Help us Build Libraries in Kenya!

Donation protected
Who we are: 
Retouch is a non-profit organization founded by Chris and Jennifer Hadsell located on the coast of Kenya where they are committed to building schools, inspiring dreamers, & sharing the love of Jesus in the least likely of places.

The opportunity:
This spring, Retouch is raising funds in order to join in an incredible partnership with Books for Africa  that will allow us to build, stock, and fully equip our schools with TWO libraries just outside of Mombasa, Kenya.

Retouch needs YOUR help to accomplish this mission by April, 2016 in order to get the materials there on time!

The details:
Books for Africa has given us the amazing opportunity to partner with them and allow us to ship previously donated and purchased items (backpacks, soccer gear, chalkboards, and other educational materials) to Kenya for less than half of the typical cost!

Once we raise this money, BFA will ship our items in a 40 foot container, leaving room for up to an additional 22, 000 books that they will donate to us at no additional cost! Furthermore, this money will fund our set-up, renovation, and building costs for these two new libraries!

Each donor will be personally investing in the education of the next generation of Kenyans who we believe will fill roles ranging from teachers to politicians, parents to engineers, and architects to doctors. We cannot express fully the impact your investment will make in the lives of thousands of children and community members!

What if I give?
Each donor will receive a hand written note and a photograph of the new libraries in Kenya as a small momento of our appreciation.  For every donation of $100 or more a bookcase will be named after you! All donations are tax deductible. You're all rockstars!
