The Kinyua Ngeera Education Foundation presents: “The Father’s Heart: My Story”, a worship concert.
Why “The Father’s Heart”? We pay fees for bright needy students through High School (and develop leaders), not because we swim in monetary abundance, but because we understand the Father’s Heart (God) for the needy in society. With the little He’s blessed us with, we seek to bless others. That’s at the core of the gospel of Christ. Why “My Story”? Because each of us has a story… of where God took us from, of where He is taking us… a story of why we give, why we help, why we LOVE… the Salvation Story-the greatest love story. His abundant love is what drives us.
As God wills, join us at Mamlaka Hill Chapel on 5th May 2013, from 3pm – 5pm as we tell this story, as we worship the King of kings, as we raise support and create awareness on the Foundation’s initiatives.
Tickets go for KES 350 advance, KES 500 at the gate.
Ticket hotlines: 0704 099 462, 0720 241 300
What to expect: a beautiful time of worship, great music, poetry, dance… all brought to you by KNEF in partnership with some of the most gifted Christian artistes in Nairobi.Directed by Phillip Wambua, this concert promises to be one that you don’t wanna miss!
Proceeds from the concert go towards financing the Foundation’s primary objective; paying fees for bright needy students in high school.

Theme: Celebrating breast cancer survivors through fashion. The ‘Nairobi Haute Couture’ is a fashion show event that intends to showcase a collection of the latest innovative and out-of-the- box creations by local designers to a bespoke public. The event will also act as a platform for addressing some of the challenges and plight affecting the local fashion industry.
We aim not only to showcase designers collections but also create an atmosphere that would allow designers and people to interact freely while they hunt for great bargains in the exhibitors section. The event will also entail a red carpet session where 16 photographers will be taking photos, publicists, journalists, sponsors and the audience would have an opportunity to interact and express their views on Breast cancer, fashion and the show.

We would like to cordially invite you to a fundraising dinner, which we are organising for the Ruiru Rehabilitation Centre. The Centre is a children’s home, caring for orphans, street children and children from vulnerable families by providing them with a home and education.
We are raising funds to buy an Organic Greenhouse Kit (consisting of a greenhouse, seeds, organic fertilisers and pesticides and technical support), which would enable the Centre to grow all their vegetables and fruits themselves organically and under the guidance of a certified organisation. Apart from supplying them with food, the youth would be trained in organic farming and the Centre could sell whatever they do not need for themselves! A truly sustainable and worthy cause!
As you can see on the flyer below, the ticket price includes a welcome drink and three course dinner, as well as live music, courtesy of Brigitte Rakotomalala, a dance performance by Kebaya Moturi and acts by the acrobats and dancers of the Ruiru Rehabilitation Centre. The event is also generously supported by DJ RaveOlution.
