Fundraiser for Binyavanga Wainaina

Binyavanga Fundraiser

Kachifo Limited will be supporting Ake Arts and Book Festival, in collaboration with Vee Global Concepts Ltd, Sabi News and Freedom Park, to raise $10,000 for Binyavanga Wainaina – writer, activist and dear friend – who recently suffered a major stroke.

There will be a fundraiser for Binyavanga this Saturday, November 28, at the Members’ Lounge of Freedom Park in Lagos, from 12 noon to 6 PM. There will be readings, signings, an art auction, food and drink courtesy of Kitchen Butterfly, and more.

Kachifo titles will be sold at this event, as well as books from the Ake Festival book store. A percentage of Kachifo’s sales proceedings will go to Binyavanga’s medical fund.

Please come out, lend your support, buy a book.
