Money raised through the stall is sent to Narok, where it is used to help the homeless, deal with problems associated with drought, and operate a feeding programme. The money has also helped extend a nursery school, adding a kitchen, installing a tank for rain water collection, and adopting 50 children.  The project also employs a minister in Norok to help look after the children, and ensure the school has food, clothes, books and any medical needs.
