Update #2

CAMEL CARAVAN 2017 UPDATE:

In addition to this online campaign, and following fundraising meetings, MID-P (Merti Integrated Development Project) has pledged a mighty 1.4 million Kenyan Shillings, equivalent to just over 17,000 Canadian Dollars (to be settled outside of this Fundly page) for the Camel Caravan! This enormous contribution comes from their Peace, Security and Stability budget, funded by the Danish Embassy.

First and foremost, this will allow us to include Borana and Turkana communities, as well as already planned for Maasai and Samburu communities, in the journey and discussions. This will make the 2017 Camel Caravan even more far-reaching, inclusive, and influential than had been envisioned.

However, due to concerns over security, drought, and the upcoming elections, we have decided to postpone the event. The new dates are set for the 11th to 15th of September. The current drought across the country and the conflicts in central Kenya highlight the need for water conservation and peace-building initiatives.

On the upside, the postponement of the event means that the fundraising process can continue, and additional time is available to advertise more widely and seek even greater participation in the project. We are currently reworking the budget to incorporate further avenues for expansion and set a new fundraising target.

We would like to thank all of the contributors who have set aside donations out of their personal income and savings to help bring this project to fruition – your generosity and support is greatly appreciated and is allowing the Camel Caravan project to grow to its full potential. Thank you.
