Now in its 3rd year, KOP at Imperial is growing as fast as ever!! Since 2010 a group of keen volunteers, both medics and non-medics decided to set up a branch of KOP at Imperial College London. Imperial’s Kenyan Orphan Project (iKOP) started in April 2010 and in Summer 2010 the first group of 7 medical students travelled to Kisumu to witness the progress of the projects, lend a helping hand, and see the fruits of our fundraising efforts. Last year, we sent 11 students, this time medics and non-medics, and managed to beat our fundraising target! We greatly thank everyone who has supported our fundraising events in the past, the lives of these children have truly benefited and we can bear witness to that! There is still so much work to be done in Kisumu, with so many vulnerable children and orphans still to be reached.
With so much success in the previous 2 years, we look forward to iKOP 2012 where we hope to make a bigger and better impact by taking more students out to make a real difference. Please continue to support us in doing this.
Fundraising activities will take place throughout the year in and around the South Kensington campus and include carol singing, cake sales, embarrassing valentine’s day deliveries and much more....
Please join our mailing list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to keep posted with both all our activities.

"I've learnt so much from this, mainly to appreciate the important things and how much they mean. I've also learned that I'm actually stronger and more confident than I thought. I've learned a lot about Kenya and the people and was so happy to see their wonderful attitudes.".
