The 3rd Annual Kenya Ceramic Project Winter Gala and Silent Auction on February 11, 2011 was a resounding success. The evening was attended by more than 160 guests who experienced original African singing and drumming. Kenya Ceramic Project was delighted to host the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry Dr. Philip Baker's introductory remarks as well as Deputy Minister for Intergovernmental and International Relations Mr. Paul Whittaker's keynote address. The theme of the evening, 'A Local Approach to Global Health', emphasized the effectiveness of KCP's evidence-based approach to international development and use of local physical and human resources. Our workers and managers in Kenya took the guests on a video tour of the filter manufacturing process and facilities. The guests learned about the science behind the filters as well as the project's progress over the past year from volunteers and members of the executive. Kenya Ceramic Project is humbled and inspired by the generous support of our donors that night, with over $15000 raised.

MSA Ventures is a brand new granting body within the Medical Students’ Association at the University of Alberta. It was started this year, with the goal being to promote and highlight the leadership, vision, and innovation of University of Alberta medical students on the local, national, and global stages.

In its first year, MSA Ventures granted $15,00 to worthy ideas and projects from medical students, of which the Kenya Ceramic Project was chosen as one of the marquee grants, at $3500. The criteria for the grant were as follows: an idea, experience, or ambition with the aim of inspiring action and perseverance in the fields of health and science research, innovation, arts and entertainment, which engages our school and our community, and/or motivates others to take steps towards academic, social, political, and personal change.

The Kenya Ceramic Project is honored to accept this award and looks forward to presenting at the MSA Ventures Symposium in April! Best of luck to the MSA Ventures team in the coming years!

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every year, the Kenya Ceramics Project runs a charity banquet called the Winter Gala where we have a series of great speakers, good food, and a silent auction. It is one of the major fundraisers of the year. Here we see a picture of last year's banquet organizers, Jess and Vickie. The night was a success, thanks to all those who helped out or came out!

This year we are once again hosting a banquet in support of the project. Please check back soon for more details!
