As co-founder of our new and exciting "4Africa" NGO in Kenya, we are seeking donations to fund our third project... 2 new classrooms for Tankini Primary School.
As a photographer, and driven by a vision to seek new and exciting ways to fund-raise for these projects, I am delighted to offer a selection of my best Kenya images here. I have arranged a new supplier who will produce these high quality products to maximise the profits... ALL OF WHICH WILL GO TO 4AFRICA PROJECT 3.
I stress, I am not making any money from these. We take the cost of printing and postage (free in Ireland) and donate 100% of that to the materials required for 2 Primary School Classrooms:
Where it goes:
The aim of this Non-Profit Organization is to provide critical infrastructure to rural communities in this harsh region of Kenya. Critical infrastructure comprises schools, water access points, medical facilities and facilities to improve access to food. Research is currently being undertaken in the Taveta area to determine which facilities exist, in which community and what the priorities are for the communities in this region. This research will highlight those facilities required to improve access to basic human needs such as water, food, medical care and education. We will then endeavor to fulfill these community requirements through fundraising, field work and capacity building programs. “4frica” is a temporary name which we will operate under for the foreseeable future until an official name is set. You can read more about who we are here.
At 4africa.info we are passionate about getting our donors and sponsors as involved as possible. From the very beginning we want to set up and develop a transparent NGO that sees 100% of your personal donation go direct into the field project. No cuts for fees, admin or salaries. But more than that, we want to be able to reflect exactly where your money goes and more importantly… how far it goes.
So to try and convey this we have built a “Donation Shop”. By taking the project budget and itemising items that are appropriate for personal donations. Every item online is set to “sell out” when we have reached the required quantity. The money then raised for such items will be set-aside for just that. Now, if you donate $30 then we can't show you the exact bag of cement that you “bought” but we can guarantee that out of the 200 bags that we require you supplied 3!!
The shop is designed to reflect a range of donations, and all are key materials vitally needed to provide the “building blocks”… literally… for the project.
Check out our last project... the construction of 2 classrooms to start a Primary School in Kenya...
