Our goal is to raise $1200 through saving spare change for one month to help sponsor orphans in Africa.

Your Change for World Change is a fundraiser group started by three college students who want to make a difference in some children's lives. We have been frustrated in the past by not being able to do something practical to help others. We believe that this is a way we can finally do something.

We found out about Gethsemane International Africa an organization located in Kenya. The children at Gethsemane range from 7-18 years old. Many have lost their parents to AIDS. Most of them come from Kawangware - one of the fastest growing slums in Nairobi.

Gethsemane provides shelter, food, and education for the children who are living there but most importantly they provide a loving home environment.

The home runs greatly off of sponsorship money and 12 of the kids do not have sponsors. It costs $100 a month to sponsor a child at Gethsemane. We want to help.

Our goal is raise $1200 in one month to sponsor each of these unsponsored children for one month.

We aim to do this by saving all our spare change for one month.

Will you join us in this? Take the challenge to save your spare change for one month to give to Gethsemane. At the end of the month count your change and make the donation here.
