The Art of Giving
“Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others since giving is the highest expression of potency. Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the art of giving lies the expression of aliveness.”
On Saturday 22nd September 2018, Strathmore Marketing Club (SMARK’T) was out sharing its love with the family at Brydges Centre in Isinya on its inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity. On arrival the warm welcome touched each one of us and the home was beautiful to behold from its well-maintained lawns and clean compound.
The Brydges Centre, located near Nairobi, Kenya is a children’s home that cares for the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of orphaned, abandoned and abused children in Kenya. The Centre is home to one hundred and thirty-two children. Seventy-five live in the dormitory while the older students are in boarding school, university, or life-skills training. The centre’s mission is to provide destitute, orphaned and poor children with shelter, education, and training to become self-reliant and skilled in the future. They believe that all children need to belong to someone who will give them faith, love and affection.
Members of the Marketing Club took part in activities such as cooking, washing clothes and slashing grass. They further engaged the children in fun and games as well as an entertainment session from the Marketing Club members. The children also showed their musical prowess and impressive dancing skills. At the end of the day, the club presented its donations to the home which were received with appreciative smiles. This art of giving was one in many that Strathmore Marketing Club will participate in.
