In 2019, Kiwimbi will host our fifth annual benefit or “Karamu”. Karamu is a Swahili word meaning “party’ or “celebration,” and this year we have lots to celebrate! Our past Karamus have raised over $300,000 dedicated to providing opportunity through education. These funds enable people, especially children, in rural African communities to work their way out of poverty. Our mission inspires diplomatic, corporate, educational and grass roots community members to join the party and support this vital work.
This year’s Karamu will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2019, at The Thomas H. Kean Theatre Factory, the behind-the-scenes home of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey. The evening event will feature a Kenya-inspired dinner, live auction, and African music – this is not your typical gala!
Corporate sponsorship is critical to the success of the Karamu, covering the event’s operating costs and more, thus ensuring that more money goes to our programs in Africa. We offer various sponsorship levels, each with specific benefits, as outlined in the attached description. We would, of course, be very grateful for any amount that you choose to contribute.
