The Season of Giving Back is here!!
Thanks to your incredible support so far, Team RKF has been able to provide relief to students (and their families) who have been adversely affected by the closure of schools since mid-March when the COVID-19 Pandemic hit Kenya.
With more than 45,000 meals served and over 350 education packs provided to students, families in various communities across Kisumu County have been able to experience total savings of nearly Khs. 1 Million helping them pay rent, start small income-generating activities among others in these uncertain times.
This is the impact and ripple effect driven by your kindness, compassion and generosity!
And as we enter the Giving Season of 2020, GlobalGiving is making it possible to Move A Million Dollars in Incentive Funding on Tuesday, 1st December 2020 from 8 am for 24 hours (Kenyan time). When you make a donation on GivingTuesday to our COVID Project, RKF gets a proportional match of the $1M Incentive Fund!
What are we fundraising for?
The Rahul Kotak Foundation has been raising funds to provide relief to students (and their families) who have been adversely affected by the closure of schools since mid-March when the COVID-19 Pandemic hit Kenya.
Many students who relied on schools meals from RKF's Meals Program, have been hit hard since the closure of schools - no access to food and no access to digital learning forcing many to look for casual labour in unsafe spaces. Furthermore, there has been a sharp rise in teenage pregnancies as a result of period poverty. We are providing relief packs to 2,200 students and their families throughout the pandemic. The relief packs RKF will be providing are as follows:
1. Food Packs: Basic, Standard and Comprehensive
2. Education Packs: access to offline learning while schools remain closed
3. Sanitary Kits: year-long supply of pads and hygiene products for teenage girls.
Please take a minute to watch this video by our Co-Founder, Mansi Kotak, that highlights the past year at RKF and the commitment we are making in 2021.
