Our Home Nakuru - registered charity number 1154639 - is an innovative and fantastic cause. It is a community based organisation in Nakuru, Kenya which works to provide a safe and secure homestead for the street children of Nakuru, many who as young as 6 sniff glue to escape their reality, OHN provide opportunity for these children, not just charity. Their ethos is to create a children's home and community support network which doesnt just temporarily alleviate the problem, but finds the source of the issue and solves it in its most raw form. they believe that if you really want to create a sustainable community, then you have to act like a community. In two weeks time I am going out to Nakuru, Kenya for two months to work closely with OHN in the setting up of their model farm - a farm which works with drought resistant crops and new farming methods which can provide an example to other farmers to alleviate the rural community areas out of poverty and the never ending cycle of drought and famine. 

I am taking on the challenge of living on just £2 a day for food and water for the two weeks before I leave to try and raise money for this project and for the home in general if possible. I think it is incredibly important to take the time to put things into perspective and develop a greater understanding of the lives of those below the poverty line. There is no reason for any human being, especially a child, to suffer this way when our generation has the power to end it. So this is my way of supporting all the amazing work that takes place at Our Home Nakuru in providing children the chance to be children, and communities the chance of a future. 

I will be updating daily on twitter and instagram so anybody who is interested can make sure I am sticking to my £2 a day deal! Follow me on @lavinia_taylor (twitter) and laviniataylor (insta). Thank you to all who help me to help others to help themselves, and 'asante sana' from all those at the home, for little by little a little becomes a lot.
