Founded in 2007, One Heart exists to empower vulnerable children to fulfil their full potential so that the poverty cycle is broken. From humble beginnings in Turbo, Kenya, One Heart has expanded to now include a second Kenyan site, Soy, as well as two sites in Uganda – Bugiri and Naluya – and a new site in Tanzania.
Early on, One Heart’s founder Dean Landy recognised that solving the challenges of child poverty and the poverty cycle wouldn’t be as simple as just providing education. In fact, it requires a holistic approach that encapsulates education, healthcare, provision of food, shelter, and water, and most importantly a safe place for children to feel like they belong. So he set about creating a model of Rescue, Restore, Empower and Reintegrate that met all these needs.
With a unique focus on community and family, One Heart has successfully raised funds for hundreds of children over the last 15 years and are now seeing the fruit of their labour as children who came from dire, life-threatening situations are now graduating from vocational training and university, taking on leadership roles in the community, and even starting families of their own.
The generational impact they’ve always dreamed of is now becoming a reality.
The Run For Change experience takes place over nine nights and ten days, concluding with a two day safari through the Masai Mara, a breath-taking travel experience. Multi-faceted challenges will dissolve the boundaries you place on yourself and support you to make meaningful, tangible change for the world’s most vulnerable.

“There is simply nothing else that compares to the Run For Change experience!
Raising funds, training for a marathon, getting to know Kenya intimately – all these things pushed me out of my comfort zone but would do it all again in a heartbeat.
Highly recommend joining the team if you want to experience the ultimate inspirational and rewarding journey!!”David Steele – Past participant
