Last year, Safaricom Foundation impacted thousands of individuals and communities with the philanthropic initiative Ndoto Zetu through which Kenyans were asked to share their dreams and aspirations and the foundation would step in to see the most deserving projects come to fruition.
Today the foundation has launched phase 2 of the overwhelmingly successful and impactful initiative which impacted at least 52, 473 people with over 300 projects implemented across 40 counties. The foundation pumped in over Kshs.30 Million towards this. Phase 2 has launched this afternoon at St. George’s Primary School in Ruiru – a school that has a wing for children with special needs like autism and hearing disabilities, and which was one of the beneficiaries last year. This second phase comes with the realization that Kenyans are very passionate about impacting the communities around them and sometimes all they need is some support.
In the words of Penihan Njoki for example who has been a beneficiary of, “Last year, though Ndoto Zetu, I was able to fulfill my dream of helping children with autism at St. George’s Primary in Ruiru thanks to the generous donation of teaching and learning equipment. For these 20 children, the equipment received has gone a long way in ensuring that their time at school is more comfortable and productive.
Kenyans who wish to participate in the second phase of Ndoto Zetu are required to nominate community projects that are within Safaricom Foundation’s focus areas of Education, Health and Economic Empowerment through written submissions on the Safaricom website using the link www.Safaricomfoundation.org/ndotozetu. They can also visit Safaricom retail shops countrywide and fill in an application form.
Submissions kick off on Wednesday, 5th February 2020 through to 29th February 2020 with the selected applicants being contacted directly by Foundation by 31st March.
Since inception in 2003, Safaricom Foundation has transformed the lives of over 4.5 million Kenyans with more than 2,000 community projects implemented.
