“Something unexpected happened: someone wanted to buy my photo shots! But I didn’t have any clue on what to do with those money….
I talked about it to a Friend.
She started telling me about Timboni, a small village close to Watamu, in Kenia, where a group of local women was offering shelter to orphan children.
An idea came up…”

Then it was Marta’s time. And again Michela’s, Fanny’s and all other Friends who decided to follow us through this adventure, with strong goodwill and a bit of recklessness!

This is how My Name Is Help was born: from the enthusiasm of a group of youngsters from Bergamo who, inspired by the desire of creating a different idea than the usual Onlus, starting 2005 gave birth to a very special project: buying a plot of land where to raise a nursery school to welcome, take care and lead to education the orphan children of Kenya.
The S.P & K. Nursery School.

In only two years time we have completed the first building, a huge classroom where the over 60 children could get together and, coordinated by 4 local teachers, learn english language and maths basics. Children have been divided into 4 classes, not by age but based on their schooling level.
Since the main target was to create a community youth centre, starting January 2008 we have added to the schooling rooms a dorm, kitchens and a dining hall, in order to provide the children with the care and affection they so much long for.
At today, the complex and the medical dispensary ensure the children a more secure and serene future.

This dream could come true thanks to the effort of all those who have followed us and wanted to become part of our project: a project that doesn’t belong to any religion or party, that originates from the will and unselfishness of any single free individual.
