BENEFITING: RIGHT 2 THRIVE

CJ Griffin

THE STORY:

It's #GivingTuesday!!  This year, I joined the Board of Directors for Right 2 Thrive. Working primarily in Nairobi, Kenya where the average income is $3 per day, Right 2 Thrive provides residents with necessary skills to earn an income, increase their employability, build their own businesses, and develop leadership skills. I am attracted to this program because it empowers women to feel more worthy and to use that self empowerment and self worthiness to earn income, to send their children to school, to keep their families together, and to reach their full potential. 

I also love that it takes so little of our US Dollars to have a HUGE impact in the lives of so many others.  I seek to raise $1,000 through this fundraiser. Friends, I hope you'll join me in supporting this organization!

Here's a more detailed overview of Right 2 Thrive's programs, but I encouage you to watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wEffu7uHyg

Empowerment Program
A series of self-affirming, educational, skills training, and income-generating classes and workshops.  First, the students learn basic concepts of personal empowerment and self worth.  Then the students learn English, how to make income-generating crafts such as handbags and beaded jewelry, and how to sell those products.

Business Entrepreneurship Program
Open to those who have completed prerequisite courses of the Empowerment Program, this program provides intensive business training and mentorship.

Secondary School Sponsorship Program
Provides financial and emotional support to at-risk youth who would otherwise not be able to complete secondary school.

Community Leadership Development Program
Offering residents a safe and productive space to discuss issues concerning their community and a platform to initiate change.

The Kustawi Project
An opportunity for graduates of the Empowerment Program to continue to practice their newly acquired handcraft skills.
