Partners: Klothes4Kids (K4K) + Equinix
Project 1 - Ginger and Sol Badjie, founders of Klothes4Kids collect clothing and resources and ship them back to The Gambia. They visited the SIAB HQ on their round and we agreed to add 144 SchoolBags, 10 tables and some chairs to the consignment. The SchoolBags were handed out to children at 2 schools.
Project 2 – SIAB received corporate funding from the data processing company Equinix through their Corporate Social Responsibility program. The money funded 100 SchoolBags and to enhance their branding Equinix added a small teddy bear key ring with Equinix written on the scarf to each SchoolBag. These were given to mentally handicapped children who attend Methodist School.
Project 3 – SIAB will fund a 40’ container filled with donated tables, chairs, stools, computers, library books, resource books, clothing collected by K4K and SchoolBags. 67 of these have been funded once again by Equinix who have added more teddy bear key rings.
