Shining Hope for Communities


New York, NY

http://shininghopeforcommunities.org/

Shining Hope for Communities is changing the lives of thousands of girls and women in the Kibera slum of Nairobi. Girls in Kibera face tremendous obstacles to securing an education and protecting their physical and emotional health. Beyond the daily hardship of life in extreme poverty, girls also face horrific rates of sexual assault and incest, and lack access to basic needs like food, shoes, clothing, and sanitary napkins. Shining Hope for Communities combats gender inequality and extreme poverty in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya, by linking tuition free schools for girls to accessible social services for all. These social services include a community health clinic, clean toilet initiative, youth and community education, and economic development. By investing in health and economic success through a school for girls, we demonstrate that benefiting women benefits the whole community, cultivating a community ethos that makes women respected members of society and engines of prosperity and social change for their community. The future of women in impoverished and patriarchal environments depends on concrete, integrated links between education and community elevation.
