International aid charity, Esharelife, celebrated 2017 with a London Christmas party which raised just under £14,000 for one of its charity partners.
The event was hosted by Esharelife’s chairman, Dr Maurizio Bragagni MBA, at The Institute of Directors. Guests were invited to attend – and support one of the Esharelife Foundation’s charity partners, AVSI Kenya.
For more than thirty years AVSI has been working in Kenya to promote the development of local communities, working with the poorest sections of the population. The charity’s focus is on education and training in the suburbs of Nairobi, in Kibera, one of Africa’s largest slums, and in Dadaab, the most populated refugee camp on the planet.
All money raised during the evening was pledged to AVSI projects to empower disadvantaged children in Kenya and included a presentation by AVSI Project Manager, Antonino Masuri. Guests were also invited to take part in a raffle and auction to raise additional funds.
UK-based Dr Bragagni is CEO of leading global independent cable-company, Tratos.
