Melita Koye, from Kenya, gave up on the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) after understanding its harmfulness. Today, she does awareness work against FMG, supported by her church and Fida.
Red Nose Day is once again raising funds for the children of the world. Fida is one of the organizations channeling Red Nose Day help. Fida is channeling funds into its programs in Uganda, Burundi, Kenya, and Tanzania. In these countries, communities are educated about children’s rights and children’s education is supported. In addition, the funds will be used to realize the rights of children with disabilities.
The sponsorship is a peek into different cultures and an opportunity to change the world from your home sofa. However, few know that the sponsorship has changed over the years and the sponsor is helping a lot more today than before.
Fida, with nine other Finnish development cooperation organizations, participated in the Red Nose fundraising campaign 2020 for the children of the world. With this support families in Kenya can reap a harvest despite the distressing drought in the area.
