Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
2015 has been an incredible year of growth, joy and success for Spur Afrika. This year we celebrated many millstones, such as Spur Afrika Kenyas 5th birthday, Spur Afrika Australias 1st birthday and the purchase of our first car in Kenya. We expanded our operations to include a girls program, we sponsored more children and we successfully started a mentors program. We are especially thankful for our Kenyan workers, mentors and volunteers as they tirelessly work to run our programs. They are the heart and soul of Spur Afrika. In Australia we focused on fundraising, governance and raising awareness. We are deeply thankful for Gods provision as we have reached and exceeded our fundraising goal for the year. It has been amazing to witness our community come together to fundraise, run, bake, attend events and create art. We are in awe of how much love, dedication and support we have received. The board, workers and volunteers take immense responsibility for the funds donated. It is because of Gods faithfulness and your dedication, that children and young adults are receiving life changing and sustainable care. It is a privilege to transform lives together! Thank you for choosing to partner with Spur Afrika. We pray, hope and look forward to your continued support. 2016 will bring changes, development and hopefully much success for our community in Australia and in Kenya.
