Rift Valley Children’s Village

Posted on Nov 14, 2011 in 2011 International Projects, GM Street Team, International, Kenya, News, Newsletter, Our Work, Uncategorized

Challenge Rift Valley Children’s Village is home to 70 orphaned children from newborn to 17.  Finding creative activities for children in a wide age range is tricky under any circumstances, particularly when we only had one day to bring all of the children together for fun. Solution The GoodMakers Street Team hosted a ‘Rec Day’ which was designed to entertain and engage all of the children and culminate in an end of day showcase.  The older kids really loved the DJ Boot Camp, and all of the children, including the volunteers and ‘house mama’s,’ enjoyed the dance workshop, which included a choreographed routine to the Kenyan pop song, ‘ African Child.’  A soccer tournament was also held, which many of the younger children enjoyed immensely. Impact GoodMakers filmed the entire Rec Day experience, including filming ‘a day in the...

“We The Change” Foundation

Posted on Nov 12, 2011 in 2011 International Projects, International, Kenya, News, Newsletter, Our Projects, Our Work, Uncategorized

GoodMakers filmed a short documentary for “We The Change” Foundation, a primary school located in a tiny room in the heart of the Mathare slum in Nairobi. Here is one version: “We the Change” Foundation aims to inspire and to empower individuals to be the change that they wish to see in the world. Visionary founder Soiya Gecaga envisions a world where millions of lives are transformed as a result of people working together as one united global community. In many ways, Mathare is typical of a slum environment with tin roofs, people crammed up next to each other, kids roaming unattended and a sewer running openly down the middle of the road filled with human excrement. On the other hand, there is so much life going on… Vendors selling chapati, fruits and vegetable stands, a mix of make-shift...

Alive & Kicking

Posted on Nov 10, 2011 in 2011 International Projects, GM Street Team, International, Kenya, News, Newsletter, Our Work

Challenge Alive & Kicking is located in Nairobi and makes Africa’s only hand-sewn soccer balls using an all-local staff and sourcing materials from local suppliers. Alive & Kicking has faced fierce competition in recent years, from large scale manufacturers, such as Nike and Adidas, who are able to offer soccer balls at a lesser price due to mass production using cheap labor in places such as China and Vietnam. Alive & Kicking is an amazing company that needed to increase their brand presence. The global customers would need to see the benefit of purchasing hand-crafted soccer balls from a company that employs a staff of 50 Africans and provides wages that enable them to pay for school fees and support their families. Solution GoodMakers shot a short documentary at Alive & Kicking, focusing on the craftsmanship that goes into...
