Each year Tandaza Trust holds a fundraising walk in Nairobi, Kenya. The funds raised support accommodation, rehabilitation and education services for homeless women in Nairobi. In 2015 Wacuka Kamau, the then Director of Tandaza Trust, organised the first Tandaza fundraising walk in Australia. Since then it has become an annual event.
On Saturday 12th August a group of supporters gathered at Tench Reserve for the 2017 Annual Walk. It was a bright and sunny afternoon and after a short welcome speech by the Chair of Australian Friends of Tandaza and the launch of our new fundraiser cookbook A Taste of Tandaza walkers took to the footpaths and walked the trail to the Penrith Weir and back!
Young and old enjoyed the afternoon alike, as did a number of four legged walkers. As well as the donations for the walk many cookbooks were sold along with Kenyan handicrafts. All funds raised on the day will go to the Tandaza Trust in Nairobi.
We can’t wait to see you for our walk in August 2018!
Our Annual Walk for Tandaza 2016 was a great success! On Saturday 27 August over 50 people along with bikes, scooters, strollers and dogs took part in the walk. In beautiful late winter sunshine with a slight breeze everyone set off on the Bridge to Bridge walk along the Nepean River, Penrith. People went at their own pace and enjoyed each others company along the way. The walk finished back where it started at the Coffee Club Nepean River, which had very kindly hosted our registration table.
