Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene (WASH) Program
Water, sanitation, and hygiene are all critical to reducing the burden of water-borne diseases. We work with a community based groups to find effective sanitation approaches that will contribute to a world where children and families lead healthier, more productive lives.
We aim to develop scalable business models and technologies capable of moving communities we work with from unsustainable to sustainable sanitation services across the sanitation value chain. We invest in technologies and methods for increasing sustainable access to clean water and hygiene.

Child Abuse Prevention Program
We work with our partner organization in an effort to stop child abuse and neglect and educate communities in Kenya. We support children who are forced to work for their survival and work with schools in Income Generating Activities to support children under situations that would lead to neglect and drop outs.
Our program helps create child protection teams within rural communities and helps create an organization of lawyers that offer free legal services to children whose rights have been violeted. We also participate in research activities on children's right, such as street children.

"Dear Friend" Pen Pal Program
The goal of the Dear Friend pen pal program is to sustain long-term, 1:1 relationships between as many pair of U.S. and Kenyan children as possible, and to help all participating children achieve literacy goals, heighten their cultural awareness, and feel the joy of knowing another child across the world cares about them.
This project will preserve the art of letter writing for our generation's children, teaching them to communicate well through the written word.
