Orphans in Education
In rural Kenya, Mulanthankari to be exact, we have been working with over 15 orphans who have been identified and approved via the local social service offices into our care. Our primary focus is to ensure that these children are given more than a fighting chance to thrive in the wider world. Our key strategy is to educate them and provide some support for their carers and our staff who act as caretakers and stand-in parents for them. The number of children needing support increases every cycle and it would be great for you to be part of this project in whatever way that you can.
Educating a Community Child
In rural Kenya (Mulanthankari, Meru) & Nigeria (Iguosa, Benin City) to be exact, we are primarily located and operating within a community that is largely illiterate and the children are often disengaged from education and formal schooling. This project is aimed at sponsoring at least twenty children from the local community into formal education. Most of the children will require some tutorship to enable them seat for and pass basic entry requirements for schooling. An educated child is an equipped child; equipped for a greater tomorrow. Your involvement in this project will go a long way to alleviate suffering an poverty in the local community
In rural Kenya (Mulanthankari, Meru) & Nigeria (Iguosa, Benin City) to be exact, we are primarily located and operating within a community with a group of widows that come together to develop ideas to support themselves. This project is aimed at providing a pantry (The Thando Pantry) for the widows so that their basic life-needs are catered for. This forum of widows provides an opportunity to provide wider care and financial advice that are workable within the local farm economy; inclusive in this project also is the opportunity to provide skill development programs that are workable in the local context. Widows have a past but even better to equip them with tools that can make them dream again.
Better Boys Better Girls Club (BBBG)
In rural Nigeria (Iguosa, Benin City) to be exact, we are primarily located and operating within a community where there is a significant number of under-engaged youth with whom we run weekly educational and leadership training programs. This forum is pivotal in ensuring that the youth are steered away from antisocial behaviors and are tooled with the right mindset to become positive contributors to the society. The program is run by a pool of volunteers who are adequately trained to ensure the right level of care and safeguarding are in place for the program. Partnerships with employers and organisations for day-training and internships are always in development to plug our youth into the corporate world.
In School Leadership Mentoring
In rural Nigeria (Iguosa, Benin City) we initiated an in-school leadership mentoring program that focuses largely on sexual health & career development. This project is aimed at stoking conversations that are seldom had at a peer-level of engagement which fosters friendships and accountability with our volunteers. We have been able to establish some strategic partnerships with local schools and boards of education that grant us access to the students (via their assemblies) in the various schools. It is a growing program with an intent to move into more regions in the country where similar needs have been identified.
