Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working in the informal settelments of Nairobi that believes in the capacity of the urban poor to create better futures for themselves. SHOFCO's key innovation is that we link schools for girls to community services for all, building vibrant, gender equitable communities where all are able to realize their full potential. Through grassroots leadership, we empower urban communities to thrive through health, education, and economic opportunities while creating the next generation of female leaders through our free schools for girls. 

Your support helps sustain our current work and increases our capacity, expanding our innovative model into new communities. Join us! Together we are more than a school--we're a movement.
