Happy New Year!

Mentorship Session.

I 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, Mentorship Club

"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.

  • 100 youth trained on computers
  • 150 youth trained on entrepreneurship
  • 200 equipped with leadership skills.
  • 230 primary school students can use computers to design their project.
  •  1,800 adolescent boys and girls equipped with basic soft skills in urban slums and rural communities

We are only a few $ away from reaching our end of year goal. Consider making an end of year donation which will go towards support 10 students through school. 

Thank you for your continued support. 

Happy New Year.

Menstruation.

"What do you do when you cannot access Menstrual Products?" I asked. "We use chicken feathers, sit on sand the whole day or use pieces of clothes" One lady answered. "Do you know anything about Menstruation?"  I continued, "We are not allowed to talk about that" anothe lady replied.

This conversation came when were visiting a group of ladies in Samburu County. Samburu county is about 500 Kms from Kenya's capital Nairobi. This county is characterized by high level of poverty. Most women and girls cannot access quality education. Being a pastrolist comunity, they move from one place to another during dought to look for pasture and water. 

Just  few weeks ago one girl killed herself becasue of period stigma in Kenya. Mentruation is a topic that is never disussed in such commuties, menstruating women and girls are considered dirty, and they are mainly isolated during menstruation. In counties likes Samburu, men are not  even allowed  talk with women during menstruation. 

We visisted Samburu county to raise awareness on menstrual stigma in addition to supporting women and girls get access to menstrual products. For most women and girls this was their first time talking about  mensrruation openly at least with other people. 

In addition to Menstruation we also supported the children get new pair of shoes and stationery. Some the children have never worn news pair of shoes in their life. 

This is the impact your support is creating in poor communities in Kenya. 

Consider supporting more women and girls stay in school.
