Inua Village to Global Foundation is an organization based in Kenya, working to solve various social and economic development challenges for rural communities for the last three years. 60% of Kenya’s population live in a rural settlement where infrastructure such as electricity grid, road networks, better schools, and even water supplies have not been connected. With these realities- the majority of Kenya’s population still practice subsistence farming, there is little transitioning to a higher level of education, many families have no access to electricity, healthcare, and many others. These challenges precipitate high-level poverty, Huge economic inequality, hence low or at times lack access to quality education.
With the high level of poverty, women and girls become exposed and vulnerable to gender-based violence, limited participation in governance and leadership roles, and even in some areas to practices such as female genital mutilation.
Inua Village to Global Foundation is leveraging on various community resources to help alleviate poverty, build schools to make access to quality education a reality for thousands of children, establishing community-based industries to move communities to manufacture, Enhancing agri-business and value-added farming to move families to sustainability and building community-based cooperatives to promote financial inclusion, growth, and sustainable development.
