NAIROBI, (CAJ News) – SAGE Foundation has partnered some organizations in Kenya in a move aimed to empower the disabled.
It has partnered with Compassionate Hands for the Disabled, a Kenyan non-profit organisation that looks after more than 80 special needs children from the impoverished Korogocho district in Nairobi, Kenya.
Sage volunteers are helping to refurbish the organisation’s community hospital – a process that involves painting and redecorating, and providing much needed equipment such as lockable cupboards and medical waste bins.
The South African Woman’s Association in Kenya will help manage the relationship between Sage and Compassionate Hands.
Ivan Epstein, President for Sage International and Chairman of Sage Foundation, said they were active in supporting our local communities- not only financially but through the participation of colleagues who were empowered to give to the causes that matter to them.
“We believe in a socially-responsible world and in playing a positive role in societies,” said Epstein.
Anne Njeri, Founder at Compassionate Hands for the Disabled, said they were proud to work with Sage Foundation and its volunteers.
“The help of partners like Sage Foundation is essential for our organisation as we strive to help disabled people to overcome their physical limitations and empower them economically and socially.”
