WomenStrong Consortium member Alice Visionary Foundation Project in Kenya is an international women’s health organization and women’s empowerment NGO that provides women’s health resources and women’s health education to the women and girls in the Kisumu slums of Manyatta, Kenya.
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.
