Kenya is a lower-middle income economy. Although Kenya's economy is the largest and most developed in eastern and central Africa, 16.1% (2023/2024) of its population lives below the international poverty line.
This severe poverty is mainly caused by economic inequality, government corruption and health problems. The key development challenges still include poverty, economic inequality, transparency and accountability, climate change, and the vulnerability of the economy to internal and external shocks. e.g COVID-19 pandemic.
We encourage parents to spend on education and training because educating more children – particularly girls – is the solution to poverty the world has been looking for. Education is a major key in eradication poverty and preventing early pregnancies in our areas of operation.
Through our program , we provide basic needs like food, clothes and medical care. Having accessible basic needs and eliminating malnutrition is a critical solution to poverty. Our social workers also follow up with the beneficiaries to ensure there is no child abuse or sexual abuse.
Seventy-five per cent of our beneficiaries in rural areas count on farming for their livelihoods. We have developed projects to increase our income in order to fund intervention programs for our beneficiaries. Our projects include: maize (corn) farming, rice farming, pig farming and cattle farming.
