Lekiji village is in Laikipia North in Kenya, approximately, 1,400 acres inhibited by 400 households from 4 pastoralist Communities, sandwiched between two private ranches and lies like a small island disconnected from basic infrastructure like roads, electricity, clean water,hospitals, schools and markets. illiteracy stands at 94% The project will open up the community and will affect not only 200 children but generations to come leading to the empowerment of the community through education
ICC empowered the community to get back their 1,400 acres of land, erected a solar powered fence on 15 acres of land to address food insecurity and livelihoods. ICC is now inviting support to build an elementary class to lay a strong educational foundation for the children and future leaders of Lekiji community. Education will empower them,to know their rights and demand for them, give them a voice to end marginalization, illiteracy, poverty, hunger, malnutrition and restore dignity for ever
