During the handover ceremony LG Electronics East Africa Managing Director Dong Won Lee said, the initiative aims to empower social groups to create sustainable change and foster self-reliance within their respective communities.
“We are thrilled to witness the fruition of the LG Electronics Ambassador Challenge as we hand over the completed projects to Vonde Welfare, Kenya Women and Children Centre, and Little Voice Deep Within. LG believes in the power of technology to transform lives and communities for the better. Through this initiative, we aim to empower these organizations to create sustainable change and foster self-reliance within their respective communities,” said Lee.
The LG Electronics Ambassador Challenge for the year 2023 was a success, and three organisations emerged as winners: Vonde Welfare, Kenya Women and Children Centre, and Little Voice Deep Within.
Vonde Welfare representative James Kalulu Muthoka highlighted the receiving of eighty, 5,000-litre water tanks will offer a quick solution to water challenges facing Makueni residents from the Vonde area in Mbooni Sub-County.
“Currently, the area is characterized by inadequate rainfalls, hills and a very hot environment. The residents use the seasonal streams down the hills which are 5 kilometers from the village. When they find the water, they carry it on their backs since there are no donkeys or camels in the area,” he said.
Last year, three groups from Nairobi, Kiambu, and Kajiado counties won the challenge.
