Children’s Day: Photography & School Supply Drive

June 1, 2017 Social Responsibility

June starts with Children’s Day but at Koy Lab we want to make this month entirely dedicated to the little ones!

We are promoting a campaign to collect school and photographic material, together with the Art Kids Foundation for the program My First Camera.

Children in Kibera are in dire need of school supplies and this project we support is helping them through photography. Their parents are unfortunately not in a position to provide the quality and quantity of supplies needed. The lack of supplies negatively affects the quality of the education that the children receive.

Koy Lab has responded to these needs and is facilitating the donation of school and photographic supplies to this very deserving project. At the end of June we will send all the school and photographic supplies you help us collect to the Art Kids Foundation so that they can run the project My First Camera so that we can see what happens when we give children the opportunity to speak for themselves!

If you want to help us make a difference you can:

  1. Provide material: If you already have school and photographic supplies that you do not need (regardless of the quantity), please send them to us.  We welcome new and gently used supplies such us:
  • Cameras (DSLR and Compact)
  • Memory Cards
  • Laptops
  • A4 notebooks
  • Pens (blue and black)
  • Pencil
  • School Backpacks
  • Socks (for kids)

Address: Rua do Caíres nº 304 R/C, 4700-207 Braga, PORTUGAL
