We are registered with the Kenyan Government as a children’s institution and have 34 full-time local staff, (excluding Mary Hinde, the founder and initiator, who is self-funding).
Now in its 24th year, Double Joy depends on the generosity of its donors through Friends of Double Joy
About 200 donors give regular monthly sums providing just less than than half our running costs. For the rest, we rely on one-off grants, donations and fundraising events.
We don’t employ staff in the UK, meaning virtually every penny donated goes directly to where it is most needed and most effective. Recent devaluations in the £ have seriously hit the value of our funds.
To continue our vital work we need your help!
Anything you can give – no matter how small – goes towards saving the lives of those who are left behind by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
As a small ‘word of mouth’ grassroots charity we exist only through your ongoing support and hope you’ll spread the word by recommending Friends of Double Joy to your friends and family
Every donor we have is vital to our survival and, as there are no CEO or UK staff salaries to pay, all donations go where it is needed to sustain our work.
