  1. Greatings,
    i have just bumped into your website and learnt about the East Africa Philanthropy Awards. I know it is already past the deadline for nominations but I am so much interested to take part in it.
    Iam 26years Male from Mathare Slums in Nairobi, Kenya. I run an initiative called “skipameal-Saveafamily” (skip a meal – Save a family). Basically i mobilize friends and well wishers to skip atleast one meal every week and at the end of the month we all bring whatever we would have saved from skipping meals. People bring food stuff or money which we use to buy more food stuff. We visit a few needy families in the slums and donate the food. We also support others needs like paying school fees and buying educational materials for needy kids. We started last year and so far we have been visiting atleast five families every month, also we have been able to take 4 kids to school, 3 to high school and one to primary school (this particular kid was born in the street and had been living there untill early this year when we came to his rescue. We got him a place to live and took took him to school.
    I wouldn’t say that its very big thing but atleast we are making some impact in the slum community. Kindly let me know whether there are any exceptions. Otherwise i highly commend your work in recognizing and rewarding benevolence. Keep it up and God bless you.

    Yours in the service
