A charity close to our hearts is CHETNA who believe in the empowerment of children.
Children in Delhi live in difficult circumstances not by choice but because they have to. Poverty, urbanization, shrinking land holdings and a dysfunctional education system are all to be blamed for their difficult situation. The street children in Delhi can sometimes be invisible with no birth certificates they cannot register for school and therefore it is a vicious cycle.
Team Kirei organize visits to the various CHETNA centres and meet with the children and volunteers. It is an incredibly rewarding experience to see the work that CHETNA are doing!
To date team members have taken part in many fundraising events for charities in the UK. We have completed the 100km night cycle ride around London for the Red Cross.
We also took part in the Round the Island cycle challenge in Ibiza raising funds to build a new respiratory ward at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
