Women-led

Kalyet Afya Foundation

Kalyet Afya Foundation (KAF) is a women-led Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) registered in Kenya with the NGO board in 2017 to operate in 5 counties; Nakuru, Baringo, Bomet, Kericho, and Narok. KAF is located at Sachangwan Location along Nakuru- Eldoret Highway in Molo Sub-County. KAF started its operation in 2019 to empower marginalized rural communities, particularly women and girls, to realize their SRHR, and access family planning and other health services. Additionally, KAF runs an environmental conservation program to improve community nutrition, provide fuel (tree pruning), increase income by selling fruits, and ultimately conserve the environment. We focus on 3 thematic areas: Health, Environment and Economic Empowerment.

Mission

To ensure marginalized rural communities fully realize their rights to health,
sexual reproductive health and family planning through provision of relevant information
and services and eradicate poverty by creating a communal space for women to work and
aspire for a better future through empowerment projects and creating a sustainable
environment through conservation.

Past results

We run two projects in health and environmental conservation. In the past two years KAF reached 15,000 people.

The two projects contribute to:

  • Reduced unwanted pregnancies resulting in reduced unsafe abortions, with high health risks for women; and reduced teen pregnancies and thus more girls staying in school.
  • Reduced incidences of STIs, including HIV.
  • Women who can control when to have children (spacing), including improvement in women’s health; reduction of mortality in children below 5 years; and women who can engage in studies or income generating activities.
  • Trees planted by farmers and school children, resulting in a source of income, food as well as shelter, using the timber and fruits; prevention of soil erosion and purified air; and provision of shelter to wildlife.
