what they want to achieve but need access to funding to support their projects and creative solutions to achieve this goal.

All of our colleagues from different parts of the world are contributing to this project with several initiatives.

We raise funds through crowdfunding (generosity.com) and focus on solving one issue at a time.

Phase 1 is dedicated to provide and improve basis needs

  • Provide healthy nutritious food (3 meals a day)
  • Expand dormitories (currently 3 children share one bed)
  • Improve personal hygiene (toilets and washrooms)
  • Contribute to school fees (to ensure that all children have access to education)
  • Help provide a new kitchen with gas stoves, to prevent cooking on open fire (inefficient, unhealthy, expensive)

 

Phase 2 is dedicated to help them become self-supporting
