prosource.it support a large percentage of the salary costs for our team of 5 staff, 4 of which are in Kenya and 1 in the UK. Their generosity has not only supported numerous children, installed electricity at the Pavilion Village children’s home but has allowed the foundation to go from strength to strength and support even more projects.
“We at Prosource.it are proud to be the principal sponsor of the Gathimba Edwards Foundation and delighted to extend our relationship with its Founder, Myles Edwards whose passion and enthusiasm has already made a huge difference to many children in Kenya.
“Prosource.it operates a culture of empowerment and this culture is mirrored in the work of the Gathimba Edwards Foundation, which aims to empower those least enabled to help themselves. The Foundation’s main beneficiaries are those people with no safety net and nowhere to turn and it aims to equip them with the basic requirements of life and offer them the opportunity to have and to craft a brighter future.
Giving a hand up to some of the most disadvantaged youngsters, the Gathimba Edwards Foundation’s work makes a real difference at the individual level and literally gives its beneficiaries the opportunity to help themselves.
Prosource.it is inspired by the work being done and wishes the Foundation every success in its efforts to make a difference to the lives of those less privileged.”
