Rain failed to dampen the spirits of buyers and sellers at Saturday’s second annual Treasures in Jars of Clay bazaar!
Treasures in Jars of Clay, the Special Needs program located at Kasana Children’s Centre, held the sale to raise money for their 2016 operational budget. The program works with 171 children who have various disabilities in the surrounding community. Fifteen of those children come to Kasana Children’s Centre four days a week to participate in the special needs class, five of whom live onsite at Hassan’s House.
Staff reported that this year’s fundraiser brought in 2,348,000 shillings of profit, currently about $690 or £455.
Members of the NHU community donated most the items which were sold at the event. Some also helped the Treasures staff to man the tables displaying different products. Buyers came in from the NHU family as well as the surrounding villages.
Last year, the Treasure program’s first bazaar raised around 2,200,000 shillings.
