Our Dear Partner & Fellow Philanthropist,
Optiven Foundation takes this chance to sincerely thank you forthe very Great Support in donating towards the “Feed One More” Initiative that saw over 10,000 hungry deserving fellow citizens in 4 different counties in Kenya in Samburu, Kajiado, Laikipia and Nyeri, among others take home a well nutritioned meal. “Feed One More” Initiative by Optiven Foundation was officially launched on the 13th February, 2017 by the Foundation Chair, George Wachiuri , together with our Board of Trustees who contributed Kshs 2,000,000 (Two Million Kenyan Shillings) towards this great and noble initiative.
In the battle to fight hunger in the country, on 13th February 2017 Mr. George Wachiuri, Chairman of Optiven Foundation launched the “Feed One More” initiative. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees contributed Kshs.2,000,000 (Two Million Kenyan Shillings) with regards to the initiative after the Chairman made a call for action to all Kenyans to partner with National Drought Management Authority to give relief assistance to those facing starvation in parts of the country. The food insecurity resulted from drought due to the short rains and the drying up of rivers in a section of the country.
Millions of children across the developing world are not in school and thousands more may never have the chance to attend. This has a serious impact on their future, as education can break the cycle of poverty, leading to more opportunities for them and their families. This has been the trend for a couple of years, and still continuing to be. The act of helping the helpless is not a suggestion, but one’s Christian duty. James 1:27 says, “Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you”
