We know that when we support the women of the community, we are also supporting their families and surrounding networks.

Makini Initiative

A confident girl, a brighter future

More than 65 percent of women and girls in Kenya do not have access to sanitary pads. The lack of safe, affordable and appropriate methods for dealing with menstruation has far-reaching implications for their physical, social and mental well-being.

Kenya Works Community Works

These workshops focus on abuse awareness, education, communication and empowerment. We hold one-day, basic-concept workshops and comprehensive, four-day Community Works training programs. Those who have completed the training are, in turn, leading awareness programs within their own communities and advancing these important messages.

Miale ya Tumaini

Miale ya Tumaini, Swahili for “Ray of Hope,” is an organization that is responding to immense poverty in the slums of Nairobi. Over 65 percent of the 35,000 slum residents are children who live in substandard conditions and lack proper nutrition, safety and education support. The center provides up to 600 children an evening meal, a safe space after school, and family counseling support every day.

Solar Lanterns

Fewer than 20 percent of Kenyan households have access to electricity. We are bringing safe, sustainable light to thousands through our Solar Lantern Drive.

Victory Community Development Center

 

VICODEC focuses on youth and poverty by feeding 2,500 children and educating 650 students every day. It provides medical care to children and their families, along with adult vocational training.

TAPA Preschool

Transform A Person Africa (TAPA) has just increased their footprint in the slum of Kibera, with the addition of their new site, gifted in trust, after an organization poorly managed the school. Now the work begins as TAPA improves the site environment while improving the lives of the children they touch. The TAPA school motto, "Linking children to their potential," and the Kenya Works motto, "Partnering with communities, expanding opportunities," are supporting initiatives that together, are bringing communities the tools to forge lives of dignity and hope.

Information Communication & Technology Center

Linking Kenya to a World of Possibilities

In rural Homa Bay County, Kenya, where the future ICT center will be, exist 12 secondary schools, 23 primary schools, more than 10,000 students and 0 computers. In response to this great need, Kenya Works has partnered with Moriah Resource Centre (MOREC) to bring the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) program to Homa Bay County.
