Kumbatio is the main charity at the Vincentius bookfair!

's-Hertogenbosch, January 17, 2015

Every year the Vincentius union organizes the biggest bookfair (between 1200 – 1500 exhibitors and more than 100.000 books!!) of Noord-Brabant. The revenue of this fair is going to charities which concentrate on developing countries. They selected one charity out of all notified charities as the main project. To be considered as the main project we have to offer a well grounded project plan with a financial explanation.

After waiting for almost a year for the outcome of the selection of the tendered projects, we got the message that Kumbatio was selected during the first round. Soon after that we received the final answer that Kumbatio was picked as the main charity among the last 3 projects. This means a big part of the income of the 41th Vincentius bookfair is going to Kumbatio this year!!

The project of Kumbatio where the revenue is going to is the “Life Skills Program”. In 2015 and 2016 Kumbatio wants to work on the self-esteem of the children in Kumbatio by hiring a permanent psychologist who also has contact with the remaining family of the children. Besides this we will also organize day sessions with the children of Kiota, their siblings, possible father or mother or their guardian. These sessions will be counseled by several psychologists. They will teach the families to embrace the past and learn how to improve the family relations now. The awareness of a child that they belong to a family is really important. Next to this the families will receive micro credits to get selfsupporting. As a final goal we want to give the other children and families in the area of Kiota the opportunity to join the sessions with the psychologists to help as many families as possible.

You can help Kiota and many families by visiting this bookfair. If you have books of which you want to get rid, CD’s or LP's you can donate these to the Vincentius Union and help the fair (and Kiota) this way.

The bookfair will be organized at the Brabanthallen at the Diezekade in Den Bosch:
Friday the 30th of Januari (7pm-10pm)
Saturday the 31th of Januari and Sunday the 1th of Februari (10am – 4pm)

No entrance or parking fee!
