Fashion Power 2018
Coverdale Center for Women caters to the needs of women struggling with poverty, homelessness, abuse, addiction, physical and mental illness. Women faced with difficult situations access Coverdale services for a variety of reasons at different stages in their lives.
One of the major challenges of the center is the inability to provide the required funds for women who are willing and ready to transition to rehabilitation centers.
Through the fashion show, we intend to raise funds and a greater awareness about this cause.
We all have the power to create change and empower others when we tap into the well of empathy. Statistics show that strong and free women raise healthy children, run functional homes and ultimately, build a better society.
Join us for a night of fun and networking for a cause. Highlights of the event include fashion show, African dance performance, and light refreshment.
Tickets @ $15 each

2018 School Uniform Drive
Overcoming Barriers to Education, One Uniform at a Time
For many families across the world, the month of September is often welcomed with mixed feelings. Many kids from comfortable homes are excited about the prospect of going back to school with new uniforms (or school clothes) and school supplies. However, for most underserved children and their families in Nigeria, it is the dawn of another nightmarish school year characterized by an endless ridicule from their peers as they strive to replace their worn-out uniforms by undertaking odd jobs and hawking items on the streets for their parents.
Public schools in Nigeria are free through the Universal Basic Education program of the government. Nonetheless, other mandatory associated fees and the cost of school supplies take its toll on underserved pupils prompting them to seek alternatives means of raising funds if they must remain in school.
The girls are more vulnerable because if they escape pedophiles and near-miss accidents, it’s only a matter of time before they drop out and/or become child brides.
In an effort to guard against these inhumane circumstances for the girl child, Kaima Designs embarked on a Uniform Drive to benefit female pupils of Durumi Primary School, LEA Abuja, Nigeria. Through the generous support of Kaima Designs clients, friends and associates, 100 beneficiaries of the initiative were presented with brand new school uniforms, pairs of stockings and sandals during a one-day seminar tagged ‘Overcoming Barriers to Education, One Uniform at a Time.’ This was a one-day seminar organized by Daniel Stephen Child Foundation as part of the organization’s mentorship program.
Kaima Designs team thanks all donors who made this a reality for these pupils. Because of your generosity, these children will be off the streets and spend more time studying instead. They are happy to commence the 2018/2019 academic year with great enthusiasm and peace of mind.
