The Power of Women and Children, one of Kirkwood Community College’s clubs and non-profit organizations, is sponsoring a clothing drive from now until April 26. This drive will be followed by a second next fall, at the end of which all donations will be shipped. 

According to Prince Nabuyoli, the club’s president, the aim is to “Impact Lives in Africa,” by donating clothing to underprivileged women and children (along with men) in South Africa, although he eventually wants to expand into Tanzania, Ethiopia and Zambia. It also offers students a great way to get involved he added; anyone can donate by dropping their new or used clothing – of any sort – in Cedar Hall 3059, stating that all donations are tax deductible. 

Nabuyoli stated that the Power of Women and Children meets every other Tuesday during activity hour  (11:15 – 12:20) in Cedar Hall 3059, adding that he would like all those who are interested to attend. The club is also active in helping immigrants, mostly from Africa, adjust to life in America by helping them, among other things, with learning how to drive and speaking English he said.

He went on to state that the organization was started more than 10 years ago in South Africa. Nabuyoli added that he would like to see more Kirkwood students get involved.
