Heart Cares NGO and Ubuntu Village have come a long way in the last two years. These NGOs started their collaboration in 2021 with two people who wanted to help the local communities and impact the communities around them. Heart Cares specifically focuses on providing food to impoverished children in Nakuru Town, Kenya, while Ubuntu Village creates funding through crowdfunding for this endeavor. From our humble beginnings as grassroots NGOs, we have grown to seek collaborations with other organizations on the ground in Kenya.
What is Heart Cares doing right?
Heart Cares is a Kenyan NGO that is doing a lot of good work in the country. They have an excellent outreach program that helps children in need and disabled people of any age. They are making a difference in many people’s lives, and they are doing it very well. The outreach program helps homeless children by providing breakfast. We hope to expand this program by establishing an outdoor enclosure to feed more children. The disabled population can also benefit from this because they are provided with everything they need to function more effectively through another NGO (Malaika Initiative for People with Disability). We have provided supplemental foods for this NGO from time to time.
What challenges does it face?
The world is ever-changing, and with that, so does the climate of Africa. Droughts have become more frequent, rainfall has been more unpredictable, and temperatures have risen. The effects of climate change are being felt by everyone, especially those already struggling to make ends meet. The staff at Heart Cares NGO and Ubuntu Village are doing everything they can to help those they serve, but they need more support. If you’re interested in supporting any of these three organizations financially or through volunteering your time, please contact Ubuntu Village for more information.
How can these challenges be overcome?
1. By partnering with other local organizations, NGOs can pool resources and have a greater impact on the community.
2. NGOs can also develop mentorship programs to engage with local youth and teach them about the importance of giving back to their community.
3. Fundraisers are another great way to get the community involved and raise awareness for these NGOs’ work.
4. International partnerships allow NGOs to access information and expertise they might not otherwise be able to access to become more effective at achieving their goals.
5. As an organization becomes more established, it is essential that they continuously monitor progress so they know what areas need improvement or increased focus.
What is Ubuntu Village doing right?
Ubuntu Village is a non-profit organization that provides grants and supplemental nourishment to homeless youth and the disabled in Nakuru Town. They have been operational for over six years and have helped countless individuals and families in Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. One of the things they are doing right is that they are constantly innovating and expanding their services. For example, they recently added a new program that provides microloans to women in rural areas so they can start their own businesses. This helps the women generate income and gives them a sense of empowerment.
What would our NGOs like to accomplish?
Heart Cares NGO would like to provide more support for homeless children in Kenya. We would also like to help the disabled become more independent. Lastly, we would like to provide food security for food insecure people. Our main goal is to provide assistance and care for those who need it the most.
Ubuntu Village would like to continue its work on resources for homeless children in Kenya. We would also like to expand our work with the disabled and those who are food insecure.
