Classroom Construction Project

Sharon Jelagat

Vota Village, Machakos County

During the rainy season, most children in the community miss school because of heavy rain and flooded roads. The project seeks to reduce the walking distance to school for the children in Kikawahani and Manza villages. Currently, the children learn in a church that lacks appropriate furniture and doesn’t provide a conducive environment for learning. The project seeks to provide a stimulating learning environment that is easily accessible, well-organized, and nurturing to the children in the neighborhood.

Funding Request: ~$2,349.13

Beekeeping and Tree Nursery Project

Raphael Kivuva

Rrorian Village, Narok County

The majority of the Rrorian village lives below the poverty line, unable to access basic needs. The Beekeeping and Tree Nursery Project will include setting up a beekeeping station and a tree nursery. To ensure that the project is sustainable, sunflowers will be grown to improve honey production. Oil will be extracted using a centrifuge machine and training will be done on honey harvesting and fruit tree grafting. The combination of these three activities will provide a viable source of livelihood for members of the community.

Funding Request: ~$1,770.27

Goat Farming Project

Maureen Njuhi

Elerai Village, Kajiado County

The project aims to increase the income of community members by selling goat milk and using the proceeds for breeding and meat supply. Initially, Alpine goats will be bought when they are 3 months pregnant and in 2 months, the community can begin selling their milk. Community members will cultivate lucerne and hay to provide food for the goats and reduce the expense of purchasing feeds. The milk will be sold and the proceeds put in a bank. A Community-Based Organization (CBO) will be created and registered to ensure accountability and sustainability.
