SOCIAL EMPOWERMENT PROJECT: The struggle to access fresh water is a reality that marginalized communities in Kenya continues to live with even today. Every day women and children spend hours walking in search for fresh water. The lack of toilets leads the inhabitants to relieve themselves in the bush, and when it rains, the human and animal waste is swept into inadequate source of water available; which increases cases of cholera and child mortality. This condition introduces alarming cases of cholera and child mortality among the marginalized communities.
The lack of water and toilets has left schools and health-clinics struggling with poor hygiene; limiting the effectiveness of treatment provided to patients by health-clinics. This project aims to increase availability and accessibility of WATER, SANITATION & HYGIENE; while sensitizing the Communities on the dangers of defecation in efforts to eliminate the practice and improve health and protect the safety/dignity of life.
DESKS, TEXT AND EXERCISE BOOKS: It is so sad that kids’ in schools among the marginalized communities sit on each other’s laps in overcrowded classrooms with no furniture, lack of desk makes students place books on the floor and their laps to enable them write. The ratio of desks in most schools in marginalized communities stands at 1:8, while some still had to sit on a dirty floor. Such condition makes it very difficult for students to perform well. This project Aims to educationally equip primary Schools with Desks, Text and Exercise Books; in efforts to increase accessibility/availability of formal basic education public school among the marginalized communities in Kenya; and enhances school attendance, improve academic performance, decimate school dropout rates and reduce the escalating rate of early marriages among the girl-child.
