We started the year with a new team member in the UK - Hattie joined as our Communications and Fundraising Officer. We were also fortunate to work with some truly brilliant Civil Service Fast Streamers over the past year, and I want to say a huge thank you to Joe, Lois and Savannah, who gave time, passion and commitment to make Charity Concierge and Remarkable Tours so successful this year.
In March we brought the whole team together for the first time…ever! The UK staff joined the Nairobi team for a week of workshops on the future of Child.org. Together, we agreed an exciting focus for the next few years. This is an evolving piece of work and we look forward to sharing more details in 2023!
In the summer we delivered Charity Concierge at 3 major UK festivals, thanks to our partnership with Festival Republic and raised a record amount - we look forward to being at more festivals this summer.
After three years, a pandemic, staff changes and various other challenges, we completed our Pregnant Women’s Groups (PWG) project in Meru, Kenya - and exceeded all of our targets; working with over 6,000 pregnant women and seeing life-saving results. We will publish our PWG report later in 2023, and launch the next phase of the project.
In November, we had our biggest-ever fundraising month, raising over £400k through two Ride Africa events. We partnered with Kenya Wildlife Service who allowed cyclists through some of their parks for the first time ever.
We are soon to open sales on the same route for Ride Africa 2023 this November - and demand is high so get in quickly if you want to join us! 2022 was truly a comeback year for Child.org. We have managed this at a time when funding for international organisations like ours is becoming increasingly challenging. This has been possible because of our fantastic partners and supporters, like you. Thank you for sticking with us and enabling us to achieve brilliant, life-changing things for mothers and babies in Kenya.
We have so much more to achieve together in 2023.
