Together we will make a difference! Sponsor a child today
As a child sponsor, you can help change lives for $45 a month.
Akina Ties is entirely run by volunteers so (unlike the big name charities) every cent of sponsorship money and donations that we receive is sent directly to Kenya for spending on our children.
How Child Sponsorship helps
The reality of providing care for children and women who have experienced the toughest of lives is expensive. They often have complex health and psychological needs. At present all money raised through sponsorship is used to fund the running costs of the centre as a whole. This includes: providing food, accommodation, clothing, health care and schooling for each of our precious children.
Some children who have been in the care of Akina Ties are lucky enough to have been reunited with family or trusted community members (when safe to do so) and Akina Ties will continue to support them where necessary. Other children will remain in the care of Akina Ties for life, and we may be their only family.
Akina Ties Haven is a purpose build house built in 2018. The children are cared for in a close knit family environment model filled with understanding, respect and love.
With up to 20 active growing children in our care school uniforms, respectable clothes for outings, sleep wear and every day clothes are always in high demand.
Many children come into our care malnourished and/or with complex health conditions that will require life long treatment. Adequate health care is vital to they have long happy lives.
All school age children in the care of Akina Ties attend school in some form. Children who are unable to cope in main stream schools are educated onsite at Akina Ties Haven by a qualified teacher.
What happens when I Sponsor a Child?
When you sponsor an Akina Ties child you will be posted a welcome pack. This will contain a welcome letter, sponsorship guidlines and your sponsored child’s details and photo.
As a regular sponsor you are invited to provide a photo of yourself or family to be added to our acknowlegement wall in Akina Ties Haven. The wall is our way of honouring our loyal supporters and also shows the Akina Ties children the many faces that believe in their right to a happy safe life.
