Event description
Harambee 2019 is a meaningful night out to benefit COME UNITY's basic needs, education and sustainability programs in East Africa.

About this Event

Harambee is Swahili for ‘all pull together.’ In Kenya, communities harambee regularly, pulling together limited resources to help their neighbors in times of need. Harambee Chicago is COME UNITY’s largest fundraising event, bringing together global partners to fund programs that tackle the systemic issues of chronic poverty. This years theme is ‘Face to Face’ and through virtual reality, guests will come face to face with members of our partner communities to experience life in East Africa.

We will be fundraising for these specific projects at Harambee Chicago to align with COME UNITY's three-part approach to ensure that the communities we serve have the best chance possible to create steady, sustainable change.

  2. Girls Empowerment Conference - Estimated Cost: $5,000
  3. Greenhouses for Inkuseron Community - Estimated Cost: $10,000

Guests will be given the opportunity to experience the communities that COME UNITY partners with through an immersive VR experience made possible by the generous support of Artists of the Industry.
