Thank you from ICEF Canada

Thank you so much for your support at the Two-Step for Tekera event. With the help of donors, supporters, and volunteers we raised over $57,500!! The most we have ever raised! This money is enough to support our 34 staff, primary school of 250 kids, vocational trades school, co-operative farm, demonstration farm, micro finance initiatives, and medical clinic for an entire year. These programs serve over 10,000 people – so this is amazing! It will also contribute to helping make Tekera more self- sufficient. Through our partnerships with New Sun Road (Microsoft) and UC Berkley, this money will help build our digital solar micro-grid. This grid will allow us to launch a technology center at Tekera, teaching our community the skills they need for business and entrepreneurship, while increasing skills in communication, marketing, financial management, and building business connections. Additionally, this money will help us expand our commercial piggery – which aims to be our biggest money maker from 2017 onwards. Thank you so much for your support. Your passion and dedication to helping us make Tekera self-sufficient is truly inspiring. We are getting closer and it is because of YOU!
