Giving Tuesday and the Holiday Charity Challenge are global forces for good. Through the power of social media and word-of-mouth collaboration, millions across the world take this day and season of the year to align themselves with an organization looking to change the world for the better. We at Learn for Life Kenya have joined this movement, and once again are taking part in the Giving Tuesday/Holiday Challenge tradition. In 2016, Giving Tuesday catalyzed our ability to launch enterprises that are now key to Learn for Life Kenya’s success; this year, our focus is to expand these enterprises’ capacity and scale, further changing lives through economic development.
DONATIONS DO MATTER:
Last year, Giving Tuesday partners helped us reach our goal, launching a poultry farming business in Nyeri, Kenya. The farm serves as a model where good business and agricultural skills are taught. This year, our Giving Tuesday campaign focuses on expanding current social enterprises, the Bread Bakery and the Poultry Farm. Designed to teach marketable vocational skills, young people learn valuable business, agricultural, and leadership skills:
1) Poultry scale-up - Add 300 chicks to the current brood of chickens , necessary to offset the diminishing number of eggs laid by the older chickens, purchased Spring 2016.
2) New Bakery Oven - With a new commercial-grade oven, our Bakery has the ability to begin baking more bread, as well as add a new variety of items to be sold. With your help this Giving Tuesday, our Bakers will be able to produce cookies, rolls, scones, and more!
3) Entrepreneurial Program Enrollment - Learn For Life Kenya invests in young leaders. We will partner with Kenya Commercial Bank, a leader in the charge to build a robust economy through equipping young, motivated people with skills to enter the formal sector. Their program has a track record for success!
