Help us Build a Classroom in Kenya
WE helps people around the world build up stable, thriving communities that give them the power and dignity to support themselves. For two decades, WE has been engineering an international development model to end poverty. It works. It’s proven. It’s scalable. It’s not a handout or a single solution, but a combination of key interventions that empower a community to help themselves. WE’s core mission is to empower people to create positive change around them. Our family has been to Kenya and has witnessed the work of WE Charity, and how sustainable it is.
WE will be fundraising for WE Chairty’s work in Kenya, within the community of Oloirien. The community of Oloirien is a peaceful one, located in the Narok South District in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. The community of Oloirien faces many social and economic challenges. The majority of community members are living on less than $2 per day. Illiteracy rates are very high in the community, especially among women, with 60 percent of men and 80 percent of women having no basic literacy skills. Recurring drought and famine, early marriage, poor quality education and high levels of child labour perpetuate the cycle of poverty. Through WE Villages, we will help to break the cycle of poverty in Oloirien by providing quality education, health care, clean water and sanitation facilities and new economic opportunities through alternative income programs.
