Sustainable and key support for Kibagare Community


St Martins School and the Kibagare Community, Nilinde Nijijenge aims to support a sustainable community and in doing so enable this Community to maintain the support that they give. Working and focussing on those most in need and those who can be enabled. By creating self-sufficiency across households, we are improving the community in itself. Kenya is enduring its worst drought in 40 years. Food and water shortages, coupled with skyrocketing prices are hard-hitting in slum communities

The women in Cooperative Groups in the Kibagare slum are facing their hardest times. On the back of Covid, and now Kenya's worst drought in over 40 years. We are looking to support those most in need and those who are enabled. Employment for slum communities is often in the form of casual labour, and this is unreliable for families as a dependable source of income. Many families are single mothers with several young children. These families can become vulnerable very easily.


The cooperative groups are registered, and operate with organisation, weekly meetings, offering support financially and support by belonging to a group. Offering members the opportunity to become self sufficient, which means their households will become self sufficient. Running in parallel with the home classifcation program within the community. We are able to target support to those most vulnerable and by joining the Cooperative groups, to improve living and home conditions for families.

Long-Term Impact

Self sufficiency, families with security, well fed children who are able to attend school are elements of creating a stronger, safer community and moving families away from the problems that are created from financial and social vulnerability. Children can receive better care, grow in a more secure environment. Single mothers are not forced into less desirable ways of finding income. The process is slow, but the long term effects are to benefit the community as a whole.
