Bo Kim, Mako Group
Mako supported Haller through its Dealing for Donations Day. We were given the opportunity to visit Haller’s projects near Mombasa in January 2011, where we saw the positive impact our contributions had made. With thanks to Rene Haller and the Haller team, we learnt valuable lessons in self-sustainability and what can be achieved by the local communities themselves. We could clearly see that Haller has successfully transformed the lives of the communities it works with and has helped to give them and other local communities a vision for the future. Haller looks towards providing a model for practical economic community development that is sustainable and environmentally sound and from what we experienced, that has been put into reality. We are thoroughly excited to see what progress the projects we saw will make in years to come.
