Bloggers Association of Kenya announces first CSR project

The Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) has announced its first Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project. The project is to start a library at Shadrack Kimalel Primary School in Ngumo. This project is in partnership with Grab-A-Book.

Grab a Book, the organisation behind the initiative, has already set-up one library. BAKE is partnering with them to set-up the second one. The first library was set up at Seedlings Junior School. It has 50 registered members so far and the children’s grades have improved by at least 25%.

Shadrack Kimalel Primary School is the project school BAKE will be involved with.  We are currently looking for donations to help make a difference in these children’s lives.

The cost of setting up a library is as follows:

i) 300 books to be bought at Kshs. 200 which amounts to Kshs. 60,000.

ii) 3 puzzles/games going for Kshs. 4000 which amounts to Kshs. 12,000

iii) 3 shelves going for Kshs. 12,000 which amounts to Kshs. 36,000

The total cost of setting up of the library is Kshs. 108,000. You can help support this cause by either making a monetary donation or by supplying books.

Book donations can be dropped at our office at Nailab, 4th Floor, Bishop Magua Centre on Ngong Road.

Monetary donations can be sent via M-Pesa to 0704 090 471.
