The Kindu Trust is a small charity that supports poor children and their families in Northern Ethiopia.
Last October their UK team ran a half marathon and raised a considerable £997.40 through Virgin Money Giving. This money enabled the charity to launch an exciting new youth group in Gondar – the ‘Kindu Klub’.
The families that the charity support live in tough conditions with many parents illiterate and unable to provide any educational support for their children at home. Overcrowded housing and sporadic electricity limits the ability of these kids to study outside of school, but without gaining a thorough education they will face a difficult future finding employment.
The Kindu Klub provides supplementary education and a place for children in Gondar to study and participate in games and activities. With this support the children have a better chance of gaining a precious education that is so vital for a sustainable future for both themselves and their communities.
It’s been a success story that all involved with The Kindu Trust can be proud of.
