The Kinabuti Family would love to thank all donors, volunteers and sponsors who keep contributing immensely to the  6th Christmas party themed, “1000 Gifts For Kids At Orile” organized by The Kinabuti Team And Friends. With the money raised in the past year editions: doors, bathrooms and windows have been built for the school and with the funds raised these year, with a special thanks to Pepsi Nigeria who has supported the cause through the year in such a generous way, Oasis Spa and other silent donors, the other schools of Coker and Igamu community, there 6 Nursery and Primary Schools with about 1,000 kids in decadent buildings, the refurnishing will be extending to other schools. This would not be possible without the generosity of our volunteers, donors and sponsors.

On the 8th of December 2017, the annual Christmas party at Orile, an underdeveloped community in the heart of Lagos , will take place with thousand kids who would go home with beautiful gifts donated by SPAR, Dana Plastic, Pepsi, Vital Columbia, Sarsoli, La Taverna and Sympli. It promises to be a beautiful celebration full of educative and entertaining activities brought to the kids by the Eko Samba Community, WeCyclers, Maje and his HIIT, the Vama Wave Foundation, Lantern, the students of Unilag, and the Dare2Dream family who are volunteering.

The Eko Samba community is a non profit organisation working to engage and empower children and young people through creative arts, specifically Afro-Brazilian drumming with their projects based in the low-income, inner city are of Ijegun-Egba, Satellite Town, Lagos. At the Christmas party, the Eko Samba Community will be bringing some of their magic drums to the kids of the school and teaching the kids how to play them.

WeCyclers is a profit social enterprise that promotes environmental sustainability, socio-economic development and community health by providing convenient recycling services in densely populated urban neighborhoods. They will be bringing the knowledge of recycling and its societal benefits to the kids of Coker School in a fun, exciting and educative way!

That is not all! There would be more fun activities brought to the kids courtesy of Lantern, the leading publishers of children’s book in Nigeria; Fitness expert, Maje Ayida and the HIIT squad; and Vama Wave Foundation, a non profit organization led by a team of Indian ladies, with a vision to supporting charity based projects in Nigeria. What’s more? The Vama Wave Foundation would be building an inflatable bouncing castle for the children to play in!

A very big thank you to all sponsors for making this a reality. We at Kinabuti most certainly can’t wait for the 8th December 2017. It is going to be an unforgettable day with Father Christmas, food, fun and entertainment  that will leave smiles not just on the face of the children but also on the face of the organizers, volunteers and sponsors. 

The day would also serve to remind all of us that giving is not just the spirit of Christmas but one of the most beautiful and fulfilling things.
