About

Changing Lives One Sale At A Time

ChaffinchUK is the official etsy store of the non-profit 'Chaffinch'.
Chaffinch aims to support vulnerable children in the Kibera slum of Nairobi through the Future Stars Development and Rescue Centre. The centre provides a home for orphans and abandoned children. Sometimes this is a permanent home until the child finishes school. For some, the home is temporary - just until we can find relatives somewhere in Kenya who can take guardianship of the child. We also provide a free primary school for children who would otherwise be unable to access a basic education.

The items for sale in the shop are:
* Produced within the slum, by parents of the schoolchildren or by supportive well-wishers.
Or
* Produced by supporters of Chaffinch in the UK.
Each item is handmade with love and sent out into the world in the hope of making a difference.

When we can provide a hot meal for just 17p, even a seemingly small contribution makes a massive difference. You're changing lives and, as a bonus, you get a beautiful handmade item to cherish.
