TRLF awarded income tax exempt status by the Kenya Revenue Authority

In recognition of its contributions to society as an Institute of Public Benefit, TRLF has been awarded income tax exempt status by the Kenya Revenue Authority for a 5 year period from 24th April 2013 to 24th April 2018.

This effectively means that:

  • TRLF has been officially recognized as a charitable institution in Kenya;
  • TRLF will be exempted from all tax on any income earned, e.g. interest, rent and business; and
  • Donations to TRLF by Kenyan taxpayers will be allowed as a deduction against chargeable income for tax purposes.

Cupcakes in aid of Emmaus Centre Project Tana River Life Foundation

Cupcakes in aid of Emmaus Centre Project Tana River Life Foundation

Thanks so much for your overwhelming support of our Nov 2012 bake sale. We had to close orders a week early, our apologies to those who missed out.

Thanks to you we exceeded our target and raised over $3700, more than 20% over target. As a result of the 1:1 matching from a private family trust, we have doubled the amount. All proceeds go towards the Emmaus Centre Building Fund ( previously known as the Education Centre Project) . Our gratitude goes to all of you, as well as our sponsors Esther Wee of Halia Restaurant and Gina Choong of Kitchen Capers,  the Chung family, Liza, Maria and Claire for their time and invaluable help.

We’ve had requests for pastries to be delivered on other dates. We’re happy to provide private bake sales for orders of at least $600. Please contact us at tanariverlifefoundation@gmail.com. As private sales are not sponsored, please note that we’d need to charge a little more for these orders.

Once again, thank you so much and we look forward to your continued support !

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.
