Last week on Saturday(15th November), we were invited to the annual The Kids Craft 2014 Charity event organised by the Supamamas, a mother and family oriented Marketing and Events Company, based in Nairobi.
This year’s event was held at The Carnivore grounds and it was in support for kids in Kenya with Cerebral Palsy , and all proceedings went to the Cerebral Palsy Society of Kenya, that’s working towards the improvement of the welfare of persons afflicted by Cerebral Palsy (C.P) in the Country.
We shared our tent with the awesome guys from the Yellow Sparrows Kids Club who nurture, boost, mentor and train kids through a Craft-based program integrated with ICT, recreation activities & even basic entrepreneurship skills.
Their program is fun, engaging & imparts life skills. Through encouragement, the kids learn that life is about process, growth & that failure is part of success.
Although soaking wet in the morning, the sun did eventually come up early afternoon and the kids started streaming into the various tents that were set up. The whole crew bared the rain, mud and freezing cold to get there early and set up, we get excited when we are about to meet new faces :-).
Kids don’t seem to notice the rain and cold when their excited to do fun stuff, I do miss my childhood i’m sure you do too. So anyway when we did start doing our experiments, the kids kept on streaming in..
One one of the stands they had some goat milk and we ask for a trade in. Milk for knowledge. We tried our colour symphony experiment with fresh goat milk!! And to no ones disappointment it worked! 🙂
We cannot emphasize how happy we get when we see their smiles when an experiment works out, it’s priceless!!
The event helped raise Ksh. 50,000 from donations and activities that will go towards Cerebral Palsy Society of Kenya.
CPSK is committed to championing for the rights of the afflicted through, Creation and enhancement of awareness among parents and the general public about Cerebral Palsy, provision of therapy as well as medical, educational and counselling services for individuals disabled by C.P to enable them realize their full potential and promotion of legislative policy and other measures to improve the welfare of C.P sufferers in Kenya
One such child who visited our tent was Mildred Kimathi. Brought in by his big brother, she brought so much vibrancy and smiles to the tent, and was definitely our highlight to this event.
It was definitely a day to remember, her smile tells it all.
Also thank you and Gob bless all of you came up to support this noble cause.
