Lily Claire is a company that gives 100% of its profits to charity. When you purchase a Lily Claire Bag you are supporting the youth in the slums of Kenya through the Boran Children’s Education Center.
The Boran Children’s Education Center was designed to take care of slum children between 1 and 16 years old. It's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and educate the destitute children who are often neglected, abandoned, and living in the streets.
The project is situated in the economically deprived Huruma / New Mathare slums area where poverty, HIV/AIDS, unemployment, illiteracy and social-economic infrastructure is severely lacking. This results in the neglect of sick children, the breaking up of families, and a growing number of AIDS orphans.
The Boran Project offers early childhood education in the community. Plans are underway to initiate income generating activities such as micro-finance schemes to empower women both socially and economically for self-sustainability purposes.
We are traveling with The Lily Claire Project to visit the Boran Children’s Education Center. One of our goals for this trip is to see the school and love on the kiddos. But, we want to get a better understanding of the conditions of the school and learn how we can continue to aid in meeting their needs when we return home.
We need you for a couple of things. Of course, we would LOVE for you to pray for us as we venture on this journey to Kenya! It will be the first time to Kenya for all of us and we know there will be unexpected joys and trials along the way. We also know that the Boran Children’s Education Center is in need of water barrels to supply the kids with hydration while at school. One water barrel is 500 liters and costs about $600. The school also needs tablets to enhance the education for the children. These are $40 each and we have a goal of purchasing 55 tablets for these kids. All of the funds raise tonight will go toward these two causes specifically. You can also sponsor a child at the Boran Children's Education Center for $40 a month. Find us for more info!
