Thank You Tea with the Beta Alpha Psi Leadership Team

One thank you note, one hug, one hand-shake, and a pat on the back…truly...a show of gratitude goes a long way to appreciate those around us who have made a difference…
We wanted to thank the BAP leadership team for choosing to make a tangible difference in the lives of the girl-child in Kenya, to let them know that they have blessed the lives of communities in Kenya.
Statistics show that ,of the more than 110 million children not in school, approximately 60% are girls, that By age 18, girls have received an average of 4.4 years less education than boys and that World-wide of the more than 130 million primary school age children not enrolled in school, nearly 60% are girls.
By educating the girl child, BAP has broken the cycle of poverty that these girls would have faced. Today, due to the BAP – Global Impact project scholarship, 5 girls are currently in colleges and universities, in the fields of Business and Education. In 3-4 years these girls…will be economically empowered to support their siblings to attend school, to provide for & sustain themselves and to give back to community… THANK YOU BAP!

Imbako promotes use of the rocket stove as an energy efficient and environmental friendly mode of food preparation and water heating

A rocket stove achieves efficient combustion of the fuel at a high temperature by ensuring that there is a good air draft into the fire, controlled use of fuel, complete combustion of volatiles, and efficient use of the resultant heat. It has been used for cooking as well as space and water heating. It uses less wood than a traditional open fire, can burn smaller diameter material, produces less pollution and can be easily constructed from low-cost materials. It is well suited for the rural communities.

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day!

One of Kenya’s Chief environmental Concerns is Deforestation. At present, less than one quarter of the land remains forested, and an estimated 19 square miles are lost to deforestation annually. Imbako promotes tree planting activities in neighboring schools, churches, buildings and homes. The trees not only reduce soil erosion, but also concurrently serve towards building a greener community, improve existing local rain patterns and support local apiculture and agriculture...Happy Earth Day!

The Girl Child in Developing Nations still faces disparities in education, healthcare, sometimes..Choice. Creating awareness of the issue is one step towards addressing it. On March 12, 2011 Imbako Public Health,represented by  Dr.Irene Okech,  presented to the NBGSA on “The plight of the Girl Child in Developing Nations”. Issues facing the girl child in developing nations, and current and potential solutions were discussed. Also discussed were the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDG), with Special Emphasis on MDG 3:- ‘Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women’. Then the issue of cost came up...Is it ultimately all about money? Can you put a price tag on Gender Equality? Based on UNIFEM [United Nations Development Fund for Women], we see that ...” The price tag for Action may seem high, but the cost of inaction is far higher.”

The Global Impact Project - Kenya Fundraiser

So….graduate school is challenging; the workload is heavy, assignments are not easy, and so when it comes to course projects we may end up opting for the simplest ones; those that would not stretch us any further from our already hectic schedule. We may end up taking on a project simply to get a passing grade or to attain the needed credit hours …But, working with the Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) MBA students at Georgia State University, one can see that they are different; these hardworking students have chosen to go above and beyond and have devoted their time and resources towards a project that has stretched them further …they chose to work on an initiative that would have a positive global lifelong impact.
