When we help you... we help others.
We love to give back in meaningful and impactful ways. In gratitude for your support for us, for every patient we see, we give back to various causes that align with our values and that make a difference in the lives of others.
The Third Ground Project
We are a major sponsor of the Third Ground Project in Central St Sarina, a coffee shop, grassroots marketplace, and backyard community garden and homesteading school. TG exists to connect people in the local community with great food, and with each other, by using the concepts of the "third space" and "re-village-ing".
Orthotics = Giving Goats to Farmers
For every patient that needs custom orthotics, we provide a Kenyan family with a goat and breeding infrastructure. Through this income can be generated through the sale of anti-HIV goats milk and goats meat and, of course, the sale of goat kids. In the long-term, the production of other products such as soap, cheese, and yoghurt for sale at local markets will create additional income as well.
Uniforms for nurses
For every single patient we see, we make a contribution towards several giving projects. One of these is giving a nurse a uniform for a day so they can continue to provide crucial healthcare to families living in extreme poverty in Kenya. The Odede Community Health Centre employs 18 local staff, including several nurses, and you can support them to treat thousands of patients every year. It is located in a rural community where most people live in extreme poverty on less than $1 a day. These nurses provide life-saving medical care every day for children and families in Odede, and this project helps to support them to continue this amazing work.
Hygiene Kits for Girls
For every single patient we see, we make a contribution towards several giving projects. One of these is providing women and girls in Kenya with basic female hygiene necessities such as sanitary pads. In Kenya, many women and girls living in poverty cannot afford to purchase disposable pads, and so use unsanitary and unhygienic materials such as old rags, which can cause infections. Many girls will stay home from school because they are embarrassed to attend school, missing a week of school every month - this can add up to 10 or more weeks a year! Many fall behind and drop out of school. This project helps to improve hygiene, comfort and even education by helping girls to access basic essentials.
Bricks for Classrooms
For every single patient we see, we make a contribution towards several giving projects. One of these is buying bricks to build a new classroom. Many classrooms in Kenya remain extremely overcrowded, often catering up to 100 students per class, reducing the effectiveness of education. This project increases the level of engagement between teachers and students, enabling these students to learn better and develop into well-educated and responsible adults in the future.
