Imani Orphanage

Sunday January 28th 2018

Our good friends, Kim and Geo, are founders of the Imani orphanage in Kenya, Africa. They take in children from the streets who have virtually no hope in life, and give them not only a caring home and food but education as well. We all take computers for granted; yet most of these children have never seen a computer. That’s why, as a Christmas gift we provided the Imani orphanage with a computer lab – complete with laptops, software, printers, desks and chairs, and a teacher.

We sent our clients and suppliers a faux laptop box as a unique way to announce the plan of creating the new computer lab for the 92 orphan children in Kenya.

The kids of Imani Orphanage received their computers and had their first lesson on Saturday January 20th. They had new desks made, repaired the floor and painted the room. They also had a celebration party once the lab was complete.
