Can you imagine sending your child to a school that has no books? That’s the situation in the remote Kenyan schools where SCOPE works.
Water-borne diseases kill more people every year around the world than any other cause, and most of the victims are children. SCOPE provides latrines and hand washing stations for children to use.
SCOPE trains community health workers. These women go door-to-door in their villages and help people with basic medical issues and refer them to a clinic or hospital for more serious issues.
SCOPE’s partner school communities have a variety of agricultural projects in the works: tree farming, fish farming, greenhouse construction, organic high yield farming, bee-keeping, and more.
SCOPE has linked self help groups with trainers providing instruction on micro finance, business planning, and table banking.
This project has provided sanitary towels for approximately 2,500 of the 4,500 girls that need them. Girls often miss up to five days of school during their menstrual cycle.
