During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Kageno's MISSION is to transform impoverished communities into places of opportunity and hope - through the development of self-sustaining community directed programs in Education , Health , Ventures (Income Generation) , and Environment . We believe it is essential to sustainable development to work with the community rather than giving simple aid or handouts.
Kageno identifies ravaged communities suffering from impoverishment, AIDS, genocide and limited access to healthcare, clean water, and education. Working with local leaders to identify needs, we help villages build schools, health centers, pharmacies, and sanitation and clean water systems and develop programs to help them protect their fragile environments. We then build community centers with learning tools and internet access, identify training programs that support our efforts to build local economies. For example, on Rusinga Island in Kenya, we taught women crafts-making skills and distributed microloans to replace prostitution. In Banda Village, Rwanda, we are in the process of building an eco-lodge for tourists that will be staffed by individuals from the community which support many of our other initiatives.
