John Cotton: August 2016
Karibuni's Chair John Cotton writes, "We've changed our name! For some time we have been conscious that, unlike many charities, our name, Karibuni Trust, has given no indication of what we do. We think it should, and that could help us as we spread the word about our work. 'Karibuni' (meaning 'All are welcome' in Swahili) has been with us from the beginning and we want to retain it. But we've decided to replace 'Trust' with 'Children', reflecting the fact that children are at the heart of what we do. So our new name is 'Karibuni Children'. Our bank will accept payments using either name."
