What We Do
We work with girls and young women from rural communities in Kenya to empower them economically. Life Lifters runs a two-tier program that is focused on girl education and entrepreneurship. Our girl education program is targeted at smart underprivileged girls between the ages of 13-20 who are currently in school and aspire to be the next leaders in the community. In this program we empower girls by supporting their education through scholarships and provision of key resources such as books sanitary towels. Our mentors also work with the girls to provide them with key trainings on human rights and equip them with useful hard and soft skills to survive.
Our entrepreneurship program is fully targeted at girls and young mothers who for one reason or another are out of school an cannot go back. In this program Life Lifters invests resources in training these young women on how to launch, manage and grow their own businesses. We provide special trainings in hairdressing, farming, business management and financial management that are tailored at providing a secondary or even primary source of income to these women.
