Everyday people, like you, who’ve made great stuff happen at Kesho Leo.

introducing... the final founding fifty

With Kesho Leo Children's village nearing completion in 2007-2009, we came up with a bold fundraising idea for our members, volunteers and supporters to pass on to their friends and family.

The Final Founding Fifty are 50 people who each donated $2,000 (tax deductible) to fws to complete the building of Kesho Leo children’s village. One hundred percent of these donations went directly to the cause (i.e. no admin fees were taken).

introducing...mia kwa mia members

Mia Kwa Mia was a club membership we created in 2013 and ran till 2016 that aimed to cover Kesho Leo’s operating costs. Mia Kwa Mia means 100 for 100 in Kiswahili. We aimed to find 100 members and asked each to donate $100 a month. A huge thank you to our 20 Mia Kwa Mia members who helped fund Kesho Leo’s operating expenses for three years.
