We have worked with our partner, International Peace Initiatives (IPI), since 2013. Together, we focus on improving the lives and futures of local vulnerable children, young people and single young
mothers around Meru County in Kenya.
With the Kithoka Amani Community Home (KACH), we support 35 local children as their mothers are given the skills, training and resources they need to break their cycles of poverty for the long term. At KACH, the children can live safely and have access to a quality education. Children are supported through their education through sponsorships paid by our generous donors.
There are still children at IPI who need your help as they fulfil their educational journey.
We also provide free skills training courses to the local young people of Meru, Kenya. Over the years, we have supported over 150 young people to take part in community-led courses, learning skills that they think will best help them to break away from a live of poverty. Many of the young people who take part in our training haven’t completed Primary education, so these courses are key in helping them build brighter futures.
Did you know?
Despite some economic progress, an estimated 46% of Kenyans live in poverty. Children, as is often the case in poor countries, are the most affected. The HIV/AIDS prevalence rate in Kenya is a shocking 6.3%, one of the highest figures in the world. Over a million children have been orphaned due to AIDS.
Here you can find our more about what we’ve been doing to help make a change to the lives of these children. From skills training for their parents, to sponsored school places and hot meals, you can find out everything we have been doing to help support the children and young mothers at International Peace Initiatives.
