Checkout a German news channel's coverage of the FICHA UCHI movement. We may not get the same coverage here in the US, but we can make this project go viral. All it takes is a click and share from you. Ultimately the kids we aim to serve need clothing. Please give today: start your day off with some good Karma for just $12.
Mathare children fortunate enough to go to school are often forced to wear torn clothing.
"Kids will be kids" for sure! The Ficha Uchi movement strides to take a way the stigma of poverty, and clothe children in respectable new school uniforms.
Ficha Uchi movement personally measures children and custom makes school uniforms for the children. A secondary benefit of the campaign is that we train and hire locals to be tailors, further helping the community.
So what is FICHA UCHI?
FICHA UCHI is a collaborative project that plans to make every school aged child feel loved with one new school uniform to start the school year. The FICHA UCHI campaign is the brain child of 4 university students from Mathare who understand the lasting emotional and sometime physical abuse of being poor. The lasting self-image problems with attending school in torn and raggedy school uniforms is a preventable and manageable problem to solve, and one that we can all prevent.
In partnership with the Chantal Paydar Foundation, the FICHA UCHI movement has already funded the clothing of 500 school kids and has gained great acclaim for their humanitarian actions. Although we will be formally launching our joint crowd-funding campaign in November, I would like to ask you to make a contribution today to help start this new school year with great positivity because you have changed the outlook of a child, with a small act of kindness.
Each $12 donation will clothe one child from Mathare with a new custom made school uniform that can last them for 2 years!
