Hope for Children, an international charity is delighted to announce that is has been awarded a grant by St. James's Place Charitable Foundation to help fund its work among disabled children in Kenya. The Foundation is the charitable arm of the St. James's Place Wealth Management Group and the funds will enable mothers to improve the health, development and quality of life of their children through home-based therapy.
Hope for Children’s work helps those in Africa, Asia and the UK, including orphans and those living on the streets, by improving their access to education and healthcare, whilst empowering families to build a sustainable future for their children. By working closely with local organisations, Hope for Children empowers those communities to increase the ability to give their own children the childhood they deserve. Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, last year it was able to transform the lives of over 37,000 children and their families.
The St. James's Place Charitable Foundation aims to make a significant difference to the lives of children and young people. It gives grants to charities working for the direct benefit of economically disadvantaged or socially marginalised young people, the physically disabled, or those suffering from a mental condition or life-threatening or degenerative illness.
Peter Wild, representative of St. James's Place Wealth Management commented “It is our pleasure to support and help Hope for Children obtain a grant of £12,000 from the St. James's Place Charitable Foundation. We are passionate about helping charities which support children with special needs. A key member of my team is a mum to a young person with special needs and having supported a local Chichester charity last year, PACSO, through the Foundation, I have seen with my own eyes the benefit to families that these charities make.”
Murielle Maupoint, Hope for Children’s Chief Executive added “We are so grateful to the St. James's Place Charitable Foundation for making this grant available, which will have a sustainable impact on the lives of many disabled children in Kenya.”
