CEO and founder of the NGO, Philip Belcher said “We did the event yesterday to introduce ourselves and our mission to the community in Kokrobite.
” Our goal is to start our NGO work focusing on Kokrobite as a priority.
“Yesterday we spoke to adults and children on the beach. Then we moved into the town streets and spoke to community business owners, neighbours, adults, children and teachers. We wanted to hear from the community regarding what they felt is the biggest need for their community. From this information, we will organize our funding to target the specific needs of the Kokrobite community. We spoke with more than 300 individuals, handed out 200 brochures, and gave away over 1000 pieces of candy to the community children.”
