AHCP (Nairobi, Kenya)

Africa Health and Community Program focuses on providing opportunities to the women, children and youth living in low-resource and impoverished communities in Kenya. We deliver support in form of need driven interventions especially in the areas of women empowerment, entrepreneurship, child and adult education, health, sanitation and computer literacy. We believe that sustainability and participation-driven community empowerment will continue to be fundamental instruments for development and poverty reduction in the decades ahead. Our overarching goal is to create a self-reliant community capable of efficiency and adequately responding to its needs using an integrated and inclusive approach.
