Three years ago ,Marta Baeta, a Portuguese student went to Kibera, the largest slum in the world in a school project . After three months she returned to Portugal, sold all that she had, and returned to Kenya, where she decided to found the project of hes life, From Kibera With Love. Marta managed to create a school program that favela children could attend, teachers, leisure activities, but the main fight is to get donations for their education . I, Diana, decided to join her, but before...

This crowdfunding serves to raise funds for the children of the world’s largest slum, Kibera in Kenya. The project From Kibera with Love has three years and aims to offer children the opportunity to study in a good school rather than walk around the favela, like the past generations. Education is the greatest weapon that can give a child, as said Nelson Mandela.

There is no support of local organizations and the Kenyan government as no interest in help.

Martaa Baeta, Portuguese founder of the organization From Kibera With Love, lives in Kibera for the past three years, and work hard daily in this project she created. She has been deathly threatened. They are the future of the country. We need to help her changing that.

Progress and education generates more informed and more demanding citizens. And not everyone wants that. Not everyone has an interest in it.

The under-development is mirrored in Africa, which concentrates most of the poorest countries in the world, which are in a dramatic situation: the economy is delayed and dependent agriculture is backward and threatened by devastating droughts and bad weather, politic is dominated by instability generated by the establishment of dictatorial governments and the persistence of tribal conflicts. Consequently, the pillars of social development: health, education and culture, are void. 

I met this project, through my Rotaract Club and we have been senting some school books, medicin, and lamps through Marta’s mother, who regularly visit her in Kenya, I decided to go there too. It is impossible to remain indifferent to this situation.

Today we easily spend € 5 (or more) per week in futility. Can you give up a coffee a day to help these kids?

Marta founded this project, and I'm ready to leave Lisbon, and to help with anything they need. I assure you that your money will be well spent, I give you my word.

You have here the opportunity to change the life of a child, which in the future will become an educated young adult, informed and with clear golds.

This is the greatest wealth that we can give to someone. There are tragedies worldwide, and there are also Portuguese suffering from shortages.

I do my part here, and now I will make it there too. 1 euro is enough to help these boys. Are you in?

After 3 months she couldn’t move on with her life after she found so many children in total misery and with no hope in future. She returned to Portugal, sold everything he shad in Portugal and moved to Kenya where she currently lives with one goal: to achieve education for all children of the favela. T

hey survive only with donations, mainly from Portugal and children who are already studying, now smile, play, and they see a bright future ahead of them.

Diana Nicolau, Portuguese professional actress, a founding member of the Rotaract Club of Lisbon, a leadership program through volunteer ans social work.

As soon as she met the Project From Kibera With Love, she decided to help them. At first, just by sending some needed items, but now, she will travel to Kenya and live at the favela until February 2016.

With acting and communications skills she hopes to help children in art, drama and other fields.

With knowledges in marketing & advertising (from IADE – Lisbon Creative University), she will help improve the Project visibility and communication.

Among other skills, she is ready to do whatever it needs.

Diana created this crowfunding to ensure that her trip to Kenya will not be in vain.

    PARA ONDE FOI O MEU DINHEIRO?

    Há 4 meses criei um crowdfunding para conseguir financiar os estudos das crianças apoiadas pelo projecto From Kibera With Love da Marta Baeta. A adesão e generosidade das pessoas surpreendeu-me. Continuo a acreditar que para mudar o mundo e ajudar alguém, basta querer.
    Muitos de vocês quiseram! Obrigada por isso.
    Quero dizer-vos então para onde foi a vossa ajuda generosa:

    O crowdfunding gerou 6652€ (ultrapassámos o objectivo em mais de 4 vezes)
    Comissão da plataforma PPL: 409,1€
    Restante para o projecto: 6242,9 €

    1189,05€ (136000 KSH) pagaram 1 ano de propinas do OJ que está na Universidade (Kenyatta University), a estudar Economics & Finances. Graças aos donativos que chegaram ao From Kibera With Love, o OJ foi o primeiro jovem a ingressar na universidade. O crowdfunding permitiu que ele pudesse continuar. Obrigada!

    83€ (9500 KSH) fizeram a Mama Félix, cozinheira do projecto, mais feliz. Um fogão novo que permite fazer as refeições em 30 minutos, bem mais rápido do que o que usava antes.

    Ainda restam 4970,85€. Vou pôr-vos a par do seu destino, à medida que forem utilizados.

    Obrigada a todos os que contribuiram.
    Está em curso um projecto para remodelar o chão do recreio do espaço onde as crianças brincam, no FKWL. À medida que surgirem mais novidades e aplicações do dinheiro, saberão.

    As fotos do fogão, do OJ e as restantes podem ser vistas em https://www.facebook.com/DianaNicolauPage/

    Last day. Thank you donor!

    If you are reading this message, it is because you were a donor of crowdunfing To Kibera With Love, and have contribute to improve the lives of these 65 children. I have no words to thank you. It's the last day, and the original purpose (sponsorship of a child for one year), was exceeded by three times. And now we can ensure the education of three children for a year, in the best private school in the vicinity.

    On my blog you can follow the daily adventures, accompanied with pictures to illustrate this experience, and can meet the faces of the children who you are helping. www.www.DIANAinkibera.blogspot.com

    Missing € 121 to reach € 5,000 and would be a victory to achieve it. Fingers crossed, there are still 12 hours to the end of the campaign.

    I urge all donors interested in receiving the reward corresponding to the amount of your donation, to send me an email to the address tokiberawithlove@gmail.com
    Once I return to Portugal, I will send it to you.

    A very thank you on behalf of children of From Kibera With Love

    Último dia. Last day!

    Se estás a receber esta mensagem, é porque foste um doador do crowdunfing To Kibera With Love, e já contribuíste para melhorar a vida destas 65 crianças. Não tenho palavras para te agradecer. É o último dia, e o objectivo inicial (apadrinhamento de uma criança por um ano), foi ultrapassado em 3 vezes mais. E conseguimos assim garantir a educação de três crianças durante um ano, na melhor escola privada dos arredores.

    No meu blog podem seguir as aventuras diárias, acompanhadas com fotos, para ilustrar esta experiência, e podem conhecer as caras das crianças que estão a ajudar. www.www.DIANAinkibera.blogspot.com

    Faltam 121€ para atingir os 5000€ e seria uma vitória consegui-lo. Figas feitas, ainda faltam 12horas para o final da campanha.

    Peço a todos os doadores interessados em receber a recompensa correspondente ao valor do seu donativo, me enviem um email com a morada para tokiberawithlove@gmail.com
    Assim que regressar a Portugal, tentarei enviar tudo. Quem viver em Lisboa, podemos encontrar-nos se for mais fácil.

    Um muito muito obrigada em nome das crianças do From Kibera With Love
