Spur Fundraising Drive

Help us buy a new van!

Spur Kibera requires a need van to replace our old van named Linda. Linda has served us well (over the last 8 years), however due to the rough roads, wear and tear, it is time we purchase a new van. Please help us raise money to purchase a new van to be used in Kibera, Kenya.

The van is used for:

  • transportation of goods within the slum and in Nairobi e.g. medications, school materials, equipment, food items during emergency (COVID food bank)
  • visits to children's homes and schools
  • special excursions or social events related to Spur activities
  • visits to medical appointments / clinics
  • mission team members when they visit or volunteer
  • transportation for the workers for training or other Spur work related visitation

Please consider donating before 12th September. All donations over $2 are tax deductible in Australia. More details can be found on our fundraising page!

What we do

We engage the local community

We believe in locally-led change. As all our programs are run in Kenya, we felt it was important to engage Kenyan locals to determine and do the work they saw need for in their community. We support all Kenyan Spur employees with living wages through our Sponsor a Worker Program.

We empower young Kenyans and their families

Spur is located in Kibera, Kenya's largest poverty-stricken slum. In this environment, we believe that sustainable change for young people is only possible with consistent financial assistance to children and their families, and authentic mentorship from role models. Our Child Sponsorship Program currently has 100 sponsored children who are offered financial aid, local mentorship and a transitional scholarship should they gain a place in university.

We educate young Kenyans in vital areas

We believe in the pivotal role education can have in progressing a society away from poverty. Through a number of locally conceived programs that focus on topics such as health, literacy and female empowerment in young people, we aim to equip the next generation with knowledge and skills that last a lifetime – within and beyond their own.

Support us

The work we do in Kenya is not possible without the generous support of our donors. Make a one-off general donation, or commit to sponsoring a child or worker today.
