BENEFITING: ALPINE INITIATIVES

EVENT DATE: Jul 02, 2013

Steven McNamara

THE STORY:

In 2008, Alpine Initiatives (AI) and International Peace Initiatives (IPI) embarked on a collaborative effort to create a community home that would nurture, educate and care for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Under this common vision, the Kithoka Amani Community Home (KACH) in Meru, Kenya was created. With support from the snow sports community, AI and IPI have worked in partnership with the local Kithoka community to build a kitchen, dining hall, volunteer housing and develop the surrounding gardens which provide food for the home.

AI and IPI now need your help to implement a new health and wellness program for the children at KACH. AI supporter and medical student Steve McNamara has developed a nutritional health assessment program that will be used by KACH to monitor the health of its residents. This program will be taught to staff so they can track children's health longitudinally and receive the proper knowledge and skills to identify children falling behind in important developmental milestones. Now all Steve needs to implement this new program is the necessary tools and materials, which is where you come in. 

Why Give?
Your Crowdrise donations will support this program by helping Steve purchase the equipment and supplies necessary to complete implementation and administration of this program.

How Much of the Crowdrise funding goes to this program?
100%. Yes, 100% of the funds raised through Crowdrise will go towards the implementation of this program. Steve has already worked very hard to secure other funding that covers the cost of his  travel, so every dollar donated through Crowdrise will go towards the items necessary for implementation and administration of this program.

On behalf of Steve, and everyone at AI and IPI, THANK YOU!
