Partnership Development

By a female, 22-30 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of PARTNERSHIP DEVELOPMENT This project has really done a great job to local women moreso for those who are in remote areas. It has trained the women on soap making and know the women are able to make the soap on their own and sell. It has reduced GBV in the family because ever women can provide for their family. I want to believe that they will also educate others on the samething and improve their living standards. Read more.

Giving Birth

By a female, 46-60 years old , in Turkana, Kenya
Map of GIVING BIRTH Turkana community is one of those communities where a woman is treated as an instrument of giving birth and not a wife or normal woman. In this community, women give birth untill their wombs and ovaries cant produce anymore. I remember while leaving their a woman came to me trying to seek advice form me on what to do because she was 10 years i marriage and already she was having ten children yet she was already carrying the eleventh child in her womb. Something strange is that these people in the community are not rich and as much they emphasize on children in their marriage, the fact remains that they can't sustain or take care of this children. Being a nurse by then I advised this woman and informed her about family planning but I asked her to confirm from the husband. Lucky enough the husband was kind enough to accept the advise and after we did this to this family, others with the same problem came trickling and after some time most families started to family plan and the suffering of the women came to an end.

Giving Patients Hope

By a female, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of GIVING  PATIENTS HOPE A faith based organisation in kakamega has set up a hospital visitation programme for the sick. This is to pray for patients and to counsel them. Patients usually respond to care and counseling as they get encouraged and heal up quickly. This FBO has transformed the society's morale as they have even increased the number of days that some HIV/AIDS patients take due to the time they spend with them , encourage them and give them hope.
