Fashion for charity loading. The year is closing in. Some of us had it rough, some of us enjoyed the run and most of us had an experience of both worlds. Either way there is no other fulfilling way to end the year than in an inspirational fashion way. Enjoy some music, fashion, family bonding, socializing and know that it doesn’t end at the fun base, it’s all for charity.
All the proceeds will go to ILTARETO PRIMARY SCHOOL KAJIADO.
The show will be hosted at Sankara Hotel on December 12, under the patronage of ILTARETO and organizer Jim Karadimas in partnership with great sponsors and with the theme “ILTARETO Fashion for Charity”.
Access to education in Kajiado County is complicated by poor infrastructure, rural customs/tradition and circles of poverty. However, it takes the effort of just not the education officials or government but promise of change is seen majorly in the form of scholarships and local support.
The customs and practices limit the ability for children to explore their chances through education. The upholding of these practices such as young boys leaving school to be initiated as Morans or Il-murran (warriors), female genital cut and early marriages as a result of early pregnancies lead to these kids having to abandon schooling to become what is expected of them which is mothers, wives and warriors’ boys at a young age. These factors continue to promote a circle of poverty and illiteracy.
With how fast the world is moving technologically, illiteracy will be a major block and hindrance to growth. There is no place for illiteracy.
‘Many civil society organizations are tackling the issue of education in various ways, ranging from infrastructure, sponsorship and an increase in personnel to boost the current inputs by the government. Additionally, community sensitization through various channels such as Chief’s barazas, community forums organized and sponsored by the various NGOs and self-realization by communities as they interact with others, has really improved school enrollment.’ – credited
This event is one such initiative to add to the already plans in place to help these kids. What better way to bring people through this noble course than through what we all love and enjoy? Music, art, entertainment, fashion.
Improving education standards in Kajiado County is a work in progress and on Wednesday 12th we are giving you an opportunity to be part of this amazing contribution.
