18-12-2017: Great news! Thanks to a donorparent we got in contact with the Umdasch Foundation in Austria. We asked them to help us to finance the educational programmes and this is their answer:  "We are delighted to announce Umdasch Foundation decided to support Fahari Foundation with funds for educational programmes for our children. The Umdasch Foundation is an initiative of Hilde Umdasch and Alfred Umdasch with the goal of linking together the fields of education, economy and ethics. The Fahari Foundation project was selected because of the joint objectives providing better future via education and self-reliance."
 
17-12-2017: The board of the Fahari Foundation wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and all the best for the new year. We would like to thank everyone who, in his or her own way, contributed to the welfare of the children in our project in Kenya. 
 
17-12-2016: Trees, Jacqueline and Liesbeth sell all kinds of things for the Fahari Foundation during the Christmas in Duiven. 
 
13-12-2016: Next school year (January 2017) we will have as many as 14 children at secondary schools in Kenya. These up country schools are qualitatively better than the schools near the coast. The first children left by bus and have arrived in Nairobi.
 
11-12-2016: There was a Dickens Christmas Market in Duiven. Trees, Liesbeth and Jacqueline staffed a booth and raised money for the Fahari Foundation. Thank you ladies! 
 
01-12-2016: Lae-titia (Chairlady of the Fahari Foundation) went for a surprise visit to the project. Besides the visit to the Trots Foundation Centre (Fahari Foundation Centre), she visited some families of (new) children in the project. Everybody enjoyed a beach day and there were many meetings with the caretakers of the children, the team and several other people. A visit to never forget! 
 
20-11-2016: As a result of the fact that the new water tower is situated in the vegetable garden, it had to be re-build. It looks good again! 
 
19-11-2016: In 2017 it is planned that 14 of our children will continue their study at high school. A milestone in the history of the Fahari Foundation and a major achievement if you recognize that without the Foundation these children would most likely not enjoy education at all! The additional annual costs for high school education compared to ground school education is € 600,00 per child. Up to this moment we still need € 5.500,00 from the neccessary € 8.400,00 to pay for their education. It is our mutual challenge to secure the financial means to make this happen. Do you want to reach out and donate for high school education, or do you know friends, family or companies who support our initiative and make a durable change to the life of these children? Please contact the Fahari Foundation board members so we can get in contact. Any financial contribution is appreciated under title "high school support 2017”. The Fahari Foundation bank account details are:FAHARI FOUNDATION, IBAN: NL77 RABO 0121040313 BIC: RABONL2U
On behave of the Fahari children we say: ASANTE SANA!
 
18-11-2016: The water tower, which we can build, thanks to many donations, is nearing completion! The plaster has to dry and then the tower can be painted.

In this department the hospital fights the unnecessary deaths of mothers and their (un) born child.
 
03-01-2016: We are looking for additional donor parents for 15 children in the project. Donor parent usually means that you pay € 50.00 per month to the Foundation. Because these children already have a donor parent of € 25.00 per month it means you transfer € 25.00 per month to the account of the Fahari Foundation and with that money you contribute to the daily care (food, drink, clothing, medical care etc.) of the children. You and the other donor parent will be linked to one of the children. Together we ensure that the children become self-reliant! Are you interested? Please contact us via faharifoundation@hotmail.com or by phone at 0621543260. We gladly answer your questions and discuss the possibilities. 

01-01-2016: We would like to wish everybody all the best in 2016. Together with your support we can give the children in the project a self-reliant life. On behalf of the children in Mtwapa thanks for everything that you are going to do to help us!
