Challenge

Over 1,000,000 people have been rendered jobless because of COVID-19 in Kenya. Most of these people come from informal settlements like Kibera slum. They mainly depend on domestic work and manual jobs to earn a living. Most small businesses run by local communities members in Kibera slum have also been forced to close because they cannot meet COVID-19 guidelines. The world health organization has also raised alarm on the mental health of people during and after COVID-19.

Solution

This project will help 500 people from Kibera slum deal with post COVID-19 effects. The project will provide psychological support by linking these people and their families with professional counsellors. This project will also support them through supply of food and paying rent for them.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help restart 250 small businesses which have been forced to close because of COVID-19. The 250 small businesses will be financed and owners trained on entrepreneurship. The project will also help in linking 250 people who have lost their jobs with potential employers.
