Less than 24 hours to the first ever Charity Festival in Busia County,
#ANFCharityFestival, BusiaLeo caught up with the host organization’s patron and convener of the festival; Hon. Ababu Namwamba.
Here is the patron’s message ahead of the Festival scheduled for Saturday April the 20th, 2019:
Easter is a holy moment that redefines our transition from a tearful Friday of suffering to a new week of smiles and endless joy.
The passion and resurrection of Jesus teaches us that suffering is transformed into a blessing through the Risen Christ.
The hosting organization
Ababu Namwamba Foundation (ANF) is a private charity that opens doors of opportunity and brightens sad faces with joy.
Charity, talent and income generation
This Easter, ANF is hosting the #ANFCharityFestival at the iconic Che’s bay in Budalangi, Busia County. The festival will be a platform to donate several items to widows, the vulnerable and the elderly.
It will also provide an opportunity for well wishers to nurture talents of the village folklore in the fields of performing arts, theater and education scholarship for bright but needy students.
In addition, the festival will offer guidance and schedule training on income generating activities for youth and women groups to further ANF’s goal of economic empowerment. our support in any of theses areas will go a long way in helping us achieve the foundation’s mandate of opening doors of opportunity to the less fortunate.
The festival will be graced by Bomet Governor H.E Joyce Laboso, ANF Patron Hon. Ababu Namwamba, EGH, Kimilili MP Hon Didmus Barasa, OWG, Youth & Public Service CAS Hon Rachel Shebesh, among other distinguished guests.
