Connecting Countries is associated with events that support and draw attention to its programs.
Kids for Kenya Toilet Run is an athletic fundraising event organized on our behalf by Hamilton’s Adventure Running Kids and supported by many local businesses and families. Local youth runners participate in either a 1km, 2km, or 3km cross-country race within a neighbourhood park. Net proceeds support our Latrine Building Program. This is a day of exercise and good will and is endorsed by Canadian Olympic Marathon Runner Reid Coolsaet.
Double Your Donation
Double Your Donation is a fundraising campaign that takes place over the December holiday period. During this time, every donation we receive is matched, dollar for dollar! Donors can double the difference they make! All proceeds will go towards our Clean Hands and Water Harvesting programs, supporting elementary schools in Ol Joro Orok, Kenya. Help a young student receive the sanitation and clean water that they deserve and need.
Make A Difference Tour
Make A Difference Tour is a new endeavour for Connecting Countries. In 2017, we partnered with an Alliance Destinations, touring travellers around Kenya! Tour members were able to visit 4 primary schools in Nyandarua County West affiliated with Connecting Countries. At three of these schools, tour members started and completed developmental projects which Make A Difference in the lives of the primary school children.
