More ways to make a dent in poverty

Although our microfinance program is very effective, there are other programs that we use to break the cycle of poverty.

Sponsor a child
Our monthly child sponsorship program provides food, clothing, and an excellent education for the poorest of the poor in the Mathare Valley slum of Nairobi, Kenya. You can choose a child with whom you can build a relationship as they go through school for just a little more than $1 or $2 per day.

Sponsor an HIV/AIDS patient
$15 per month provides the antiretroviral medications, supplements, and food that could lengthen the life and productivity of an HIV+ individual. Your gift could also be the catalyst for the birth of healthy babies whose mothers are HIV+.

Take a Bite Out of Malaria
Malaria decimates the health, strength, and productivity of millions each day. A simple bed net costing $10 can save a family from malaria, and contribute to a healthier neighborhood.

Donate to a clean water project
A majority of Kenya's population is without safe water. Through a variety of Overflow:Water for Kenya projects, Kenyans will have access to safe water and employ better means of sanitation.
