London screening of ‘Across Kenya’ raises £426 for street children

Across Kenya

“How do you begin to understand the journey of a street child?…Make a journey of your own.”

In July 2010 AfCiC volunteer Chris Howarth did just that. He ran 1000 miles across the entire breadth of Kenya, through 12 major towns and cities. Running the equivalent of 40 marathons in 30 days, through the country’s toughest terrain and diverse landscapes – from the remote mountains and altitude of the Rift Valley and Central Provinces – to the sprawling urban heart of Nairobi – and through the barren, desert roads towards Mombasa. However, this challenge was about far more than just running…

Chris wanted to raise awareness and much-needed funds for street children and the small charities that support them to leave the streets behind for good.

On a sunny Sunday evening in May, AfCiC and the Across Kenya team took over The Roxy Bar and Screen in London. Over 70 guests joined us to watch the film and take part in a Question and Answer session with Chris and members of AfCiC’s Board of Trustees. Over £450 was raised that evening to support AfCiC’s work with the vulnerable children of Thika. Thank you to everyone who attended and made it such a special evening.
