Every year, since 2003, we have been carrying on a humanitarian mission, with the donation of part of Tenuta Casanova’s proceeds to the struggling families in Kenya’s bush, specifically in Maraffa. The harsh life of the population in this part of Africa touched our hearts and it has become our mission to do what we can to help, with a focus on education, because it is with education and school that you can build the future.
Thanks to the help of our visitors, with the donations and the orders for the products of the farm, we have been able already to complete the primary school for our children living in the mission, and, in November 2016, a hospital serving all the people of the village. Now, we are continuing to build the secondary school and the Children’s Home for the orphans of the mission.
Rita and Silvano visit the foundation every year, to bring the new donations, to see the development of the construction works … and of course to see those beautiful children and their families. Their smiles and the joy in their make the effort worth every sacrifice and hardship.
We know that it is just a drop in the ocean, but we hope to continue to increase our contributions – thanks also to the support of our customers, who donate to the cause by buying our products donate. It is our dream to make our mission in Kenya grow so that we can bring smiles to as many faces as possible!
So thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to everyone of you that has already and will contribute, with donations or by buying our products : the smiles of these children and the possibility that you are giving them fill us with joy every day.
