  • Description

    Description

    We are a registered community organization in the slums of kawangware Nairobi 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 empower women and young people who have mental health issues by empowering them and making them to be self sustainable people in our community because they face many challenges we visit most churches and schools to create awareness on mental health awareness because in Kenya 1-4 people suffers from mental health
    We also teach skills to women to help them to become independent and self sustainable. we work with several local volunteers who take part in our different activities. Our staff members help with day to day running of the organization 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.
