Grant Impact Presentation: Kijiji Cha Upendo

Event Date: 09/10/2019
Location: WICC boardroom; 47 Queen’s Park Crescent E; Toronto, ON

Join us on October 9, 2019 1-2:30 pm for a presentation by Leonora Obara on Kijiji Cha Upendo (Village of Love), Kenya. Kijiji Cha Upendo Children’s Project helps women who are caregivers of orphaned and vulnerable children who have been either infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. A $4,750 World Day of Prayer grant helped provide 28 female caregivers from the Kibera slum of Kenya with small business start-up capital, mentorship and emotional support to create a sustainable income. Leonora is a well-respected social worker who has been brought to Canada on a number of occasions by several different organisations including the Stephen Lewis Foundation, to share her expertise. She and her husband Andrew have raised 10 orphaned children in addition to their 5 biological children. She’ll be reporting on the how your dollars have been spent and the impact you have made.
