To get a clear idea of what Restart does, and how badly it is needed, please watch the short film about us below, or the longer Channel 4 Unreported World documentary by Aidan Hartley.

Restart is the new name for the Sanata Charitable Trust, or Sanchat, a charity set up in 2008 by Mary Coulson in response to the desperate needs of the street children of Gilgil.  The charity’s motto, “Think not what you are, but what you can become”, underlines our belief that given the love and opportunity that Restart provides, our children will all have wonderful futures ahead…


Restart Africa is sponsored by the Sanata Charitable Trust (UK), and also partners with a number of other sponsors including Lift Up Africa.
