Luxembourg to Korogocho in 80 days!

Our challenge: we want to “virtually” cover 9,772 km, the distance between Luxembourg and Korogocho, in 80 days, to raise money to fund much needed projects for the poorest of the poor who live in the slum of Korogocho (Nairobi, Kenya).

Can you help us to achieve our fundraising goal of EUR 9,772?

Here’s what we suggest: commit to an event by yourself or with family and friends – maybe you can all run, cycle, walk, swim. Let us know the day(s) you are doing it, between the 8th of August and the 26th of October, and that will be your Solidarity Day(s). And you promise to donate EUR 1 for every kilometer completed: EUR 10 for a 10-km walk; EUR 20 for a 20-km run; EUR 50 for a 50-km cycle…or more!

Click here to register yourself with what you commit to do on your Solidarity Day. You can also email us a text, a photo or a video on and we will publish it on the webpage or share your video on FB #Korogochochallenge. Follow us on our FB Korogocho Challenge.

We will offer a prize for the most creative way of clocking up some kilometers, and a prize for the participant with the most kilometers completed!

You can then pay your donation (EUR 1 for every km you have completed) by making a bank transfer to:

North-South Cooperation / Bank account: LU98 0019 3555 9664 7000 / BIC: BCEELULL

Your donation will be tax deductible as we will send you a donation certificate.

Thank You for your Solidarity Day!
