When in 2006 we met with Eunice Kamotho, the funder of the Rehabilitation Centre for orphans in Muranga, Kenya, we felt that what we could do from Europe to contribute in her project would not be in vain.
Eunice is someone who is very much committed to her charitable work and the girls she has accompanied since 1997. For he girls, Eunice is like their mother and the person who gave them the opportunity to study and dream about a professionnal project that they never would have imagined in their situation.
We started looking for sponsors in Spain, Ireland, France and the USA and one of our first partners was Versión Original Traducciones S.L.. they offered us to translate our web page www.theeuniceupendoproject.com from english to spanish in order to connect with a wider public and get known in Spain and Latin America.
Our 2 main objectives are the following:
- The construction of a dormitory large enough and well equipped in order to answer the program needs.
- The sponsorship of the girls studies like Versión Original Traducciones S.L. is doing this year again.
We are a registered NGO based in Dublin under nº CHY21107. Our website is www.theeuniceupendoproject.com. You also can find us on Facebook: Upendo´s Friends and read and participate in our actions.
There are various ways to help the girls continue studying, punctual actions like the ones we publish in https://www.justgiving.com/the-eunice-upendo-project or sponsoring a girl like Versión Original Traducciones.
We are very proud to get the backing of María and Cristina since they started collaborating back in 2010.
If you have any kind of questions about our NGO, we will be very pleased to give you all the necessary information.
