A Shout Out for Sponsors

On Thursday, October 27, the Nzirambi Education Fund will be hosting a photo exhibition at Pikto Gallery in The Distillery District, Toronto. More than 150
people are expected to attend this special event to show their support for the 85 boys and girls at the Nzirambi Orphans Talent Development Centre in Uganda.

The photo exhibition includes the work of Toronto photographer Brian Pieters who recently travelled to the orphanage. Through his images, we aim to introduce our supporters to the children whose lives they are making a difference in.

In addition to the photo exhibition, there will be a silent auction with 100 per cent of funds raised going to the Nzirambi Education Fund.

I hope you will consider showing your support for Nzirambi Education Fund as well, by offering an in-kind gift.

Your gift now will go a long way towards helping us reach our goal to raise $10,000
in 2011 so that we can ensure the children at the orphanage will be able to attend senior levels school.

Higher levels of education are especially critical for these children, giving them additional resources to become leaders in their communities and break free of the cycle of poverty that has defined their families for far too long. Your support will help these children so that they may be the next generation of smart, productive and well-educated Ugandans contributing to the future of their country.

We are anticipating that approximately 150 people will participate in this event and are asking for your support as a silent auction donor or food and beverage sponsor.

For this year’s silent auction we are looking for items with approximate values between $50 and $300 that would appeal to our event attendees. Examples of appropriate auction items would include: toys, electronics, restaurant certificates, travel vouchers, health and wellness items, art or house wares.

To offset costs and ensure we can raise the maximum amount possible for the children, we are asking for your support in providing food or alcohol for this event.

All sponsors for this event will be recognized through name or logo recognition on our day of event signage.

With your help, we can continue to inspire hope for children of the Nzirambi Orphan Talent Development Centre. For more information about our cause, please contact me at
