Given the global pandemic COVID-19, Ngong Road Children’s Foundation (NRCF) and Karibu Loo Limited (KLL) are focused on preserving resources to the maximum extent possible. Our goal is to survive the economic downturn so we can continue to pursue our mission of educating children and transforming lives in the future. In the context of dramatically reduced levels of activity at NRCF and KLL, FoNR has made the difficult decision to streamline leadership and eliminate the Programme Director role which leads both NRCF and KLL. That means Maureen’s role has been eliminated effective 23rd March 2020. We wish Maureen everything good in her future and thank her for her work with NRCF and KLL. Maureen has made significant contributions to the organization.
