Dear Friends,

What a night!  We are still blown away by the overwhelming support and encouragement we received from you all at our first-ever, totally sold out, inaugural gala - A Night at the Library! Thank you all for coming to share this milestone with us.

A night of magic...
We set out to raise KES 3 Million in unrestricted funds for our operations in 2020 and are happy to announce that we raised a total of  KES 3,461,948.31 through ticket sales, raffle prizes and donations. Asanteni sana!!! 
This was in addition to the surprise announcement by Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi who announced Sharjah World Book Capital 2019's pledge to donate the funds needed to restore the McMillan Memorial Library! 
In case you missed it?
The event also presented an opportunity to gather data about your relationship with local charities. Thank you to all of you who took the time to complete our survey during the event. Here is a link to the survey for those who may have missed it.
