All our fundraising goes directly to the charity's projects. This year, KOP Warwick are fundraising to support VIMA, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) in Kisumu, which aims to support orphans and vulnerable children in the Kisumu area. Our aim this year is to raise £4000 for VIMA, so all your contributions, help and support will be greatly appreciated.
Our 2011 team have all got their fundraising hats on so please check back soon to see what events are being planned!
Many thanks everyone who donated to KOP Warwick 2010. Over the last 12 months we raised £3500 for VIMA. Find out about how our trip to Kisumu Kenya went this summer here.
Kili Crazy - a massive success!
On the 24th of June the KOP team, with the help of some amazing friends and family, climbed the height of Mount Kilimanjaro. It was lots of hard work, but more importantly lots of fun and although the KOP 2011 team have reached their fundraising target, we managed to raise extra money for the brilliant work KOP does in Kenya. Some photos are up on KOP Warwick's facebook page and if you'd like to donate just visit justgiving.com/kopwarwick2011.

Nairobi to Kisumu - A KOPing Long Way! Take Two!
In July 2010 the Warwick KOP 2010 team aimed to complete the epic 435 km bike ride from Nairobi to Kisumu as a relay, and they completed it within the target of 12 hours!! The event was a great success and as a result in October 2010 universities across the UK took part in a national relay. On Saturday the 30th of October 2010 the KOP Warwick team and some lovely friends completed the cycle for a second time,in under 8 and a half hours, but this time in front of the whole university, in the atrium of main campus. The team raised over £300 to be put towards this years total and raised the profile of the work undertaken by KOP at Warwick University. Thank you so much to everyone who took part and contributed!
