G100 Philanthropy, Business and Poverty Eradication wing held meetings in Nairobi, Kenya in February and March 2023. These were instrumental in identifying initiatives and platforms that are useful in curbing the challenges experienced in the vulnerable demographics of poverty-stricken communities.
The meeting was held mainly in Nairobi with a number of activities lined to include visiting a children’s, a women and children centre – meeting with potential collaborating partners such as Kingsway Group, the Malaysia High Commission in Kenya as well as launching the G100 Kenya Philanthropy, Business and Poverty Eradication attended by women leaders in Kenya.
The meetings held with partners from different areas identified the potential collaborations that could in the short and long term, create sustainable models that would educate, train, uplift and empower women. One of the centres we visited already trains the women how to make soap which they in turn sell to the members of the church. This is a sustainable model that aims to uplift and empower women to be able to take care of basic needs in the home – feeding the family, school uniforms etc.
