Bon Voyage, Jackson!

Our President, Jackson, will be travelling to Kenya to meet with our team there over the next month. We wish him a safe journey and that his trip will be productive!

He will be meeting with and encouraging the children we are sponsoring to go to school, as well as those who are part of our school lunch program. He will be bringing much needed school supplies, equipment and clothing to the community.

A large part of Jackson’s trip will be speaking with the community in Butere, Kenya and listening and observing the needs that they have, such as clean water, sanitary latrines, school fees for children, hunger and poverty. We are looking for practical and sustainable ways that we can work to eliminate extreme poverty in rural Kenya.

We are excited to hear more updates about the difference that Kuamini has been making in rural Kenya. Stay tuned for recaps of his trip!

Exciting Milestone Reached!

Kuamini is proud to announce that we have received our official charity registration through the Canadian Revenue Agency! This has been a goal of ours since the idea of Kuamini first was created. This is an exciting milestone in our organization!

Kuamini began in May 2014 with a small group of educators and humanitarians who wished to make a difference in the world. Throughout the past year we have watched as our organization grew. We have grown in the number of our volunteers, our vision and our outreach in the community.

In establishing a new charity, we have had bumps along the way as we organized fundraising events and worked to bring awareness to our organization. But through each experience we have grown as a team and we have worked to meet our goals.

Being registered as an official charity is the first of many goals to be reached. We invite you to join us in our journey and see where Kuamini goes in the future!

Trip to Kenya

In less than one month, this beautiful family is travelling to Kenya. This is the Ombunga family and parents Jackson and Amanda sit on the Board of Kuamini. (see Jackson’s story in an earlier post!). The whole family is travelling to Kenya in December where they will be making lots of headway for our charity. They will be distributing mosquito netting, books and clothing and they will also be building a large community latrine while there. How exciting is that?

We can’t wait to hear about their visit and share pictures with everyone about their progress.
