Women-led NGO

Organization of Local Communities Against Poverty

OLCAP’s mission is to reduce the burden of poverty and improve the quality of life of people living in rural areas in Kenya. We will use this first-hand experience and expertise to ensure that the project is successful and contributes to poverty reduction among the beneficiaries, their families, and the community.

Past results

Lives improved

In the past two years, OLCAP (Organization of Local Communities Against Poverty) supported over 5,000 men, women, adolescents and widows in a variety of poverty reduction and health projects. Results are income from pig rearing or a vegetable stall; improved study skills & better exam results after mentorship program sessions; reduced incidents of disease after health education training or health outreaches; income from a tailoring business.

Concerning the pig rearing project; a successful pilot was done with a recipient, who has already donated two piglets to a second beneficiary.

Cost effectiveness

Ksh1,657 (or €13) is spent per recipient in the past two years (this includes overhead costs).

And the team is well equipped in assessing the needs of the communities and creating a plan that ensures the project is sustainable and meets its goals. The team brings the following:
