The more people who are interested and involved in Kupenda’s work, the bigger the difference we can make in helping children with disability access the care they need and live full, healthy lives. Hosting a fundraising party, dinner, concert, bake sale, silent auction, talent show, or wine tasting are all fun ways to bring people together to learn about Kupenda’s work and impact.

We have lots of experience with event hosting and can provide you with materials, videos and activity ideas and templates. We’d also be happy to come speak at your event and share our story and those of the children we serve.

We love to share the story of Kupenda and the children we’ve supported in leading full, healthy lives. These stories raise awareness about the global situation for many people living with disabilities and help generate support for the children we serve.

When we visit your group, our executive director, Cindy Bauer, will tell the story of how she founded Kupenda for the Children alongside her friends and colleagues in Kenya. She’ll talk about those we’ve helped and the work that remains and how you and your group can become involved in supporting children with disabilities. Most importantly, Cindy will listen to your story – what you feel called to and where your personal mission might align with ours. Our visits are professional, but also relaxed and informative. We encourage participants to ask questions and lead discussions on the topics that arise naturally.

Taking part in an athletic event is an amazing personal challenge and can increase awareness for Kupenda’s work and raise invaluable support for the children we serve.  Over the years, our supporters have run marathons, biked across America and even hiked hiked Mount Kilimanjaro to raise support for Kupenda!

We can support your event by promoting it on our social media sites, collecting donation on our website, speaking at your fundraising event and providing media coverage during and after the event.

One of the most important ways you can help children with disabilities is through prayer. At Kupenda, we believe in a compassionate God who hears our prayers and supports our work to empower children with disabilities. We invite you to join us in praying for Kupenda’s programs, staff, volunteers and partners. And most of all, we invite you to pray for the millions of children with disabilities living in our world – that they would be fully supported by their parents, peers and communities to reach their greatest God-given potential.

Musicians, writers, poets, potters, and many other artists can support Kupenda’s children through their art.
