Sadili Wins Second Chege Challenge Award!

Sadili Oval is very happy to be, once again, a winner of the Chege Challenge Award.

To commemorate the life work of Geoffrey Chege, CARE USA in collaboration with Nike and Global Giving, teamed up to offer the Chege Challenge for Sports for Social Change Initiative partners in East Africa in 2007. The Chege Challenge offers matching grants of $1000 for successful online fundraising.

Geoffrey Chege, a 25 year veteran of CARE, was killed in Nairobi in early 2007. Chege directed CARE USA’s programs in East and Central Africa and was committed to serving Africa’s poor and vulnerable. Chege was a strong advocate of gender equity and equality and believed that the SSCI was an innovative approach to reach youth. As we struggle to bring dignity and hope to the world’s downtrodden, Chege’s life and sacrifices continue to shape and inspire the people who knew him.

Sadili Oval’s Global Giving reference #1853: African Child Sport and Education Fund will receive US$ 1000 (one thousand). An additional grant will be awarded to Sadili Oval for having the highest percentage of unique donors.

Thank you all supporters, and thank you NIKE, CARE and GlobalGiving: this means that we can put one more talented child to special school!
