The Distant Relatives Project is excited to announce that we’ll be traveling to Nazret, Ethiopia in September to partner with Feleg Elderly Development Association, an organization that serves as a nursing home for the elderly and their immediate families such as their grandkids. With extremely limited space, the organization is run by one nurse who is responsible for providing residential accommodation, health care, educational needs, food, and more. The DRP has committed to supplying medical and school supplies as well as making improvements to the facility including installing toilets and laundry machines. Help us achieve our goal by making a donation today!
Orange Villa Community, is a small underserved community in the capital city of Kingston, Jamaica. We wanted to impact the youth of the town by emphasizing on the importance of education. We were able to supply the entire 500 student body with school supplies and physical education equipment. The students that were exceeding expectations in their school were all gifted android tablets and backpacks.
The DRP’s Feeding Our Relatives Initiative will be hosting its first event in Jamaica this upcoming fall 2019. We will also be offering a two-day I.T (information technology) camp intended to expose students to the background knowledge of Linux, Coding, and Application development.
Honorable Abike Dabiri and the Africa Union welcomed The Distant Relatives to Ikorodu, Nigeria in the Spring of 2019. They assisted us in donating school supplies, laptops, and android tablets to over 900 students at AGA Primary School. Distant Relatives plans to renovate the physical infrastructure of the building to provide a more positive learning atmosphere. The students are also in need of computers and internet to gain access to information.
