Covid-19 Relief Fund for Africa-Protect our Slums

$2,745 of $30,000 raised

Develops and supports local leaders, catalyzes positive change and alleviates poverty in the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Driven by local needs, our programs advance health, education, ethnic cooperation, gender equality and economic development.

The Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya, is a microcosm of many of the world’s most challenging issues — poverty, poor health care, ethnic conflict, water shortage, HIV/AIDS, and lack of women’s rights. With more than 700,000 residents, Kibera is one of the most densely populated urban settlements in the world and east Africa’s largest slum.

We believe that solutions to poverty are best realized when those affected by it drive change. Outsiders can help by mobilizing people, advising, networking, and providing resources. Ultimately, however, the community has the knowledge and the motivation necessary to solve problems.

We also work to improve basic healthcare, sanitation, and education. GivetoAfrica saves lives, prevents ethnic and religious violence, and creates opportunities in a place that outsiders often cast away as hopeless.

Serving as a model for holistic, community-based urban development worldwide, GivetoAfrica has helped grassroots organizations develop youth-based programs in six other nations and dozens of communities in Kenya. We envision a world where the poor have a voice in their futures and opportunities for healthy growth.
