BENEFITING: KAGENO WORLDWIDE

THE STORY:

KAGENO WORLDWIDE INC wrote -

Kageno has two nursery schools in Kenya and a third in Rwanda. There are over 700 kids in these programs and we currently only have funding to care for 183.

To put things into perspective, one out of five children in Rwanda will die before they reach age five. We need to raise enough money to get 517 kids involved in our programs. Our programs allow kids to eat at least one nutritious meal each day, have access to healthcare and to go to school in a safe, clean and nurturing environment.

It costs us $60 to embrace the kids in our community. So, we need to raise $31,020.

We're reaching out to exactly 517 people and asking 'em to donate $30 and raise another $30 from friends and family.

Please help us in our relentless pursuit to give these kids a chance to survive to age five.

To do this, please join our team and donate $30 to Kageno in support of this effort.

With your help, we can make this happen and SAVE LIVES.

Thanks so much for the donation. We just returned from Rusinga Island and Kageno is doing really great things. They have a plant nursery and plots of land with good soil where the locals can have a garden that will feed their family, with more to share or sell. They are growing corn, beans, papaya, passion fruit and much more. It is a great start and very sustainable. All Eco-friendly.

They also have a goat program and are increasing the population of dairy goats. Those families who have the goats are much healthier.

The money you donated will go directly to feed the nursery children porridge and purified water. Many of these little ones are arriving without being fed. Some are near orphans or orphaned.

Kageno has a sponsorship program and part of that money was covering this need. With the economy woes, so many sponsors dropped and this feeding program suffered.

The money will be well spent.
Thanks again.

DONATION: $20

The more and more I live, the more I cant get sustainable farming out of my mind. The UN reports 71 trillion have been given to Africa in the last 30 years for food and aid. Could you imagine if just 1% of that was given to create farms? We need to change the way we look at poverty. Solutions by the world all assume basic infrastructure. If we could just create farms so people could feed themselves poverty would change so rapidly!!!! I know it’s only $20 today but there is more to come soon!!!! 9 years ago
