WomenStrong Kenya

Alice Visionary Foundation Project

Location

Kenya

Alice Visionary Foundation Project was founded in 2005 to help people directly affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in a village outside Kenya’s third largest city, Kisumu. AVFP provides help for orphans and vulnerable children, school feeding programs, education, group savings and loan programs and empowerment initiatives for women and girls.

Our Work Together

WomenStrong has enabled AVFP to expand its efforts to address the needs of women and girls in the Kisumu slums of Manyatta, whose sewage-clogged waterway empties into Lake Victoria. WomenStrong programs include savings groups that support women in creating small businesses and upgrading their environment, and an initiative to end corporal violence in schools and at home. WomenStrong-sponsored Girls’ and Mothers’ Clubs strengthen literacy and leadership skills, self-esteem and sisterhood, pointing the way out of extreme urban poverty.
