About Nyumbani
Nyumbani UK works to provide HIV and AIDS affected children in Kenya with the best nutritional, medical, educational and psychosocial care. It does this through three distinct projects: a slum outreach program called Lea Toto in Nairobi which helps 3,000 children, the Nyumbani Home that supports 100 children and finally the Nyumbani Village that provides care for 1,000. At the very centre of village life are the Hotcourses Primary School and the Lawson High School.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
