Summary

A project to construct a center on gifted land in a remote village in Kenya to empower 150 rural girls annually. This center will offer training in basic ICT, packaging product crafting, entrepreneurship, and mentorship to marginalized girls aged 18-25, particularly those in extreme poverty, differently gifted, and unsupported teenage mothers. The goal is to equip them with market-ready skills for employment and income generation using recycled materials, leading them to dignified livelihoods.

Challenge

Girls from economically disadvantaged backgrounds struggle with a myriad of challenges; insecurity, GBV, a lack of basic needs/amenities, poor education & adverse health outcomes, among others. The lack of sustainable income & livelihoods is considered a root cause and critical driver of most development problems. Combining the lack of sustainable livelihood options with a systemic structure that perpetuates inequality, hope & the ability to break the cycle of poverty becomes a mirage

Solution

Young women are skilled in Packaging Products Crafting, Entrepreneurship, and Basic ICT for three months with certifications. Sales-based compensation on products made and each young woman is paired with a mentor for 7 months and those transitioning to work are connected to Apprenticeship

Long-Term Impact

The center will be the training and mentorship hub for 150 young women annually, offering them a space to learn, and create products to earn a living and community. The long-term goal is for underserved young women to be empowered to achieve sustainable and dignified livelihoods.
