The Challenges Families Face in Kenya
10 million people live below the poverty line in Kenya. That means 1 out of 5 people are going hungry every single day. As we worked with families in Kenya, they identified the four challenges that prevent them from thriving in life.
Nutritious food, clean water, educational fees, and menstrual hygiene are solvable problems.
We can show you how YOU can make an impact in the lives of thes families, giving them a hand up instead of a handout.

When a family is struggling with how to eat, nothing else matters. Day after day, their thoughts are consumed by the same fear. How will I feed my children?
Women in rural Kenya have to walk an average of 6 hours every single day to access water…and it’s not even clean water. They share it with animals.
Education is everything in Kenya. It is THE Path out of Poverty for the next generation. If a family is living on less than $1 a day, how will they pay for school fees?
When a girl begins menstruating and doesn’t have access to pads, she misses school. As a result, many girls exchange pads for sex. This should never happen.
Our Path out of Poverty Program
We have worked with over 800 families in our Path Out of Poverty Program. That’s how we know it works. We’ve seen it take a family from less than a dollar a day, to over $100 each month in less than two years.
We believe that with mentoring, training, support, and the right resources, families can not just survive, but thrive.
We start with teaching families how to grow their own food, and sell excess vegetables for an income. This includes a garden tower for every 5 family members, and a water tank to store the water they need for the gardens.
A vertical garden tower can feed a family of 5 up to 8 meals a day. It takes 30 liters of water each week, and can grow during drought.
When they show stewardship over what they have been given, they are able to earn a micro-business. They are able to raise chickens, both to provide an income for their families, and have eggs to eat.
5 egg laying chickens and a rooster can grow year after year into a business that raises a family above the poverty line in rural Kenya.
Every year, we identify widows and single mothers who are struggling, and gift a goat. The goat is pregnant and is able to provide milk to drink and sell. Goats milk is valuable in Kenya, and can help a family in need.
It helps to strengthen a community, when the neediest families have a way to take care of themselves. We have seen the impact it can make!
