Challenge

Over 65% of the families in kilifi, Kenya live in poverty and can barely afford a meal a day and 68% of their women and girls are illiterate. Young girls leave school to go and look for jobs but end up working as house helps, drug peddlers and are sexually exploited while parents rely on the remittances to survive. To stop child exploitation, Lifting the Barriers rescues the girls to give them hope and an education while supporting families to find long term solution to poverty and illiteracy.

Solution

Purchase of equipment (hairdressing, tailoring, computers, cookery and farming). Life skills, education, couselling and business skills will be provided and girls will get a nutritious meal every day alongside counseling and medicare to sexually abused girls.

Long-Term Impact

The acquired education and life skills will lift the 100 girls and their families out of apathy and poverty while they become role models in the fight against child labor and exploitation in Kenya.
