Challenge

The consequences of insufficient health resources in Sub-Saharan Africa are dire. Every year 500,000 women die from complications related to pregnancy and childbirth, 3 million babies are stillborn and 2.9 million people die from HIV/AIDS, according to figures from WHO. Our established clinic in Kayole Kenya is also associated with the Kayole Rehabilitation Centre for Girls which takes in street girls ages 2-18 and provides education and care.

Solution

Each level of donation provides all levels of healthcare for Kenyans and assists the girls of the Kayole Rehabilitation Centre to a continuing education that will teach them a marketable vocation as well as provide room and board.

Long-Term Impact

Our mission is to build a health care organization that sets the standard for reliable and accessible outpatient health care in Africa as well as deliver the tools to create a better life for the girls once cast aside. We are committed to a self-sustaining model to improve health care and local economy in each community we serve.
