From Disaster Relief to Self-Sustainment

After the support we received from donors like you which enabled us to hold 3 successful monthly food distributions at our two centers, the 36 families we support suggested that it was time for them to be looking into ways they could support themselves. Kenya began to open up with a less strict curfew and more businesses were allowed to open again. We realized we could start to move away from a disaster relief program, to something that would empower these families to be more self-sustaining. With collaboration from the families and centers, it was decided that we would transition from distributing food supplies to seeds and supplies for farming. Each family was given seeds to grow corn and beans along with a little bit of fertilizer. These supplies will help the families be able to sustain themselves. If they can grow their own food or even sell their crops, it will put them in a place where they aren’t necessarily dependent on jobs that could any day disappear because of COVID. 

We are extremely proud of the effort these families have put in to become self-sustaining again and are eager to see the fruit of their labor (literally and figuratively)! Thank you for the role that you have played in helping to hold up these families during an extremely critical time of their lives. You are the reason they are now able to move towards providing for themselves and they have expressed to us how very grateful they are. Thank you!
