After having a successful fundraiser last week, our Care Pack food provision in response to the Covid-19 kicked off today. As a team, we’ve unanimously agrees to buy from local businesses and thereby achieve the following goals:-

  • Not to disrupt the lifestyle of our hand picked beneficiaries
  • Give beneficiaries the power to help choose items that they need
  • Promote local businesses
  • Teach our beneficiaries how to plan for meals and have a balanced diet
  • Show beneficiaries the art of giving back when they’ll be able to
  • Save money that would have been spent on packaging and transport

So, without much further ado allow us to share our first beneficiary and the additional lives that we’ll be touching for the next 30 days.

He is a university student who waited for two years before joining university. Being the first born, he is unique, loving, caring and humble. His ability to create a meal plan with us was a joy to behold.

By buying rice, cooking oil, wheat and ugali flour, from a shop managed by a young man, we ensured two young men were able meet and can network going forward.

By buying omena, vegetables, tomatoes and onions from two women, we made sure that money remained in the community. This is the trend that defines our work as we continue empowering our communities to provide local solutions to local problems.

By buying foodstuffs that our beneficiaries are used to we cause as little disruption as possible (Photo: Thomas Bwire)
