CFK’s Primary Healthcare initiative offers a truly holistic approach to care, providing healthcare services for people at all stages of life. Through a dual focus on prevention and treatment, we aim to break intergenerational health disparities in the Kibera community.
HIGH RISK OF
Education & Livelihoods
CFK’s Education Program focuses on a multifaceted approach to learning. In Kibera, because of the cost of formal schools, learning looks different from person to person. We focus on offering both an in-classroom approach to education as well as vocational skills training and work readiness initiatives.
Adolescent girls and young women face many challenges growing up in Kibera. Of those challenges, nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls is either pregnant or already a mother. The Girls Empowerment Program serves more than 2,000 girls ages 9-20 annually, and helps girls discover their personal leadership capabilities and build confidence through a combination of mentorship and advocacy efforts. With our help, girls have the opportunity for a thriving future.
