meaningful gifts for kids in rural east africa


This holiday, give the gift of warm meals and essential education to children in rural East Africa. These children are hopeful, creative, and innovative, but the current pandemic has exasperated the need for quality education and brought to light the importance of food stability, especially in rural east Africa

Still, these children are eager to learn so they can pursue their dreams, strengthen their communities, and support their families, all they need are the basics to keep them on track. This holiday will you join us in giving meaningful gifts that will provide the support and tools they need?

By giving a meaningful present you can make Kipuyo’s passion shine.

Other ways you can give back!

Make your gift work even harder by making contributions in the names of other family members rather than giving gifts. Grandma may love knowing that she is helping someone rather than receiving another sweater. This is the impact of giving!

IN HONOR OF: A tribute gift can be the perfect holiday gift to show you care about an important loved one or issue they are passionate about.

Instead of only giving money around the holidays, you can show your loved ones they really matter by making monthly donations year-round. 

Giving always feels good, but it feels even better when you commit to a cause. Consider turning your holiday party into an opportunity to raise much-needed funds for a great cause.

VOLUNTEER: Giving your time is another great way to give back this holiday and make a huge impact. It doesnt cost a penny, and you can give your favorite charity some needed help.
