Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We combat intergenerational cycles of poverty and gender inequality in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya, by linking tuition-free schools for girls to essential social services for all through a holistic, community-driven approach. By concretely linking essential health and economic services to a school for girls, we demonstrate that benefiting women benefits the whole community, cultivating a community ethos that makes women respected members of society.
Shining Hope for Communities believes in integrated and community-driven initiatives to combat extreme poverty. Our two-part approach places women at the center of community development. Our core program is the Kibera School for Girls, the first and only free school for girls in Kibera. Adjacent to the Kibera School for Girls is the Johanna Justin-Jinich Community Clinic, a bio-latrine center, a water access point, and the Shining Hope Community Center, which houses initiatives serving the entire community. Together, our projects address the most severe local deficits in education, health, sanitation, food security, literacy, skill training, and economic development. Our multi-faceted model delivers deeply effective, high impact results.
