“I don’t think you ever stop giving. I really don’t. I think it’s an on-going process. And it’s not just about being able to write a check. It’s being able to touch somebody’s life.”
Wandia Gichuru the CEO of Vivo Active Wear and her team requested the public to drop books donation in their stores. Kenyan readers came out in large numbers and we were able to collect around 400 books and 500 magazines.
Bellapace books contributed 200 books to top up on the contribution from the public. A team from both organization and they were very excited. The books comprised of fiction books, cookbooks, biographies and business-related books. A greater number were technical books that will equip the women with skills that they can apply while in prison as well as when they leave the institution.
Through the book drive, we believe that we gave them a place to go when they have to stay where they are.
