Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.
Kageno’s mission is to transform communities suffering from inhumane poverty into places of opportunity and hope.
Kageno’s vision is to achieve sustainable solutions to global poverty through a comprehensive set of interdependent programs that address the complex web of issues faced by impoverished people, with balanced emphasis placed on economic
empowerment, conservation, community health, and education.
Kageno has proven that a comprehensive program that is initiated and led by the community can break cycles of poverty and lead communities toward sustainable, healthy, and productive futures. Kageno involves community members at all levels of assessment, design, implementation, and evaluation of programs that provide access to clean water, food, sanitation, health care, education, and income generation.
Recognizing that women and children suffer disproportionately from poverty, Kageno places special emphasis on serving these groups as a way to create permanent social change.
All of Kageno’s activities cross into one or more of the following fundamental program areas: Education, Health, Ventures (Income Generation), and Environment.
