Walkabout Foundation


Dear Friends,

We are all facing unprecedented challenges under the weight of the COVID-19 pandemic, but here at Walkabout Foundation, we are really taking a huge hit as our fundraising events for this spring and summer have been cancelled, and we have had to postpone so many different initiatives and activities we had planned. 

Many of you may have heard of “GIVING TUESDAY” which typically takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving day. As a result of this global crisis, the charitable sector has launch #GIVINGTUESDAYNOW, a global day of giving and unity, to take place on Tuesday, May 5th around the world.

We would like to take the opportunity to ask you to help the 30 severely disabled kids we host in Nanyuki, Kenya each day, whose families live on less than one dollar a day, and who rely on our support to have 3 meals a day and much needed physical rehabilitation. Our centre has had to close down and is on the verge of closing down indefinitely if we can’t find a way to fundraise. We have set up a #GVINGTUESDAYNOW fundraising page on our site and we ask that you kindly consider donating any amount to help us keep our Kenyan centre alive. It costs us £300 pounds a year to maintain each child, so perhaps you may consider sponsoring a child for a year. We promise it will be a gift you will not regret and a gift that keeps on giving.

With all our love and gratitude,

The Walkabout Team
