Kawelle Ugly Sweater 3k Race

January 07, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

On December 15, 2013, Kawelle held their third annual Ugly Sweater 3K and Ciao Bella Photography was honored to have been asked to photograph the event!  Kawelle is NOT a charity.  It is an organization that is:

Empowering the poor with dignity and purpose, not charity

The organization is educating the people of Kenya and giving them technological tools to help them succeed in internet business needs on a world wide basis.  The center that has been set up in the village of Vumilia offers education for people attending the school and computers for local villagers to use!  This is an amazing project and truly "teaches a man to fish".  

The Ugly Sweater 3K was all volunteer run and so many people braved to cold to show their support for the project.
