Healthy communities.

Brighter futures.

We are an NGO working with community members to improve public health, educational outcomes, and economic opportunities in informal settlements.

In kenya, millions of people live in informal settlements.

In these communities, residents lack access to quality health care, proper nutrition, and adequate sanitation, leaving them susceptible to preventable diseases. 

Limited access to quality education and economic advancement opportunities, high levels of unemployment, and gender inequity further impede individual and community progress. Though residents are talented, resilient, and entrepreneurial, many lack the opportunities needed to break cycles of poverty. We’re changing that narrative. 

we partner with communities to drive change.

For over 20 years, we’ve worked with residents of informal settlements to transform health, education, and economic outcomes in their communities. 

Thanks to these collaborations, we are able to identify the most pressing challenges in each community through participatory research, build the capacity of local health and education systems, develop youth leaders, and drive change from within.
