MORE ABOUT THIS EVENT

Our efforts are geared toward providing lasting solutions to curb hunger and poverty amongst our beneficiaries and the community. Here’s Life CBO has been bringing women together and equipping them with skills and knowledge in income-generating activities to enable them start sustainable projects for self-sustainability. Most of the women targeted by this initiative were depending on handouts and begging in the streets.

Here’s Life CBO came in and worked to help them change their mindset.It’s then that we started a micro-finance program has enabled the women to start several projects which earn them some money to be self-sufficientand provide food for their families. This has happened without any external funds and only through group and personal initiatives.With a small parcel of land and using roadsides reserves they are adopting small-scale farming, growing papaya (pawpaw) trees, tomatoes, sukuma wiki (Kales) and Arrowroots. Some have been able to start grocery shops and roadside food stalls. The program currently has 103 widows and 100 vulnerable women who are affected and infected with HIV and AIDs.
