Amidst the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Garden of Hope Foundation has stood steadfast in its commitment to supporting vulnerable communities. Over the past months, we are proud to share that we have provided ongoing assistance to 100 families directly, ensuring they receive vital food baskets every month. In the face of economic uncertainties and disrupted livelihoods, these provisions have been a lifeline, offering sustenance and relief to those most affected by the pandemic. The impact has been profound, fostering a sense of community resilience and solidarity during these challenging times.
Moreover, our dedication to education remains unwavering. Through our scholarship program, 20 children have continued to receive the educational support they need to pursue their dreams. These scholarships go beyond academic assistance; they embody the belief that education is a powerful tool for breaking the cycle of poverty and fostering hope for a brighter future. We celebrate the successes and aspirations of these young minds, recognizing that investing in their education today creates a lasting impact on the communities of tomorrow.
In addition to these initiatives, we've enrolled 44 families into the medical scheme in Kenya, ensuring access to essential healthcare services. Recognizing the importance of health in the overall well-being of our communities, this endeavor aligns with our commitment to holistic support. As we navigate the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our donors and partners whose unwavering support enables us to be a beacon of hope for those in need.
Through a multifaceted approach that prioritized employment creation and entrepreneurship, we did not only provide immediate relief but also empowered these families to regain their financial stability. Employment creation initiatives have been instrumental in offering job opportunities to 500 individuals affected Covid-19, thereby alleviating unemployment woes exacerbated by the pandemic.
By collaborating with local businesses and launching job training programs, Garden of HopeFoundation enabled 250 individuals (most of them young mothers) to secure gainful employment, restoring their livelihoods and fostering economic independence. Additionally, the entrepreneurship support has seen aspiring entrepreneurs receive mentorship, training, and even startup capital, resulting in the birth of thriving small businesses. These initiatives have not only bolstered individual families but have also contributed to the broader community's economic resilience.
Furthermore, Garden of Hope Foundation's sustained efforts in monitoring the progress of these families have showcased the long-term impact of their interventions, everagely a family of 5 currenly earn a monthly income of $ 100 from the initial $ 20. Through regular follow-ups and assessments have revealed that the families continue to experience economic stability, with increased income, improved financial literacy, and a profound sense of empowerment.
