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

Food security program

We partner with communities in Western Kenya to increase access to education for primary, secondary, and post-secondary students who are orphaned or vulnerable children. Our three program areas ensure educational access through the following targeted strategies:

Food Security: We identify the community’s neediest children and provide them with a daily nutritious meal. Often, their only one. We also offer as many students as we can the things that can keep them from attending school: uniforms, blankets, solar lamps, menstrual supplies, and undergarments.

Population(s) Served

Together, we partner with communities in Western Kenya to increase access to education for primary, secondary, and post-secondary students who are orphaned or vulnerable children. Our three program areas ensure educational access through the following targeted strategies:

Educational Scholarships: We provide financial support to qualified students to help them continue their education. Students do not need to repay these grants. Once selected, students will receive annual assistance if they continue to make appropriate educational progress. A limited number of scholarships are available each year for high school and college.

Orphans

We partner with communities in Western Kenya to increase access to education for primary, secondary, and post-secondary students who are orphaned or vulnerable children. Our three program areas ensure educational access through the following targeted strategies:

Youth Empowerment Programming: We connect girls and boys with community mentors who are trained by our staff to provide vocational and life guidance. Working in peer groups, our girls’ empowerment team (GET UP) and boys’ empowerment team (BET UP) add stability for those who may not have family role models while teaching health education, positive relationships, life skills, female rights, and career options.
