WHAT WE DO
— Girls Mentorship Programs in the Community
In local public primary and secondary schools, we teach and mentor girls about sexual and reproductive health and rights, including teenage pregnancy, abortion, HIV, gender-based violence, gender stereotyping, child forced marriage, and menstrual hygiene education.
In addition, we offer girls in school with supplies such as sanitary pads, soap, and clothing. The elimination of adolescent pregnancies, high school dropouts, and sex for pad culture are our main objectives.
— Community Empowerment program
We provide rural economic development training and support to women, people with disabilities, and young people so that they can start and run their own enterprises and initiatives, reducing the country’s constantly increasing unemployment rate. We emphasize agriculture, microfinance, table banking, poultry farming, and soft skills like tailoring, weaving, computer skills, and beading in the community.
We collaborate as much as possible with the community, schools, and institutions to ensure that our children have access to education and learning materials. The program includes textbooks, pens, pencils, laptop uniforms, a library, lighting, classrooms, water tanks, and desks.
— Sports and Arts Development Program
We use sports and the arts to raise awareness and exhibit skills, as well as to educate young people about the ramifications of drug and substance abuse in the community.
Sexual Reproductive Health Rights Education Program
Objective: To end teenage pregnancy among school-going girls and increase the accessibility of SRH education,
For most developing nations, meeting the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) requirements of young people remains a difficulty. Sexual and reproductive health is both a fundamental human right and a human development concern that every country should work to achieve. This includes the right to the best health possible, including reproductive health, which is defined as a state of complete physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being regarding the reproductive system rather than simply being free from diseases, as well as the right to information, which means that women and girls have the right to seek and receive information about health, including sexual and reproductive health, menstruation, contraception, safe abortion, sexual gender-based violence, and reproductive rights. These are all issues that need to be addressed.
Agribusiness Empowerment Training For Youth in Kakamega County-Organic Food Production
Objective: Economic empowerment of young people, reduced the unemployment rate in the country and provide nutritious Food security to the community
Addressing the young employment crisis is especially important given that 70% of Kenya’s population is under 30 years old and the median age is 19. Furthermore, the country’s population is anticipated to reach 66 million by 2030 and 91.5 million by 2050 at a rate of 2.5 percent per year.
More should be done in particular to harness the potential of the country’s agri-food sector to contribute to the creation of sustainable jobs for young people. Agriculture contributes 25% of GDP, 65 percent of exports, and employs nearly 60% of the entire labor force. Nonetheless, the Kenya Youth Agribusiness Strategy (2017–2021) claims that only 10% of young people are directly employed in the industry. Even though this percentage appears to be abnormally low in comparison to other nations, there is a general trend of youths moving away from agriculture and rural areas in general. Since March 2020, the COVID-19 epidemic has really interfered with this. Loss of income or employment; loss of market are the most serious effects for young farmers.
Digitalization of Education, COVID-19 Educational Disruption, and Decentralized Library Project
On a global scale, the COVID-19 epidemic exposed many inequalities and disparities. These divisions can be seen in many aspects of our society, from racial disparities to financial disparities to political divisions. In the previous two years, several major concerns that need to be addressed have surfaced. The discrepancies in education seen around the world have been one of the most prominent gaps highlighted. Another significant split, the digital divide, has intensified this.
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the education of approximately 1.6 billion students worldwide, and while many teachers, professors, and students were able to adjust and adapt to the virtual environment, more than half of the world’s young students were left behind because they did not have the means to continue their education virtually. To put this in perspective, nearly 80% of the global population is disconnected from the internet,53% of those offline are located in developing countries.
The educational gap between developed countries and developing countries continues to be a problem despite an increasing enrollment of children in primary school all over the world.
With limited access to educational resources and information, developing countries are still striving to bridge the educational and digital inequality. The latest COVID-19 epidemic has revealed a large resource gap that keeps disadvantaged civilizations suppressed while propelling advanced civilizations into superior conditions. The lack of access to information and educational resources is a key obstacle to development.
The majority of the world’s population continues to live in undeveloped countries where they are unable to get trustworthy or crucial information. The digital and educational divides must be addressed to bring the entire world into the same playing field. Closing the digital divide will benefit not just the disadvantaged inhabitants of developing countries, but will also provide a closer global globe with fresh ideas, inventions,
