COVID-19 Response: Girls Empowerment

Emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic compound existing inequalities, and women and girls often suffer the most. During this difficult time, CFK is committed to continuing its support of women and girls in Kibera. We are carrying out our mentorship program over the phone and through WhatsApp group messages, delivering sanitary napkins and food, and continuing to provide essential sexual and reproductive health services 

Learn more from our Impact Manager, Ann Kungu, about how we are continuing to empower girls during this difficult time.
