COVID-19 is a crisis like no other. The most vulnerable in society are particularly affected. Most caregivers in our program have lost their businesses or employment, leading to financial distress and various related challenges. Former street-connected girls often find themselves back in the situations that once made them leave their families. They are at risk of returning to the streets. Help us raise USD 10,000 to support 50 families to keep former street-connected girls out of the street during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All donations given will go directly to support families of former street-connected girls who are affected by the pandemic in Nairobi and other parts of Kenya. This is primarily for basic needs such as food, rent and COVID protective gear. Meanwhile, we will monitor the cases closely and try our very best to ensure that all of our beneficiaries get through the crisis in the best possible way.
The campaign is based on a COVID-19 needs assessment of our beneficiaries to assess the current living conditions and get to know their current challenges, immediate and long-term needs. The report can be found here.
