Project Report | Oct 20, 2022
20 Sustainable Businesses Launched.

By Veronicah Nyambura | Project Officer

John is the first born in a family of 5. He graduated from high school in 2021 with  hopes of joining University. However, things did not turn out as expected. John did not score the minimum grade that would enable him to join college or university. 

"I was hopeful,  my parents were hopeful. I really wanted to become a doctor. I knew that this dream would help get our family out of poverty. When things did not turn out as expected, I was frustrated. My hopes vanished" John shared. 

John decided to start working at a nearby restaurant. This was the only way he could continue supporting his family. " One of my colleagues at the restaurant shared a poster he had come across. The poster had details of an economic empowerment training by Garden of Hope Foundation"

In Jan 2022, John enrolled in our program. After 3 months of training. He successfully graduated. During the training,  John developed a business proposal worth $ 150 . Luckily, after a pitching competition his business was funded in April. 

John currently employs 10 staff, he runs a food delivery business that delivers food in Kibera. 

Your support has continued to ensure youth like join continues to be productive in the community.
