We love the opportunity for our supporters to visit our Seed of Hope training centres to see the transformative programme in action for themselves, and meet staff, students and graduates who can directly share their experiences and the positive impacts on their lives.

We recently had the pleasure of hosting Antonia Schack and friends on a visit to rural Seed of Hope Kariti. Antonia had raised funds in aid of Raising Futures Kenya through a fantastic creAID gallery event in Berlin last November, and was able to see for herself how the funds support our award-winning training for young people in Kenya.

Here’s what Antonia had to say about her visit to Seed of Hope Kain January 2024:

“From the moment we arrived at the school, Mary’s kindness and enthusiasm set the tone for an incredible experience. Her informative tour and warm welcome filled us with admiration for the work being done at the education center.”

“The positivity and love in the atmosphere were truly inspiring, and I was profoundly moved by the dedication of everyone involved. The students’ heartfelt greeting on a Saturday, their joyful performances, and their genuine enthusiasm left an impression.”

“Choosing Raising Futures as our NGO for our event has been one of the best decisions we’ve made, and witnessing firsthand the impact of your work reaffirmed our commitment to supporting your cause.”

“Thank you for everything you do. Your passion, dedication, and unwavering commitment to empowering communities are truly commendable. Keep shining brightly, and know that your efforts are making a difference.”
