Jacque Iveria Khabere, Promise Hill Project Volunteer and Social Worker, reached out to a group of adolescents in need on the Kenyan Coast. Through Promise Hill Project, Jacque distributed food, water, period products and underwear. Their special day also included a trip to a local museum and time at the beach.
But she didn’t stop there….
The ramifications of the global pandemic and life in lockdown proved to be too much for many Kenyan youth to handle. Lockdown life often lead to suicide, rape, depression and mental and physical violence within their own homes.
This adolescent outreach event provided 20 young girls and boys with a safe place to talk about things they experienced throughout lockdown. It served as an opportunity to build self-esteem while allowing them to relax, enjoy one another’s company, and just be kids!
We are so grateful to have such an amazing volunteer serving the needs of youth in Kenya. Thank you, Jacque!
Our piped water system provides clean drinking water and the prospects of a healthier future to 574 people in need!
A recent update from World Visions is as follows:
“We are multiplying the health benefits of clean water by addressing sanitation and hygiene in Mogotio- Magoi Community Water Project. Activities include helping people build and maintain latrines, promoting hand washing with soap, and establishing open defecation free communities. When combined, water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions can reduce child disease and death, support child protection and access to education, and reduce gender disparities”
Promise Hill Project has personally waited years to be able to serve the Maasai Tribe- the most traditional tribe in Kenya. Unfortunately, due to the continued spread of Covid-19, we were not able to make the annual trip to Kenya to attend this distribution. However, Promise Hill Project is forever grateful to our volunteers- Michael Maura and Dave Muema for making this happen!
A total of 24 females were served with period products. They were mixed age groups- teens from 12 years of age all the way up to ladies over 50 years. The elderly ladies received pads to take to the younger ladies in their homesteads. COVID-19 PANDEMIC
“Promise Hill Project cautiously continues to serve throughout the global pandemic. We hope that everyone continues to social distance, mask and sanitize – for your safety, for ours and for the safety of Elders, youth and the immunocompromised.” ~Lisa Arbogast, Founder
As part of our Basic Needs Program, Promise Hill carried out community feeding + economic household sustainability programs in Majengo + Kanamai Villages
In September, dedicated volunteers served 40 families, reaching approximately 250 people with food and supplies.
Volunteers taught women and children how to start small sack kitchen gardens from papaya, amaranth and tomato seedlings, thereby providing a ready source of vegetables available at home, even when they lack money and/or employment.
Hand sanitizer and masks were distributed to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.
Thank you to our dedicated donors and volunteers for continuing to support the Promise Hill Mission in America, Kenya and India.
Fighting period poverty one step at a time through our Basic Needs Program!
Promise Hill provided period products to young girls in need at Shammah School in Ruai- Nairobi, Kenya.
OUR TIMING WAS PERFECT! The School Director noted that they had ZERO period products in house.
Promise Hill visited and provided them with just what they needed.
These young girls in need were genuinely happy and grateful.
We are so appreciative of the donors, volunteers and Elders who continue to serve our mission.
