Jalia is a grassroots charity dedicated to supporting socially and economically disadvantaged children and communities in Nanyuki, Kenya. Working with local organisations, we provide funding and sponsorship for education, enterprise and poverty relief. Our vision is for all children in Nanyuki to receive an education so that they are better able to empower themselves. By focusing our efforts on both children and their communities we hope to support small-scale sustainable change.

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. I intend to trek/run the full Tour de Mont Blanc trekking route in the French/Swiss/Italian Alps of 170km over a total height gain of over 9000m over 48hrs non stop.... This is all in memory of my Sister-in-law Fiona who recently passed away but her remaining legacy of being an educated Kenyan female will continue on in the charity work of Jalia....

Since beginning my fundraising we have raised enough and secured the secondary education for two girls, Rose and Elizabeth in Kenya for the next four years. Further donations will only ensure we can pay fully for the four years and and extra may give an opportunity for a third girl next year to begin their secondary education. Thank you for all your donations, we are in regular contact with Jalia and will continue to help in any way we can...
