Description

TATUA KENYA PROJECT

Promoting 'Ground-Up' Solutions to Poverty in Kenya.

Currently Kenya is dominated by a 'top-down' approach to poverty in which solutions originate from voices separated from the 'on-the-ground' experience of poverty. Tatua Kenya is reversing this approach by providing opportunities for the local community, those 'on-the-ground,' to join in the creation of solutions to Kenya's poverty crisis.

Our program involves two components. One, we run Be the Change – Kenya. Be the Change is our flagship initiative and a model of Tatua Kenya's 'ground-up' approach to poverty alleviation working towards the eradication of child poverty in Kenya. Two, we strengthen the work of local Kenyan organizations by providing access to high-quality community organizing training.

Be the Change - Kenya works towards the eradication of child poverty by building the capacity of local leaders and organizations. We work alongside the Kenyan community to build relationships, mobilize local resources and create sustainable solutions for children living in poverty in Kenya. In 2012 we developed partnerships with five local organizations that are providing direct aid to children living in poverty. In 2012 partners participated in a multi-faceted management-training program that included course work, executive mentorship and access to a network of pro-bono advising services.

In addition BTCKE enlisted young adult leaders in our work. Young adults were trained in community organizing material, centered on Marshall Ganz's community organizing practices. BTCKE young adults were grouped into teams and attached to one of our partner organizations. These teams recruit donors, volunteers, corporate sponsorship, clinical services and more for the Partner Organization to which they are attached.

BTCKE MISSION

Be the Change - Kenya works towards the eradication of child poverty by strengthening the capacity of local leaders and local organizations. We work alongside the local community to build relationships, mobilize local resources and create sustainable solutions for children living in poverty in Kenya.

BTCKE PROGRAM

Our work is based on collaboration and co-creation. We enter into a two year partnership with local anti-poverty organizations and connect them with the skills, knowledge and resources necessary to address the needs of their community. BTCKE's work addresses both the internal and external needs of organizations, creating the foundation for a stronger and viable community.

BTCKE VISION

BTCKE envisions that within two years there will be fewer children in poverty in Nairobi, plus a stronger network of local organizations working collaboratively to solve the problem for good. There will be local leaders with more capacity to lead their community, local funding fueling the community, more cross-community connections that will make government lobbying efforts easier, and trained young adults who understand the value of community work. The benefits extend beyond those that are quantifiable, including lives touched, stereotypes broken and connections built through generations and across cultures.
