Since 2013, KIR Foundation has been hosting the Annual Charity Fair with the following objectives; to tell the stories of how the donations from our donors and partners have transformed the lives of our beneficiaries, to create awareness about our projects as well as to display and sell the items made by our beneficiaries with and without disabilities so that our beneficiaries can be encouraged to be more self-reliant.
The focus of the KIR Foundation Annual Charity Fair 2017 is the ‘EDUCATE A DISADVANTAGED CHILD PROJECT’. The donations from the fair, proceeds from sale of raffle tickets and exhibition stands and items will be used to provide disadvantaged primary school children in 8 rural communities in Nigeria and 2 Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camps with educational supplies like text books, exercise books, writing materials and storybooks in 2018. One of the major barriers to school enrollment and retention in rural Nigeria is the lack of educational supplies. The aim of the KIR Foundation ‘Educate a Disadvantaged Child Project’ in rural Nigeria, is to encourage retention and improved learning by mobilizing community support, providing school books, text books, stationaries, et cetera.
It would be our utmost pleasure to welcome you to the Keeping It Real (KIR) Foundation 5th Annual Charity Fair 2017. It is an open and free flowing event with a steady stream of guests coming in to shop as well as network with other vendors and guests.

I urge you to continue with us on the journey of transforming the lives of our beneficiaries who have not only increased in number, but have grown in their capacities and capabilities because of your sacrificial investment. Our theme for 2017/2018 fiscal year is ‘Strengthening communities through mutual collaborations’. We believe that through joint partnerships with various stakeholders we can make our communities of peoples resilient and better able to face their unique challenges.
