Growing Beyond Cultural Limitations

Attir Village, Kenya

Attir Village was one of the communities which never understood the importance of education for girls. The village only viewed girls as a source of wealth because of the dowry paid at marriage. No one thought of educating a girl, only a boy. This mentality changed when GHNI stepped in and taught the importance of education and equal opportunities for both genders. After learning more, Attir realized its mistake and decided to drop cultural ideas about a girl’s role.

Making Water Accessible to All

Shambani Village, Kenya

It has been a long road for the Shambani community because they have all been fetching water from one of the main boreholes in the village. Villagers who live far away depended on water from the same borehole and it is very tiresome for them to travel a long way, especially for the older villagers. Without coming to the main borehole, these villagers would remain thirsty.

Mama Nater is one of the beneficiaries of the GHNI loan program. Before she got her loan, she depended solely on her small business of selling peremende (sweets), biscuits, tea and other small items for income. But things changed after GHNI taught villagers the ways of investing on capital and how to use available resources around them. Mama Nater requested and was given a loan since GHNI’s work is to raise the living standard of the people by assisting them.
