  • Description

    Description

    We are a registered community organization in Githurai-45, mumbi community. Our goal is to empower women and girls because when a woman is empowered then the community benefits. Among what we do is provide sanitary pads and mentorship to local vulnerable girls on a monthly basis. We also provide small non collateral loans to women and youth to start or boost their bussiness because the level of unemployment in our community is quite high. We also teach skills to women to help them to become independent and self sustainable. Currently we have two staff members and several local volunteers who take part in our different activities. Our staff members help with day to day running of the organization such as book keeping, loan collection and planning for monthly mentorship.
    We welcome volunteers to join us and help develop our community and in exchange we provide food and accommodation for the period the volunteer us with us.join us and let's learn from each other.
