We are honoured to work with Dr. Karambu Ringera, founder of Ecologia’s partner organisation in Meru, Kenya – International Peace Initiatives (IPI). In an inspiring interview at the New Story Summit hosted at the Findhorn Foundation, Dr. Ringera talks about her reasons for founding IPI, how it has developed, and how it benefits the children, women and the community as a whole.
IPI works to mitigate the effects of HIV/AIDS, violence and poverty and to work with those affected to understand their situation and to empower them to make positive changes to their lives.
One key initiative is IPI’s Kithoka Amani Community Home (KACH), which cares for 30 local vulnerable children who have lost parents or whose parents are unable to take care of them, whilst ensuring they remain part of their community, attend the local school and keep in touch with family and friends. IPI also train women in a range of income generating skills.
Watch the interview with Dr Ringera and find out how IPI is transforming the lives of vulnerable women and children in Meru, Kenya.
