The Campaign Against Poverty Foundation (CAP) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit making organization funded by partners and well-wishers. It is duly registered in Kenya as an NGO. Our head office is in Nairobi.
CAP seeks to bring people and institutions together to combat poverty in Africa. We provide a platform on which any person or institution willing to play a part in fighting this scourge can easily and conveniently do so in a desirable and manageable way.
Education reduces poverty by increasing individual income and boosting economic growth. It increases a person’s chances of having a healthy life, enhances maternal health and access to health services.
This is a critical initiative in the years 2022 to 2026. We seek to achieve this through;
- Provision of materials that enhance literacy and other educational components to the marginalized.
- Providing entrepreneurial training to college students and the unemployed in communities; and sourcing markets for their products and services.
- Motivating pupils in primary schools through successful motivational speakers.
- Training teachers on pedagogy skills.
2. WATER AND SANITATION
Water is life! In many cases, many people in Africa lack water due to poor harvesting and storage. Searching for water consumes a lot of time which could otherwise be used for economic activities. Dirty water and unhygienic living conditions also cause diseases which deplete incomes. We therefore strive to provide clean water and sanitation to marginalized communities in both rural and urban communities.
Agricultural practices enhance food security while increasing incomes from the farmer to the consumer, in both rural and urban areas.
4. ENVIRONMENT CONSERVATION
The depletion and pollution of natural resources have the greatest impact on the poor. Afforestation, environmental education and conservation are key aspects in this initiative.
