Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In Kenya, currently, over 65% of the population is under the age of 25. Youth empowerment, education, and economic opportunities are key to the future of the nation. Providing health, education, and community development resources in rural areas move people from a poverty mindset to one of plenty where families and individuals, are able to thrive and become less dependent upon others for their subsistence.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

High School Scholarships

Education: We believe all children should have the opportunity to attend high school or trade school. Education gives children direction and keeps them from becoming vulnerable to crime and exploitation. Expansion International provides funding for students to attend high school, leadership training for students in high school and invests in schools and training centers in the communities where we work.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Non-adult children

Expansion International provides health services to disadvantaged populations previously living without access to healthcare through a variety of methods. Some of these include conducting free mobile medical clinics, providing a mobile nurse for rural areas, establishing a quality medical clinic over the next 3 years, and providing clean water solutions like a well, home rain gutters and catchment tanks, and community water storage tanks in communities that suffer from severe dry conditions throughout the majority of the year.

Population(s) Served
Families
Economically disadvantaged people

Expansion International provides daycare for pre-school aged children so parents can work. Additionally, we sponsor projects and training that engage the local workforce, provide business, leadership, and agricultural training, education in best business practices, provide access to microfinancing, and tutoring for young adults to help further their education. We are committed to the construction of a new community center that will replace a dilapidated children's learning center. The new center will provide mother and child development classes, educational tutoring, a library, computer lab, and recreational area, a community room and kitchen for social gatherings, and two safe rooms for vulnerable women and children.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Expansion International would like to reduce poverty by addressing health issues, offering education funding, and micro-finance programs with business training while helping each person to know the gift of Jesus Christ in the communities where we are currently working.

Our overall strategy is to work with communities to identify leaders then link partners, facilitate volunteers, and provide leadership by guiding and connecting organizations with suitable development projects. We believe to transform a poverty-stricken community the focus must include a holistic approach to address multiple areas at the same time. The areas we address include health, economic, education, and spiritual enrichment. We identify specific projects based on community needs then identify solutions through working with partners in their areas of expertise.

Expansion International, Inc is located in Boise, Idaho and currently has six employees working in the Boise office. They are responsible for setting strategies, identifying needs, and locating and mobilizing resources. Expansion International Africa was established as a Kenyan NGO in 2010 and currently has eight employees and a board of directors. They are responsible for identifying needs and implementing and managing ongoing projects in Kenya.

The BOD of both organizations are actively involved in the management of the various program, specifically, the education, mission/health, and economic development programs are directed by the members of the board.

We have done very well at meeting the targets for the number of people served each year and for volunteer involvement.
Our goal is to broaden and diversify our sources of income by identifying and engaging new partners with the goal of expanding our reach into new communities in need.
