It has indeed been a good year at ANDY that finally wraps up, a lot of good things did happen and that means our impact in communities that we work in has been increasing day by day.
Different projects were implemented to help change the lives of youth with disabilities in Kenya, this is a success that we cannot take alone; all of you have been there in furthering this objective and we want to THANK YOU for the great contribution is has been.
As a young and growing organization, we wish to share with you in this journey as we get into the New Year to even do greater things that shall bring meaning to the lives of thousands of youth with disabilities in Kenya.
We request that you continue your partnership with us through supporting our various projects and encourage your friends, colleagues and family to consider joining hands with us to make a difference in the lives of those who are in need of our support to make it in life.
In this year alone, we were able to reach over 300 youth with disabilities and we know that with your support, we are able to surplus this number in 2012.
We take this opportunity to wish a prosperous New Year and look forward to working together to Make it Happen and Make a Difference!
Greetings from the team at Action Network for the Disabled, we are excited and greatful that you remain steadfast in supporting our work over the years thus enabling us make enormous strides towards reaching our goal.It is through your generosity that we continue to impact our community in a positive way.
ANDY being a grassroot organization,we have continuously remained in touch with the needs of our target group thus enabling us to make decisions that empower the community in the way that we work.Your support goes to someone who needs it and makes good use of it towards advancing their lives and becoming active participants in their communities.
It is in such cases that somebody came to us recently with a request for us to purchase batteries for his hearing aid having been turned away by different service providers.John just wanted to get the batteries for his hearing aid and he would be fine and ready to continue with his daily chores towards earning a living independently; through your support,a case like that of John is immediately supported and many more thus enabling the affected to continue with their normal lives even if they cannot afford these devices by themselves yet they cant live without them.
It is fulfiling to know that a simple act changes how one faces his/her daily life and is able to do a lot of things on their own despite being with a particular disability that poses a challenge to them in how they interact with others.
To enable us continue with this brilliant work,please consider making a donation to this project so that beneficiaries like John can receive immediate attention and support from the project,there is also an opportunity for your donation to be matched by Global Giving at 30% on June 15th 2011 between 12:01am and 11:59pm EDT(GMT-4)
Thank you so much for supporting our work and encouraging your friends to do the same.
We wish to thank you for your continued support to this project that has enabled us to continue supporting deserving persons with disabilities within our community.
One such case is John, who has had along challenge of communicating since he lost his sense of hearing, being a person who does manual work; John is supposed to be keen on what his boss says lest he loses his job for not following instructions.
This has happened to him many times yet he needs to have a steady income to support him and his family. He was referred to ANDY by another disability organization for us to assist him with a hearing aid.
Through your continued support, we were able to offer John the much needed help and acquired him a new hearing aid and on receiving it, he said, “ I am delighted to receive this aid as it means a lot to me and my livelihood I want to thank you and wish you all the blessings.”
This is how important the device that was donated to John through your support meant to him. He is now back to work and he can communicate effectively with his bosses at work and this will ensure that, he never loses his means of income by being unable to communicate.
On behalf of John, we wish to thank you for your support that has continued to change lives for the prosperity in the community we work in.
