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.
All operations take place at the Monicah Ndegwa Center for Women and Children. The center has been in operation since September 2021. Our first cohort graduated in August 2022, and our second Cohort completed and graduated from the program in December 2022.
The Board of Directors made the decision to close the Monicah Ndegwa Center for Women & Children in February 2023 due to insurmountable challenges to the center’s sustainability. We believe that the decision to not continue the center’s operations is in the best interest of our organization because we are currently unable to afford the operating costs and instead, we’re incurring debt.
It’s important to note that we’re not dissolving Project Afya Inc., or Project Afya CBO. We’re only ceasing operations at the Monicah Ndegwa Center for Women and Children and putting all programs and activities on hold.
