The people of Sierra Nevada in the Northern California Extended Generosity to Kenya by partnering with Optiven Foundation in a forum held by the Faith Tabernacle Church – a multi-ethnic Christian church in west Los Angeles giving a smile to the differently abled persons.
Apostle Joseph Sakuda among other leaders of The Faith Tabernacle Church (http://www.wlafaith.org ) denoted that #MobilityThatBringsSmiles has given smiles to thousands of physically challenged persons in Kenya. He commended the initiative saying it is a positive transformation to society. The Church donated 10 wheelchairs to the cause.
The Chairman and Trustee of the Optiven Foundation Mr. George Wachiuri addressed Kenyans in Nevada and urged them to continue uplifting those differently-abled in our valued society.

Mr. James Mugo a staff at Optiven Group was among the many donors who have donated a wheelchair to Optiven Foundation. Mugo who is widely known as (James Ploti) spoke to Optiven Foundation, and had this to say: “You don’t need to have millions to touch a life. I dedicated part of my little salary to be going towards touching the life of the needy. The art of giving is Biblical, give whatever little you have. A life will be inspired with my little donation”. Mugo who is a renowned philanthropist is also one of the staff supporting the Soweto Children Home (https://www.optivenfoundation.org/newsandblogs/99-optiven-foundation-to-unveil-new-home-at-kayole-children-s-home )which is largely supported by the Optiven Foundation. Speaking shortly after receiving the donation, Optiven Foundation Chairman, Mr. George Wachiuri noted that it is such partnerships that are needed to bring smiles to our sisters and brothers who are living with disability. Here is what Mr Mugo had to say on his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=415749859257416&set=a.245180596314344&type=3&theater )
