The third week of May had our social media platforms buzzing with the caption “something is coming”. This is to make the entire Still I Rise fans curious about what we want to unveil and yes it worked.
This week has been a very long one for team members as we worked and are still working towards serving you better. Regardless of our busy schedule, our emails were not abandoned. A total of five cases were tended to.
The sum of 70,000 was disbursed to a recipient for a business startup. This recipient needed to start a POS business to fend for her family after losing her job. Also, 20,000 was sent to a young man who had to run a medical test for a job offer he got; this money also included his transport fare to the venue where his interview would be holding. We do hope he secures this job.
Having a roof over one’s head is a priceless feeling even if there is no food to eat. The foundation helped a recipient with 35,000 to complete his house rent that was due for renewal.
Education still remains the best legacy even though getting a job afterwards could be difficult. 55,000 was given to help sort a recipient’s school fees and keep her in school. Also, 45,00 was disbursed to a recipient who newly got admitted into a university and needed to pay his acceptance fees. In the nick of time, he wrote to us and his case was handled at the 11th hour.
Today, the 24th day Of May will be a remarkable day in the Still I Rise Foundation. This is for a reason that I am not allowed to spill (I don’t wanna ruin a surprise).
Just keep your fingers crossed, with an open mind and expect to be blown away. Also, keep your eyes locked on all our social media platform for the long-awaited surprise to be unboxed.
We do hope this new phase touches you and drives you to donate, partner and also sponsor our cause.
Have an amazing week.
