HKA and the High School Model WHO Club shared a booth at Pennington Day on May 20, 2017, to let the community know about our work in Kenya and to raise money. Net proceeds for the day were $296, raised by talented artists from the WHO Club raised who panted henna tattoos on many grateful customers, by students who ran a ring toss game for young children, and from general donations. Thanks to all who stopped by the booth to learn about our projects and to all the students and HKA Board members who worked at the booth.

The 8th Annual HKA-WHO Club Flea Market, held on the weekend of March 25 and 26, 2017 at Hopewell Valley Central High School, raised $2,850 to help fund our projects in Kenya.
