3 Project C.U.R.E. TABLE HOST TOOL KIT Table Hosts are critical to the success of the, as they provide the energy and support that drives relief efforts to the First Ladies country. Since 2006, this event has provided more than $17 million dollars worth of medical supplies and equipment to El Salvador, Belize, Mexico, Ghana, Panama, Tanzania, Mongolia and Mozambique. By hosting a table, you help further our mission of delivering health and hope to hurting people around the world.

Please remind your guests that it is a fundraising event, so an ask will be made during the program.

There is also a vice president and members of the Cabinet who make up the executive branch. ECONOMY: Kenya is the economic and transport hub of East Africa. Agriculture is the backbone of the Kenyan economy and contributes 25% of GDP. General agriculture products include: tea, coffee, sugarcane, beef, corn and wheat. Tourism, refining, and small-scale consumer goods production are other key industries. POVERTY: Poverty is a chronic condition with more than 50% of the population living in absolute poverty poverty where one or more basic needs over a given period endangers life or can cause it harm.
