Over the past 12 months KOP Warwick have smashed through our fundraising target and had a brilliant time doing it!
We raised over £5000 selling cakes and Pimms, shaking buckets at train stations, cycling from London to Paris, climbing the height of Kilimanjaro on the Warwick climbing wall, running half marathons, doing all sorts of triathlons and some of us even climbed Kilimanjaro for real!
This August we travelled to Kisumu to see how our money was being put to good use (and to lend a helping hand!).
We supported three projects this year;
· Oasis of Hope – building a new school building for disadvantaged but very bright teenagers
· Resources and food for a rural feeding centre at Ombeyi
· HOVIC – the street childrens’ centre.
We had a fantastic time teaching and playing with the children and getting stuck into the building! We were also invited to visit a new medical school being set up in the province, which gave us a fantastic insight into the Kenyan health care system.
The whole experience was eye opening and wonderful – we wish we could go back!
We are really excited about KOP at Warwick this year and the aim is to get even more people involved and make KOP Warwick bigger and better than ever! We would love to hear from you if you would like to get involved or even if you just want to find out more.

"Visiting Kisumu and learning how hard life can be for children in Kenya was a real eye opener. But seeing the work that KOP and its project partners are doing is really inspiring! It will be fantastic raising more money and encouraging others to go out there next summer to carry on the great work.” 2011
"I learnt about the standard of healthcare (and availability) to people in Kisumu and the issues and difficulties facing OVCs in Kisumu. It was great to learn about all of the work put into trying to alleviate these problems. I learnt to carve soapstone (badly) and cement a window (also badly!)". 2010
