My story

I’m fundraising this Christian Aid Week! Why? To help young people push back against drugs (kush). Did you know, drugs affect more than 70% of young people currently in Sierra Leone and Tombodu Community to be presides.

Christian Aid are working to empower families in Tombodu build reliable young generation. Our future generations is at risk if we don’t try to handle the current situation young people are facing, there are young graduates losing themselves through this drug (kush) parents are losing their children, visions are dying. 

There’s more people Christian Aid could reach – and that’s why I’m fundraising.

The money raised can help ensure more people get the skills and knowledge they need to fulfill their hopes and ambitions.  £20 could provide one person with the necessary support needed to bring them back to their normal self with frequent engagement and given them the support they need. 

Together we can make a lasting difference.  Thank you for your support!

How your money helps

Poverty pushed Aline to the brink. She was abused, homeless and hungry. But Aline pushed back harder. With Christian Aid funded small business training, she achieved what had seemed impossible, a vital income for her and her children.

Fundraising this Christian Aid Week will ensure more people in Burundi get the skills and knowledge they need to push back against the inhumanity of poverty.
