Mama Sarah Obama Benefit

Event Overview

Peace December International will be hosting a black-tie benefit for the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation (MSOF) in New York City. The goal for this fundraiser is to secure support for MSOF, whose mission is to improve the education and welfare of disenfranchised children in order to help them successfully achieve their goals and have a better future. Specifically, the monies raised will accelerate efforts to build of a school in Kongelo village in Kenya to provide early, primary, and secondary education. The total amount for the completion of the school is an estimation of $2.5 million USD. Our goal is to secure a minimum of $250,000 so that the Foundation could lay the school foundation and complete the First Grade (Primary School). MSOF's vision is a world where children are nurtured and supported physically, educationally, and emotionally to thrive and succeed in life.

With the AIDS epidemic ravaging sub-Sahara Africa in the last three decades and leaving many children without parents, Mama Sarah Obama turned her attention to addressing the educational and welfare needs of orphans in Kogelo village. She used her own resources and relentlessly worked with community leaders to meet the dire needs of these orphans. In 2009, the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation was formed.

Mr. Said Obama, President Barack Obama's uncle, will be the keynote speaker. We will be bringing together a variety of supporters as well as inviting a number of relevant dignitaries and officials of goodwill to make this event a special celebration in honor of Mama Sarah's achievements and goals for her community, country and Africa at large.
