Calvin John Henry Winbush
LiBush International Connection, an African imports store opened its doors in the fall of 2011. Located on K Street in Old Sacramento California, the store thrived on selling African imports. Calvin J Winbush and his wife Linet Ndanyi-Winbush, a native to Kenya Africa, sent a portion of the stores proceeds directly to Kenya, a commitment that provided three solid meals a day to 150 orphans. It was a commendable feat by most standards, except they felt the need to do more to help those in the poorest and most densely populated counties in Kenya. Tapping into his creativity, Calvin along with his wife, formed Libush International Outreach, a non-profit organization and Ondafa Foundation, a non profit in Kenya Africa. He also established partnerships with specific American agricultural research institutes. Further advancing his research to the cause, he held the first ever LiBush International fashion show on the Delta King in May 2016 to raise funds. In spite of his waning health, Calvin made his final trip to Kenya Africa during the month of September in 2017 where he met with representatives from Alcorn University. Soil samples were collected and later analyzed by Woodland High School Agriculture Department. Calvin began drafting the blueprints for the future headquarters of LiBush International Outreach in Kenya Africa on his return trip to Sacramento, just a few months shy before the Lord took him home, leaving LiBush International Outreach , L.I.O.N. in the capable hands of his wife Linet Ndanyi-Winbush.
