This year we endeavored to have more impact with our projects targeting the most deserving of help within our community. We found Mary Faith Rescue Centre in Dagoretti, Nairobi; which provides a safe haven for girls who have been victims of sexual abuse and violence.The home currently hosts 62 girls and children with 24 of them in high school.
The biggest need for Mary Faith was food and medical expenses as they rehabilitate and restore the dignity and self-esteem of the girls. We decided to support them, by raising money through our quarterly 'Party for a Cause' dubbed Pink Clouds held on 24th March 2018 at The Tav, Westlands. This 4th edition was headlined by G-Money and saw over 400 people attending to be part of the movement.
The proceeds from the event helped us host the first PAK CookOut at Mary Faith on Sunday 8th April. We teamed up with Mandi Sarro of Miss Mandi Throwdown and The Tav Irish Pub & Eatery. We also got to share our experiences and mentor the girls with support from Adelle Onyango who was gracious enough to come and spend time with them.
Aside from the meal we shared on the day, we were also able to donate
30 Ltrs of water
35 Kgs of Rice
24 bales of Maize flour
100 Sanitary Towels
30 Ltrs Cooking Oil
100 Diapers and 100 Sanitay towels
Matchsticks, Knives, Mwikos among other kitchen essentials
Scholarships for our angels
In partnership with Inspire Spaces, we gave scholarships to Mary Achola and Doris Chebet, who have consistently attained B+ and above but didn't have any support for their fees.
We also sponsored studio sessions for Mary Achola and Anna Paula who form the musical duo AP Wonder, to record their next single as we seek to harness the potential they have shown.
