Troy, Mich. – BNP Media today announced it has donated $1,500 to KenyaRelief.org. The funds will assist the non-profit group in building a school cafeteria for children attending the Kenya Relief Academy in the Migori community of Kenya.
The existing kitchen was originally built to seat 150 orphans and now serves nearly 500 children daily during the school week. The primitive cooking equipment will also be replaced with new industrial, eco-friendly kitchen appliances, and seating for up to 600 people.
This is the first time that BNP Media has contributed to a KenyaRelief.org initiative.
“KenyaRelief.Org founder Steve James and our friend Dr. Luisa Di Lorenzo have shared with us the struggles of these children. It’s difficult to learn of the impoverished living conditions and struggles to simply be educated and eat a decent meal and not do something about it. They are so appreciative of what they already have, which is so little. This will really impact them,” said BNP Media co-CEOs Harper, Mitchell and Taggart Henderson.
BNP Media also donates to many local and global non-profit efforts, including the Gleaners ‘Hunger Free Summer’ program that assists in feeding children who, during the summer months, are not receiving meals at school.
Philanthropy and community engagement are core values at BNP Media, and the company supports organizations that help build a higher quality of life for individuals and families.
