My Road To Challenge Kenya 2014
My name is Michael Hirst and I work for BT Openreach in service delivery, I am embarking on an extremely challenging journey to Africa where I will be rebuilding a school in the Kibera Slums, Kenya. The Kibera Slums is an area about 1.5 square miles but with a population of over 1 million. Most people living in Kibera have little or no access to basic necessities, such as electricity, clean water, toilet facility and sewage disposal. The combination of poor nutrition and lack of sanitation accounts for many illnesses and deaths especially in young children.
In order to take part in the trip I need to raise £3500!
I am doing this event in memory of my mum (Karen Dunn) who is still my inspiration for everything I do, I have never done anything like this and finding it very challenging but I am determined to get there. I give up almost every weekend and have had to pay £700 in personal contribution, this is not a holiday thank you for your help.
