We rely on the generosity of our donors to continue our work in Kenya. Please consider supporting us in whatever way you can.
Even relatively small donations go a long way. Because we have practically no administrative costs we can guarantee your money will be spent where it is needed most. And because we are a very small charity we can accommodate any requests or wishes you may have for your donation.
We also welcome donations by standing order, which allows you to donate a set amount regularly, as well as to offer a one-off donation.
If you wish to donate by Payroll Giving ('Give As You Earn') or through a legacy, or you want to discuss your donation with us, please contact us and we will be very happy indeed to help.
If you're getting rid of your car, why not donate it to who will sell it for you, for free, and donate some of the profit to us?
Looking for insurance? Why not insure with - HSK will receive 6% of your premium as a donation.
We welcome donations in kind where practicable and cost-effective. We particularly welcome computer equipment, as we are looking to build up our schools' IT facilities. Several UK schools and businesses have already donated out-of-date stock which we have helped them transport to Kenya. If you have any such stocks, in whatever quantities, please contact us; we would be glad to hear from you.
Unfortunately we are not able to transport books (including textbooks) to Kenya, because of their weight and size, and because the Kenyan curriculum changes very frequently. If you have books to donate, please consider BookAid International instead.
As a small charity we really rely on fundraising by volunteers. Past fundraising initiatives have provided for new classrooms, sport equipment and bursaries.
In 2009 a team of cyclists led by HSK trustee Peter King cycled unsupported from the UK to Kenya to raise funds for Kekopey Secondary School, in the longest known bicycle rally of its type.
We have put together some advice for fundraisers which you may wish to print out and consult. If you'd like any advice about fundraising please feel free to contact us. Thank you for your time and energy!
We offer a range of resources especially useful to school teachers and pupils.
Unfortunately, we do not have any opportunities for volunteering or teaching in Kenya (try visiting Idealist.org).
