Economic Empowerment & Agriculture
HELPING KENYANS PROVIDE FOR THEMSELVES, NUTRITIONALLY AND ECONOMICALLY.
As we began responding to healthcare needs in Kenya, we realized treatment didn’t fully solve our patients’ problems. More than 36% of 44 million Kenyans live below the poverty line, and need support with basic nutrition and job security.
Our economic empowerment and agriculture programs marry those two key needs together, helping Kenyans become successful farmers, small business owners, or providers for their families. Not only do Kenyans get the nutritional basics they need to stay healthy, but they also grow their own economic success that can be sustained for generations to come.

AREAS OF FOCUS
AFFORDABLE HEALTH INSURANCE FOR ALL.
We’re partnering with Kenya’s Ministry of Health and the National Hospital Insurance Fund to make comprehensive health insurance accessible and affordable for all Kenyans. Increasing wealth among communities only adds to the affordability of such critical coverage.
