the Alliance for Improved Public Health in Africa
We're a non-profit organization run by volunteers, on a mission to provide life-changing public health solutions for Africans in need.
Girls 4 Year High School Public Health Scholarship Program
We have continued our partnership with the Loita Olodoare Women's Community Based Organization (LWCBO) after we began providing sanitary kits and shoes to adolescent girls attending school in Western Kenya. Ongoing conversations with LOITA led us to jointly identify more work that we could support. Now, we have since grown our partnership with LOITA by sending girls to high school with a full public health scholarship covering all room and board costs, along with transportation to and from their homes to school for the entire year. We hope to send as many girls as possible; and, with your help we can!
Composting Toilets in Kenya
We have partnered with Humanure Kenya to build toilets using scientific composting technology. These toilets convert human waste into compost for fertilizing crops. The composting process eliminates the risk of infection resulting from contamination of ground and drinking water. Read more about how these toilets will have a massive impact on the health of a community in Kenya.
Empowering schoolgirls through sanitation
In the Maasai communities of western Kenya, the challenges for girls to stay in school increase as they get older due to gender apartheid, early marriage, and the lack of resources and facilities to appropriately manage monthly menstruation. This leads to missed school and shaming.
