The Kibo Apartments
Over the past few years many of you have visited Jinja with Kibo Group and stayed in the apartment complex we currently lease on Lubas Road. These apartments have been an ideal home for us. They provide modern comfort and amenities within a short walking distance from The Source Cafe. They also have adequate room to accommodate all of our visitor groups.
We are very excited to inform you that Kibo Group has begun the process of purchasing the apartment complex. The purchase of this building will ensure that we have a safe, easily accessible and comfortable place to host our guests. We are currently near capacity at our Source Cafe office location, so this purchase also provides us with the opportunity for continued growth.
The purchase price for the complex is set at $135,000. This purchase includes both upstairs apartments, the backyard living quarters and the downstairs office currently leased by Hackers for Charity.
We would appreciate if you considered making a tax-deductible donation toward the purchase of this building.
We believe this opportunity will pay wonderful dividends to Kibo Group staff and visitors for years to come, ensuring that we have a home base that meets our needs as an organization.

Once someone bids on a side or room, the above text will change from "starting bid" to "current bid" and will be updated in real time as new bids come through.
You can make a big impact:
From July 17 to July 31 we will auction the sponsorship rights for each apartment and for each room within the apartments. The winner of each auction will choose a name for the apartment or room, and will help design the Mvule wood carving that will hang outside that apartment or room.
If you would like to sponsor a room with a group, please make a note of all parties involved while bidding.
Bids can be made anonymously by clicking on the button beneath each option, and filling out the bid form.
Please email, text or call Zach Abney if you have any questions.
The status of each auction will be updated daily. Once a room has been bid on, the text will change from "starting bid" to "current bid."
All bidders will be notified if they have been outbid and will be given an opportunity to place a final bid on 7/31. The auction will close at 12 a.m. (EST) on August 1, 2018.
