Philanthropy before Profit: Choice International Jewelry Ltd. Supports Our Children

For most, Tuesday November 8th, 2011 was just a regular day in Nairobi. The traffic jams were as chocked as ever and as life is in any large city, the people were in motion for a routine day. It was normal for everyone but those at Twana Twitu.

It is not every day that we attend a ceremony as colorful at the one hosted by the Chinese Company, Choice International Jewelry Ltd., at the Ole Sereni Hotel. In addition to local media, the room was packed. A Chinese contingent, which included representatives from the Chinese Embassy, Chinese media and celebrities – including a famous Chinese model and of course the Guest of Honor Mr. Ren Wenbo who is the Chairman of Choice International Jewelry, were all present. They had gathered to support vulnerable children by providing them school fees and funding for food. With the handsome donation of Kshs. 500,000, it was Mr. Ren Wenbo’s goal to also support Twana Twitu’s sustainability so that the organization can continue to foster the development of communities in Kitui County. We are most grateful.

The event was very precise with a few speeches made by the Chinese Embassy representative, Shifan Wu, who shared that in addition to commercial, the Chinese People’s interests in Africa were of the welfare of it’s citizens. Shifun Wu expressed pride for the relationships forged with groups and organizations such as Twana Twitu that were helping the vulnerable members of society such as AIDS orphans. In Mr. Ren Wenbo’s speech, he gave a brief description of his company and how it utilizes local products in the manufacture of jewelry for their local as well as international markets. He also expressed appreciation for the opportunity to support Twana Twitu and stressed how it was just the beginning of a long lasting association.

Through his staff, Twana Twitu’s Chairman, Prof. Kiamba, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology expressed deep gratitude for the generous contribution by Choice, noting that through it, Twana Twitu would continue its good work in Mwingi. He lauded Mr. Wenbo, Choice International Jewelry Ltd, the Chinese Government and its people, and called for more Chinese as well as International organizations to follow the good example set by Choice International Jewelry Ltd.

After the speeches were done, Mr. Wenbo presented the Twana Twitu team, which comprised of John Mulingi, Naomi Mutune and Muthoni Mwangi with a check of Ksh. 500,000.00. In appreciation and recognition, Twana Twitu presented Mr. Wenbo with a certificate. The festivities were crowned with a fashion show, showcasing Choice International Jewelry Ltd. products and a delicious Luncheon hosted by Mr. Wenbo.

We would like to thank Mr. Wenbo for his generous donation and the difference it will make in our communities. Thank you, Mr. Wenbo! We additionally wish to thank the Kenyan media who supported us as well as our MC, Mr. Ngari Gituku and Ms. Seraphine Kiambuthi who made this gift a reality. God bless them all.
