Our mission at Jali Foundation is to empower Kenya and Tanzania growing number of young, single mothers to become self-sufficient and able to educate and support their families.
Kijiji Mission – Empower Kenyan and Tanzanian Women through Education
Kijiji Mission, a project of Jali Foundation provides vocational training to Kenyan and Tanzanian women who are striving to become self-sufficient and provide for their families’ basic needs. The majority of the women in this program are young, single mothers who are struggling to feed their families. The women undergo an extensive one-year tailoring course.
Once a woman graduates from the program she receives a small business loan allowing her to purchase her own treadle sewing machine. She is then able to start her own tailoring business and earn an income that can provide food, education and basic necessities for her family.
Empowering women to shape their destiny
Provide a New Home
Our Kijiji Mission has a capacity to house up to 30 women from vulnerable environments. Here we provide a safe and clean environment and access to training facilities.
Train Useful Skills
In a 12-month training program the ladies will learn key tailoring skills and develop positive habits for developing their imagination, discipline and collaboration skills that they will need for the business world.
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Homeless Outreach is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
