N2K Walk 2013: Community Upliftment Project in Northeast Kenya kicks off with 2-day conference

Posted on Wed, 2014-05-21 19:57

In December 2013, the N2K Team, a group of youth from London (UK) walked from the Holy City of Najaf to the land of Karbala during Arbaeen 1435 to raise funds for The World Federation’s ‘Community Upliftment Project in Northeast Kenya’.

This initiative is a joint venture between The World Federation and Africa Federation which aims to provide long-term, sustainable solutions to uplift communities in Kenya’s drought affected areas and take them out of poverty.

The N2K Team raised almost £40,000 GBP of the £60,000 allocated for this project. The project comprises 9 different initiatives. This progress report provides an overview of the first initiative - ‘Education and Community Development Conference’ workshop organised for students, which was held on 1st and 2nd March 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya. 

 

The World Federation takes this opportunity to thank each and every member of the N2K Team for supporting the Community Upliftment Project in Northeast Kenya and all of the donors who so generously contributed to their fundraising efforts.

This year several individuals, couples and families will be embarking on the spiritual journey of walking from Najaf to Karbala to commemorate Arba’een.  These people from different parts of the world will unite to complete an 80km walk through war-torn Iraq from the holy city of Najaf to the land of Karbala. They shall walk for three days during the daytime with the scorching desert sun bearing down upon them and they will rest in the evenings in makeshift tents, when the blistering cold takes over as temperatures rapidly plummet.
