The project scope of the LassK Foundation is based in our belief that early intervention for children growing up with access to essential services is the best investment of our resources. We see health and education as the two key areas where we can make an impact in the lives of children and their families.
In the area of health care, we support a clinic in the town of Bouake by fulfilling their request for equipment they were lacking. We have also worked with small villages to supply clean drinking water and food.
Since 2019, we have been partnering with local schools in the same region to support children as they begin their early education. We provide school supplies for families so that kids can focus on their own learning knowing that they have everything they need to be successful.
In that same year at Christmas, LassK Foundation decided to put a smile on a lot of kids’ faces by providing gifts at schools and orphanages.
We have also maintained our support through the Covid-19 pandemic by ensuring that schools have access to the medical supplies needed to keep classrooms open safely. We provided buckets for hand washing, hand sanitizer and masks for students and their teachers.
While we began our foundation by stepping up in small ways in our own community, we are driven by big dreams. We would like to expand our services to build new schools in regions where kids currently travel far to attend classes. We also hope to develop the healthcare infrastructure of the region to ensure affordable access to medical attention. Currently the limited services and cost of care are barriers to most residents who often go without preventative medicine and acute care for illness
