IE University Students Begin a Campaign to Donate Clothes to Families in Need in Nairobi A group of IE University students has launched a campaign – the donation of clothes for people in need in Paradise Slum Nairobi, Kenya.

The student leading this action is the Guatemalan Daniel España, a second-year undergraduate student of Business Administration (BBA). Daniel did a two-month internship in Kenya volunteering at the NGO “Strathmore Educational Trust” aimed at helping parents and children. These practices form part of a corporate social impact – “Social Impact Project” – designed so that IE University students can provide a service to a community outside the borders of the campus. The African experience was very professionally enriching for Daniel, awakening in him a special sensitivity to the needs of slum dwellers of Paradise Slum. Students have placed three containers for the collection of clothes: one outside the office of the BBA on the third floor, another next to the library on the second floor, and the last one in the cafeteria. Do not forget: • Any type of clothing is acceptable provided it is clean • You have to put clothes in sealed plastic bags • We also accept winter clothing. It has also placed several money boxes to cover the cost of sending the clothes to Africa. They are located in the library, the cafeteria and in the rectory hall, in the office of Nicky Sharp.

Un grupo de alumnos de IE University han lanzado una campaña de  donación de ropa destinada a las personas necesitadas del barrio marginal Paradise Slum de Nairobi, Kenia. El alumno que lidera esta acción es el guatemalteco Daniel España, que cursa en Segovia el segundo curso del Grado en Administración de Empresas (BBA). 

Daniel realizó dos meses de prácticas en Kenia trabajando como voluntario en la ONG “Strathmore Educational Trust”, orientada a ayudar a padres y jóvenes. Estas prácticas forman parte de un programa empresarial de impacto social –“Social Impact Project”- pensado para que los alumnos de IE University presten un servicio a la comunidad fuera de las fronteras del campus. La  experiencia en África de Daniel fue muy enriquecedora profesionalmente; además le sirvió para despertar en él una sensibilidad especial hacia las  necesidades de los habitantes del barrio marginal Paradise Slum. Los alumnos han colocado tres contenedores para la recaudación de ropa : uno frente al despacho del BBA en la tercera planta, otro al lado de la Biblioteca en la segunda planta, y el último en la cafetería. 

No olvides que: 

•Cualquier tipo de ropa es aceptable siempre y cuando esté limpia

•Es necesario poner la ropa en bolsas de plástico cerradas

• También se acepta ropa de invierno. 

Asimismo, se han colocado varias huchas con el fin de cubrir los gastos de envío de la ropa a África. Estas huchas están situadas en Biblioteca, Cafetería y en el pasillo de rectorado, en el despacho de Nicky Sharp.

Three boxes to drop off your used clothes have been placed around the campus: one in front of the BBA offices on the third floor, another next to the Library on the second floor, and the last one on the ground floor of the cafeteria.

We kindly request contributors to take into the following

•Any kind of clothing is acceptable as long as it is clean
•Clothing must be placed in a tied plastic bag
•Winter clothing is also acceptable

Additionally, since the expense for sending the clothes off is high, it would be greatly appreciated if loose change can be spared for one of the 3 donation cans located around campus: the first one on Beatriz Borregón’s desk (first desk upon entering the Library), the second on Nicky Sharp’s desk in the Student Office, and the third behind the cash register of the Cafeteria.
