Who we support
Alliance for Youth Development (Ghana)
Janeece Keller, founder of Katoka, spent three months of 2011 in Africa, one month of which was in Ghana. While there, Janeece saw the work that the Alliance for Youth Development (AYD) does and spent time with AYD’s founder Elvis Donkoh.
AYDs Free School Project aims to give orphans and other vulnerable children living in the Cape Coast area of Ghana, the opportunity to go to school for free. At Katoka we believe strongly in everyone’s right to education and believe that it is the key to unlocking communities from poverty.
The Free School Project will teach children valuable tools so they are better equipped once they leave school. The AYD will also provide these children with food, so they have a balanced diet.
The first stage of the Free School Project involves the construction of the school building. During 2011, Katoka has helped the AYD and their ‘Free School Project’ by contributing much-needed funds for school tables and chairs.
The aim of the Alliance for Youth Development is to “make sure the project reaches the most disadvantaged, vulnerable children so they have equal access to schooling and to provide hope and choices to children who otherwise would not have the opportunity”.
Cure Cancer Australia
Katoka’s founder Janeece Keller is passionate about supporting research into different forms of cancer because “it’s too hard to just choose one cancer research to support,” she said.
Amongst the Katoka team we’ve lost friends and family to a range of cancers and we’re proud to support Cure Cancer Australia as they fund young researchers across a range of different types of cancer. This way we feel like we’re supporting the fight against cancer as a disease and not just one specific type of cancer.
The other great thing about Cure Cancer is that you know where your money goes:
- $50 funds one hour
- $1,900 funds one week
- $7,500 funds one month
- $90,000 funds one year of vital cancer research
