BENEFITING: UWEZA AID FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Sep 15, 2015
Since 2008, Uweza has worked to empower children, youth, and women living in the Kibera slum of Nairobi Kenya. We invest in better futures for community members through education, talent development, life skills building and economic empowerment.
In the last few years, we have grown tremendously in direct response to an increased demand for our programs and services among residents of Kibera. This year, we are urgently in need of support to bridge a gap in funding and continue providing a support system and safety net for women and children in need.
Your support will enable us to continue providing the following programs and services:
- Educational scholarships for primary school, high school, and university students
- Life skills and empowerment clubs for girls
- The Uweza Art Gallery and art classes for youth artists from Kibera, deaf children, and children with disabilities
- Business training and microfinance services for young mothers
- After-school tutoring, library services, and computer training
- Journalism Club for Kibera chilren and youth
- Soccer league for boys and girls ages 4 and up
- Rescue houses for vulnerable boys and girls
- Counseling and mentoring services and emergency social support
