Lahash International in Kenya

LAHASH run 2 separate projects in Eldoret and in the Kibera slum area of Nairobi. They use a great deal of internet media to tell their story, pictures & videos. AVIF is hoping to partner and assist their work.
In Eldoret they are running a pilot program to assist prostitutes to leave the industry and seek emotional, spiritual, physical & financial stability through education and micro-loans. Lahash are also assisting HIV affected families, providing school uniforms, clothing, food, rent assistance, and counselling to overcome the stigma and horrendous myths that still exist.

In Kibera they help Margaret Wanjiku Nyabuto with 50 kindergarten / primary children. Here Margaret tells you herself the work that is being done.
