Did you know
Build Africa is working with vulnerable girls in Kwale, Kenya, to ensure that young women cam start to feel safer, and that communities work together to support their education.
83% of disadvantaged girls the charity worked with last year now demonstrate a higher level of self-worth, whilst 91% now see themselves as a positive role model.
92% of those the charity worked with on their Wasichana Project in Kenya now say they feel better protected from violence and abuse in their community.
What makes Build Africa different
The charity's continued consultation process gives the people they work with a voice, and ensures that they can continue to directly identify their priorities, the problems they face, and the solutions that are needed. Build Africa takes time to understand the unique needs of each community they work with, and they aim to always maintain strong, ongoing relationships with the people they work with. "We listen to people, and empower them to create genuine change for their communities."
