IPI improved 30,000 women’s and children’s lives since 2003 with tools to become self-reliant. And in the past 11 years, 1000 orphans completed primary and secondary education, 30 attained a Bachelor’s degree, 5 a Masters’ and 1 completed a PhD programme.
Moreover, we have created a model for orphan’s care that works and empowers orphans to take charge of their lives through the various empoweredness programmes we have created at the home.
Cost effectiveness: on average €100 per child or woman (including overhead costs).
Our older kids come back to work at the home, enhancing the work of IPI. We have an experienced Executive Director and a Programme Director – all beneficiaries of IPI and KACH. The CEO Dr Karambu Ringera, the founder of the programme, works directly in the field to ensure the success of the projects on the ground.
1,250 farmers’ family members and school children will benefit from a higher produce of ecological vegetables and fruits. Made possible by water harvesting in the semi-arid area of Njuruta and the planting of food forests, that in turn restores the nature of the land to the lush area it once was.
