Screenshot 2015-01-18 22.17.46


How Can I Help?

When people see the good their money does, they keep on donating.

  1. The link to subscribe for a social postcard from Kenya is HERE – they are to post on instagram, facebook, twitter and/or blogs, or whatever social media you see fit, on Monday 26th January. There will also be more info on the HERE on Sunday evening.
  2. Look out for more updates while I am away and hopefully some video and photos from projects we visit and behind the scenes, please, please share them.
  3. Join us with @Britmums at 1pm, Monday 19th January on a hangout to discuss the trip.

What would you ask?

I am being paired up with a mother when I am visiting one the projects which supports mothers with HIV, I would love your help, what questions would you ask? If you have any questions about the street children’s project too, please leave them in the comments.

I will be travelling with Annie and Tanya, read their posts too.

    Penny you rock! You work so hard and can still fit in this massively important trip. Good luck on your travels and thank you for telling the world about what’s happening there. I’ve signed up for a postcard.

    I think I’d like to ask the mothers what their biggest worry is, and how they handle that – how do they get through each day with hope?
