About Impact Kenya-Shangilia

Impact Kenya-Shangilia provides educational opportunities and basic necessities to over 60 vulnerable children every year.

Who We Help

Impact Kenya-Shangilia is meeting the basic needs of shelter, clothing, food, and medical care for orphaned and abandoned children in Kenya, as well as providing brighter futures and opportunities for these children through education.

What We Do

At Shangilia Children’s Home we emphasize the importance of education as a step towards independence and self-sufficiency, and ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty. School fees, uniforms, books, and other educational resources are a large portion of ongoing costs for children to receive elementary and secondary education. Shangilia means Joy in Swahili and children here are able to live joyfully through the many games, birthday parties, and songs that are sung here.

Almost half of the children at Shangilia Children’s Home are above the age of thirteen. Another project to ensure that these children lead full and successful lives after leaving the home is called Fanikiwa. Fanikiwa means to be successful in Swahili and this project helps to get graduates of the children’s home set up to live a full and prosperous life through mentorship, entrepreneurial training, post-secondary education, and financial guidance.

The Non-Banquet

Why a non-banquet?

  1. You will be able to experience the joy of supporting our amazing staff and kids without taking any time out of your schedule.
  2. There is no overhead with this fundraiser. None of the money raised will be spent on food or venue.
  3. If you provide us with your email address when you buy your ticket, then you will receive a digital video updating you on the work and ministry of Shangilia Children's Home. It will be sent to you on the date of the non-banquet. A cool video presentation that you can watch at your leisure.
  4. You are able to enjoy whichever music you choose during the non-banquet simply by turning on your entertainment system and playing the recording of your choice.
  5. Attendance is unlimited. We'll email our total attendance on the night of the non-banquet.

 

What will you receive for your donation?

  1. The awesome Menu
  2. An email thank-you containing our latest Shangilia Video
  3. A virtual seat at the one of the virtual tables
  4. Announcements about the event including total attendance, amount raised, and the size of venue we would have filled had this been a traditional banquet.
  5. A really warm feeling in your heart since you will be providing for the needs of many wonderful children over the Christmas season.

 

What are some options other than simply choosing a meal?

  1. You are free to purchase multiple seats or even a whole table (8 seats) so that you and several people you know are able to not attend together.
  2. Tickets to the non-banquet make great Christmas gifts for those hard to buy for relatives.
  3. Look up the recipes online and create the actual food for yourself, friends or family.
  4. Become a host or hostess and help us distribute and sell tickets to the non-banquet. Simply click on Start > Fundraise for Our Cause, enter your goal, and you’ll have your own campaign to share with your networks in minutes!
