4 Challenges Communities in Kenya Face
We have worked in 15 communities in Kenya since 2015, and all of them are experiencing the same challenges.
They need sustainable food, clean water, education for their children, and health and hygiene support.
When a family is struggling with how to eat, nothing else matters. Day after day, their thoughts are consumed by the same fear. How will I feed my children?
Women in extreme poverty can walk an average of 6 hours every single day to access water…and it’s not even clean water. They are at risk of disease.
Education is everything in Kenya. It is THE Empowerment plan for the next generation. If a family is living on less than $2 a day, how will they send their kids to school?
Nutrition, hygiene, and mental health support are critical for each member of a family to thrive. In rural Kenya, the challenge is how to reach the individual.
4 Steps to Empower a Family
After identifying the challenges that families were facing, we created a 4 step empowerment program.
We reached out to donors, sponsors and partners who want to help families thrive, too.
1. Identify a Family
First, our Community Directors in Kenya work with local leadership in villages to identify the families that are in need of support on their empowerment path.
2. Clarify their Needs
Second, we do family assessments to determine what their current biggest challenges are for food, water, education, and health.
3. Create their Path
Third, our Community Directors submit their recommendations to our team for the best path that will help the family with the tools, resources, and mentoring they need.
4. Magnify the Impact
Finally, we teach stewardship and the “Pay it Forward” concept, developing our families into leaders who will help mentor and support other families in their community.
4 Ways to Help
As we grew, people asked how they could get involved. We created opportunities to serve, and began taking people with us to Kenya. Together, we magnify YOUR impact!
Whether you become a monthly donor, or make a one-time contribution, every dollar makes a difference in the impact that we can make.
We have monthly volunteer opportunities to help us with sewing projects – Garden Towers, HopeKits, and HopeSaCs.
