Buy delicious cupcakes and support Tana River Life Foundation : Nov 2 2012

Thank you for supporting Tana River Life Foundation.

We continue our mission to raise funds for the Education Centre Project with the second Bake Sale of 2012.  The project aims to provide affordable quality education to the communities in the Tana River Delta.  Facilities include a kindergarten, a primary school, a community centre with library, computer lab, seminar rooms, meeting areas, designated areas to house income-generating projects for the foundation and offices. The buildings which are oriented to benefit from natural ventilation and lightning have been designed to be environmentally sustainable incorporating solar power and rainwater harvesting. This 3-year project will cost S$2,000,000. To-date S$700,000 has been raised.

We’re targeting to raise $3,000 which will be matched dollar for dollar by Jonaran Trust, based in Malaysia. $6,000 will cover about 27% of the cost of a classroom. 10 classrooms will be built.

Thanks to the mother-daughter team of Norliza Jalil and Maria Chung together with Oh Chew Khoon, we will be holding the sale on Friday 2nd November. Cupcakes will be the theme of this sale. Once again we thank Esther Wee of Halia Restaurant and Gina Choong of Kitchen Capers who will be sponsoring our ingredients and packaging materials & kitchen space respectively. All proceeds from this sale will go to the foundation. It’ll be great if you could order a box or 2 of cupcakes and support our efforts to help educate the young in Kenya.
