Thank you for reducing the spread of Covid-19

 

We have been at the forefront to stop the spread of the novel Corona virus by supporting  communities living in Kibera to  bulld hand washing facilities. We have also been provding them with information on how people can maintain hygiene.

This is a community led initiative where the community seeks to solve the challenges and compliment of efforts of the government in curbing the spread of Covid_19.

Covid-19 is spreading across the globe with 300,000 confirmed cases and over 10,000 deaths, the virus is literary bringing the world to stand still. Simple, everyday things must stop: freedom of movement, mingling with friends, shaking hands with new acquaintances, or even working alongside our colleagues. However, we are not powerless to stop it. We can and must play our part.

We have so far distributed two hand washing stations in Kibra slum supporting over 1,000 people directly. Kibra slum is characterized by overcrowding. The slum also has limited access to clean water and poor sanitation facilities. Our hope is to support over 50,000 people by end of April.

 would like to sincerely extend my sincere appreciation for the support you have accorded us in 2019.  Looking back, I am grateful that you shared your gifts with us. Here are some of the impact your support has made this year. 

 “I joined Garden of Hope Foundation- Mentorship program 2 years ago. The Self-awareness sessions revealed more information that I did not know about myself. As a result, I have learnt to embrace myself and work hard to achieve my dreams. I have experienced a great improvement on my confidence, team leadership and public speaking ability.” Mourice.

"With the current technology and innovation, the world is transitioning to a digital age. The leadership and entrepreneurship has enhanced my skills on how to use technology to solve challenges in the world.  I hope to start a social entrepreneurship venture that will equip informal youth with computers skills" Snyder

“I have acquired skills in entrepreneurship, small business and basic financial management. I have also learnt how to make soap and bake cakes for my children’s birthday as well as selling. These skills have enabled me to start a business where I bake and sell cakes to the Land Mawe community.” Beatrice.

"Garden of Hope Foundation through the Leadership development and Entrepreneurship program has provided me with the opportunity to equip young people with basic computer skills and coding. This has enhanced my computing skills". Fednut.
