You went above and beyond in 2016

It’s highly unlikely we will be forgetting 2016 any time soon. Politically, socially, economically, it has been a year of momentous change, yet, at Kupona Foundation, there was one constant: your support for people and communities in Tanzania.

You were creative, generous, and you changed thousands of lives. You unlocked opportunities for some of the poorest and most marginalized people in Tanzania, and gave them access to the high quality healthcare they needed and deserved.

In 2016, you donated dollars, time, and photos to help people like Selina. You gave healthcare workers access to critical training and mentoring, and helped us to renovate and equip healthcare facilities. You hosted pasta dinners, golfed for good, purchased handmade items from The Mabinti Centre and artwork from the Drawing Out Fistula Exhibition. You even climbed Mount Kilimanjaro! You attended and supported cocktail receptions, meetings, and mixers. You raised awareness, and shared our story on social media. You were a passionate force for good, and we are so grateful for your support.

Your gift is more than a donation. It’s a life changing surgery, a first consultation, a healthcare worker trained to deliver high quality care. It’s a child’s restored sight, an expectant mother’s peace of mind, a baby born with clubfoot who will be able to run and play. And that’s why we’re asking you to join us once more for a final push before 2016 comes to a close.

Here are a few examples of what your generosity can do:

  • $67 provides an hour of training for a maternal health team, equipping them to give high quality care to expectant mothers and their newborns.
  • $160 provides clubfoot treatment for one child, allowing him to run and play.
  • $300 restores a child’s sight, allowing her to go back to school.

A one-time or recurring gift can be made through our website, or by mailing a check payable to Kupona Foundation to our mailing address below. Don’t forget to amplify your impact by asking your employer for a match.

Join us, and close out 2016 with the gift of hope.
