We envision a Kenya where access to a high-quality education is the norm for all children and where women and young people are empowered and then engaged to lead change in their local communities.
To empower vulnerable members of the community through sensitisation and education for meaningful participation in building a just and equitable society.
Eliminating disparities in education, social and economic status for prosperity within the local community.
We aspire to see a society in which fundamental rights/needs are met.
Words from Our Founder
“In the 35 years that I have been involved in girls’ rescue, protection and women empowerment in my Maa community, I have realized that the issues aforementioned are complex and wrapped around the intricacies of Harmful Traditional Practices compounded by the prevalent low-levels of education.
To enable the girls and women stay safe, make informed choices and fully contribute to the economy, we as HELGA acknowledge the need for strategic partnerships committed to mainstreaming the voices of women and girls, as well as creating safe spaces in local communities.
Join us by leaving your footprint in this journey of attaining a world of equal opportunities for girls and women in our pastoral communities.”
