Challenge

Around 35.5% of Kenya's population is living below the poverty line, reported in 2016. This means basically that more than one-third of the entire country is living on less than U.S. $1.90 per day. Extreme poverty disproportionately affects women, who often lack the resources, skills, and opportunities they need to escape the poverty trap.

Solution

Project Afya's Ultra-Poor Graduation approach is a multifaceted set of interventions designed to address the complex nature of extreme poverty. Participants receive health and nutrition support, a stipend to use as seed capital for a small business; training in life skills, finance, and business skills; and regular coaching and mentoring. Participants unlock their intrinsic potential and develop sustainable livelihoods that set them on a path of upward economic mobility.

Long-Term Impact

Households will: 1. Have stabilized and diversified income sources and assets Households will be food secure 2. Maintains basic hygiene and have access to healthcare Households will have a plan for the future 3. Be aware of accessible government programs 4. Know and demand their rights and be aware of where to report instances of abuse
