  • (1888PressRelease) April 18, 2021 - A Kenyan-based non-profit, Rural Teenagers Support Programme (RTSP) which focuses on empowering vulnerable teenagers in rural Kenya, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Airfunding a global donation-type crowdfunding service that raises funds worldwide. RTSP is fundraising for its social venture called - Badges for Charity - which makes beautiful button badges to raise funds for its Teens Empowerment Programs. The badges program was started in 2016 as a long-term sustainable fundraising venture and has made a significant contribution to RTSP funding. Each badge sold contributes US$0.25 to RTSP.

    Over the years, operating costs have gone up, while funding has reduced. The RTSPís team decided to expand the badge-making venture to increase its turnover and ultimately raise more funds. To do so, we settled for crowdfunding as a way to raise the required amount of US$1,500 that will go towards the purchase of new badge-making parts and equipment, and also marketing. This amount will purchase parts that can make 17,000 badges, which will generate a turnover of US$8,500. This will allow the Badges for Charity venture to increase its working capital and raise a substantial amount for our non-profit.

    On the Airfunding platform, you get pre-set donation amounts that will provide badge making parts and equipment as follows:-

    US$ 3 - 4 Badges
    US$ 5 - 7 Badges
    US$ 20 - 28 Badges
    US$ 50 - 70 Badges / Marketing
    US$ 100 - 1 Pressing Mould / 1 Round Cutter / 140 Badges
    US$ 300 - 1 Pressing Mould + 1 Round Cutter + 140 Badges / 422 Badges
    US$ 500 - 1 Pressing Mould + 1 Round Cutter + 422 Badges / 704 Badges

    RTSP currently we have three programs; Teens Hygiene, Teens Life Skills Education, and Psychological Counselling. Our organization is registered by the NGOs Co-ordination Board Kenya.
