Summary

Focused on education and safety for the most vulnerable girls in Ndhiwa, Kenya, the projects supported by your donation help prevent human rights injustices such as gender-based violence, child marriage and teenage pregnancies directly threatening the lives of girls. We support over 500 girls in attending school, using skills training, counselling and other activities which have a proven positive and sustainable impact on the lives of individuals, their families and the wider communities.

Challenge

In Homa Bay County, 63% of people live in extreme poverty and 1 in 4 people are infected with HIV - the highest rate in Kenya. Adolescent girls are most at risk due to lack of sexual health education, widespread exploitation, gender based violence and harmful traditional practices including polygamy and child marriage. 57% of women & girls have experienced physical violence and 31.6% sexual violence. In Ndhiwa, only 15.7% of children progress to secondary school, very few of whom are girls.

Solution

We use a holistic approach involving entire communities in gender equality so girls in rural Kenya can create their own bright futures. Our projects tackle the barriers preventing girls from accessing quality education by working towards our key priorities: girls' education, advocacy for safe communities, economic sustainability and food security. We partner with 16 schools in Ndhiwa to provide learning resources, teacher training, and build girls confidence through football and debating groups.

Long-Term Impact

Team Kenya has impacted over 60,000 people since our founding in 2008. We provide agricultural training and table-banking services for girls' mothers so women can improve their families lives and gain financial independence, encouraging sustainable economic development. Our Learning Resource Centre offers girls out-of-school tuition on STEM subjects to provide equal opportunities and develop future prospects. By educating and empowering girls and women, we can transform entire communities.
