With a donation of Ksh. 1,750 (USD 17.50) you can ensure that a family of five in Kenya's slums does not go hungry for a week during the Corona crisis. The family receives a food and hygiene kit and support in situations of crisis and violence.
Tunza Jamii Initiative is committed to reduce the severe consequences of Corona pandemic - such as hunger, poverty and violence. We invite you to learn more and lend your support.
FOOD & HYGIENE KITS
We distribute food and hygiene kits to the poorest households in Kibera slum.
Why distributing food to the poor?
The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented challenge to the health, wellbeing and economy of people. The pandemic has altered the purchasing power of households and it is projected that the direct effects of the pandemic will be widespread hunger, malnutrition, mental illness, increased crime and violence due to the pressure to satisfy livelihoods.
What's in a food and hygiene kit?
A package contains rice, maize flour, green grams, beans, sugar, cooking oil, wheat flour as well as hygiene masks, liquid soap / bar soap, sanitizer, and sanitary pads.
HOTLINE FOR REDUCING VIOLENCE
Call 1195 for support regarding gender-based violence, sexualized and domestic violence as well as criminal violence
We strengthen employability through entrepreneurial skills building
Women and young adults often lack skills and access to capital and markets to grow a business and create jobs. The project enables income-poor women to grow their existing small businesses, raise their income, build a livelihood for themselves and their families, and create employment opportunities for others.
