OUR CORE VALUES
Agriculture contributes approximately 25% to Kenya’s GDP and employs directly and indirectly 75% of the population. There is a sizeable proportion of the population that is food insecure and this provides a good opportunity for women and youth to step in and tap into solution gap through gainful engagement in the agricultural sector.
Our country is a youthful one with 60% of the populace falling below 35 years of age. With high levels of unemployment, the youth are thus the most affected. This translates to high dependency ratio and low savings which impacts on the investments that can be realised. At the national level, high priority competing budgetary needs puts a lot of strain on resources directed towards health, security and education which makes it impossible to channel resources to long term development projects.
Access to clean water significantly affects the quality of life. This includes water for both domestic and commercial use. At the local level, many diseases can be avoided if the people access adequate amounts of water that they can use in their homes. By extension, sanitation standards are directly related to the amount and the quality of water that is availed to the populace.
Women make substantial contribution to socio-economic development especially in the agricultural sector. The society gives little chance to women to enter into other fields of various economic activities. They are burdened with family and house-hold responsibilities, especially in semi-urban and rural areas. When their status changes and they become widows, there are other challenges that comes along among them discrimination and limited access to credit.
Dignity is when every human has a decent place to rest their head at the end of every day. We give Decent and Habitable Shelter to Widows and Orphans through identification of most needy/dire housing situations. We allow the widows to select homes where new houses are to be constructed.
