The Jomo Kenyatta Foundation’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme is committed to supporting various initiatives, geared towards uplifting the well-being of the underprivileged in society.
In July 2022, the JKF fraternity joined hands in support of Tunyai Children’s Centre, Meru, a Community-based Organization that’s home to 170 orphans and vulnerable children. The staff managed to raise food items, clothes and books, an intervention that was quite timely according to the Centre’s Director, Rev. Julius Mungania.
“I am pleased to inform you that the food, in particular, has come when we need it the most, as we were just about to exhaust whatever reserves in our possession”, said a cheerful Rev. Mungania. He expressed his satisfaction that the children would continue with their studies uninterrupted.
We thank the staff for their selfless giving. It’s a gesture that has gone a long way in brightening up the faces of the youngsters, and giving them renewed hope. “We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.” – Mother Teresa.
