Project 1

Child Education Support and Development (CESaD) Project

Purpose:

Western Kenya has one of the highest rates of HIV and AIDS. This has left many children orphaned and vulnerable, and without a safety net to fall back on. ADRA Kenya’s Child Education and Support (CESaD) project aims at two things:

First, we put orphaned and vulnerable children back in school. Second, we empower their caregivers through income generating activities, allowing them to adequately support their families into the future.

Impact:

Direct beneficiaries – 3,276 children

Indirect beneficiaries – 7,809 people

Project 2

Kajiado School and Rescue Center Education Project

Purpose:

Kajiado Girls Rehabilitation Center serves as a rescue center for Maasai girls who have escaped FGM. The price they pay for making such as a stand is huge. Sometimes they are disowned by their parents and are forced to drop out of school. ADRA Kenya through the support of ADRA Germany pays for such girls’ school fees and essential supplies.

With the help of SLOVAKAID, the school has access to water storage tanks. Seven tanks for rain water harvesting were installed, two for 10,000 liters, four for 5000 liters and one for 8000 liters.

Impact:

Direct beneficiaries – 182 girls
