The true value of charity

Here at KES, we're very proud that every penny we raise, goes to benefit the charity. 

Despite the hardwork and time that all the trustees and extra volunteers willingly give up, they make sure the funds all go to needy students Bahati Division Academy, Nakuru, Kenya, or their respective connected educational institutions.

We may be a small charity, but we're competing extremely well with huge UK charities, making our work really count.

And to prove it, Charity Choice, the charity directory and fundraising website, have recently produced some charity statistics that show how efficient KES is compared to other charities. Here's a random selection for your perusal. You may be surprised at some of these interesting results www.charitychoice.co.uk.
