Current Partners

Netherlands Protestant Church

With generous support from Netherlands Protestant church, we have been able to set up a small sewing center for making reusable sanitary pads and school bags. The program has so far built and donated 150 kits.

Kenya been hit with prolonged wet season and flooding in almost every part of the country, for this reason, reusable kits are not very helpful. Using the same support from Protestant Church of Netherlands, we have been providing our beneficiaries with disposable menstrual pads.

We are optimistic that our partnership will grow to establish virtual learning centers across Kenya and east Africa using CTB portal.

Past Partners

Government of Kenya

We are grateful to the Kenyan government for partnership and support through various offices and government agencies. We are happy for approval, support and collaborations to on multiple programs like:

2017 Peacebuilding before general elections

Elections in Kenya has been synonymous with violence. Although our peacebuilding program runs throughout the year, we put more efforts during political campaigns and electioneering periods because this is mostly the time that the country is more polarized and divided into tribal and pollical grounds. Kenya has a bad elections violence history that we want to overturn. We are grateful to the local government agencies through the ministry of interior (local chiefs and district officers) for approval of our work and moral support.
