For several years, Scott Stewart has been making tables as a hobby and giving them away for free. His tables are beautifully handcrafted and are a spectacular addition to any room, quickly catching the eye of anyone who sees them. He has often wondered how else his hobby of making tables could benefit others and hoped that they could even be used as a fundraiser for Imani Milele Children. Scott and his wife Pam have had the opportunity to visit these children in Uganda, Africa, and witness, firsthand, all the incredible work being done there and the significant needs the Ugandans still have.
In the past, people have asked if they could purchase a table from Scott, but he has always persisted that they are not for sale. When asked why he doesn't offer them for purchase, he responds, "It's just a hobby of mine that I really have fun doing. If I sell them, it's no longer a hobby - it takes all the fun out of it!" However, Scott wants to use his hobby to raise funds for the Imani Milele Children. While his tables are still not available for purchase, you can donate directly to the Imani Milele Children in exchange for a table.
The Stewarts reached out to Imani Milele Children and asked what they could do to provide aid to these children and their families and what specific projects needed to be funded. They sent over a list of items they need assistance with, particularly the first floor of the new school they are building.
Below is a list of needs totaling $151,885 provided by Imani Milele Children for the first floor of the new Lukasa School. By choosing to donate your contribution will go towards "painting the 1st floor" until that goal is met.
