Challenge

Kibera slum is the second largest urban slum in sub-sahara Africa and it is home to over 300,000 people. It is estimated that a family of 5 in Kibera live under 2 dollars a day. This makes it difficult for most families to pay school fees, hence they end up dropping out of school. it is estimated that 80% of boys in Kibera graduate from high school compared to 47% of girls. Most of the girls who do not complete school are left vulnerable and they get married at very early age.

Solution

The project will provide these young mothers with space where they will be equipped with sustainable entrepreneurship skills. Teenage mothers who complete this 22 week program will be better prepared for further education, interview processes, job searching, business management, proposal writing, research, community service and have a better understanding of who they are and what goals they have.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 100 women and girls and increase the level of literacy among women and girls in Kibera. All the project beneficiaries will be equipped with employment skills. This project help start businesses and create jobs in Kibera slum.
