The Kar Geno Women's Group! Bravo!

Dear Donors,

We are just so happy that we are working with the Kar Geno Women's Group in Siaya, Kenya. Kar Geno translated from the local language, Luo, means Center for Hope, it was formed to empower women and youth through self-help initiatives. These women meet on the tenth of every month to discuss arising challenges and community issues and to explore and share ideas. They run several activities from handcrafts made from water hyacinth, to girl child education empowerment, farming, and the Moringa project. These resourceful women also do table banking which is a funding strategy where members meet once every month, place their savings, loan repayments and other contributions on the table and then borrow immediately either as long term or short term loans.

We marvel at the resourcefulness that they took with the moringa tree project and therefore were able to successfully deliver dried moringa for feeding programs and to increase the nutrition for the children in this village that struggles with poverty. They not only grew the trees but were diligent about learning how to make powdered moringa and efficiently and effectively providing us with moringa tree powdered so we can provide to feeding programs in the poorest regions in Kenya. 

We would love to expand this project even more not only to support the work of Kar Geno but to help those children who struggle with malnutrition. If not caught early, children will not have the same intellectual and growth capacity which is often tragic. Our goal is to spread the work of Kar Geno by purchasing their excess powdered moringa, and to grow more trees where malnutrition is widespread. 

Thank you for you generosity.

Shana Greene
