Muhaka Village is located on the south coast of Kenya where more than 70% of people here are living below the poverty line. Less than half of all children have access to an education, resulting in most of the adult population lacking basic literacy skills. Without these key skills, it’s very hard to find employment and therefore the cycle of poverty continues. Our projects have improved facilities at the local primary school and we are now focusing our attention on the wider community, facilitating skills training to improve employment prospects for young people.
