Meet Jane:
Jane had tried various business ventures in the past, but she did not know how to keep her accounts or how to separate her business money from her daily family expenses. After participating in our entrepreneurial training through Foundation WA's partnership program in Kenya, she realized all the things that had gone wrong in her previous businesses. Using the new business tools she learned, she now could create a successful business around a skill she had learned a long time ago--making charcoal. Along with her husband, she now makes an eco-friendly charcoal that lasts longer, is cheaper, and does not produce smoke, which is best for the environment and people's health. They have already purchased a machine that compresses the product and have many customers, including several hotels in the area.

To help women like Jane, join us October 28th for our First Virtual Benefit to promote our entrepreneurial program in Kenya. The aim is to help these women generate the income needed to escape poverty for themselves and their families. Our benefit this year does not have a formal location, enabling us to send all of your donations directly to our partner organizations. For further details, please refer to our event below or our website: http://www.womensadvancement.org/news/

Let me Introduce you to Anne:

Anne Wanjiku Njenga is a 36-year-old woman that lives in Kenya with her husband, a driver with unsteady work, and her four children. Having spent most of her adult life in poverty, Anne was selling eggs and bars of soap to each house in the neighborhood, yet with her husbands’ wavering wages, she was still barely making it. She was desperately determined to increase her income and draw her family out of poverty, but lacked the tools to do so.

Thanks to your contribution and the wonderful effective work our partner in Kenya, the Kianda Foundation is carrying out, Anne was able to turn her life around. She attended courses in business training to gain the proper skills and resources needed to raise her salary. Today, she owns her own small convenience store where she sells milk, eggs, fruit, freshly baked buns, and even tea! Now that she has received essential training, Anne is pulling her family out of poverty’s grip.
