We care about empowering women economically and socially by advocating for sustainable development by promoting gender equality.
Often, we forget the pressure the widows in the community go through by independently raising their children. Answering to this call, Jaawabu brought this program to help cushion the African widows. We have intensified projects and activities with an aim to equip the women real time skills and knowledge on how best they can survive the tests of time.
We provide economic based trainings like soap and detergent making, bead work, tailoring, small scale vendors. We give basic finance literacy trainings so that the women can handle their finances sustainably.
Most times, we donate foodstuffs and kind gifts to the women because they come from drought-stricken areas.
According to a report by the United Nation Population Fund, between 2016 to 2017, Kenya recorded 378,397 teenage pregnancies cases. This information calls for community collaboration to reduce the cases. Jaawabu For Communities has been on the forefront to come up with projects to help the teenage mothers. Most importantly, we advocate for ‘return to school’ campaign so that most of them can finish their studies and live to fulfill their dreams.
We have been providing customized trainings to the African women, empowering them to be the best and stand counted in the community. We teach them on career development, sexual health and reproductive rights, gender based violence and financial literacy. Economically, we train soap and detergent making, bead work, tailoring, hairdressing, just to mention but a few.
School girls are our priority. We provide mentorship talks to numerous school-going girls. We teach them on hygiene, sexuality, moral standings, academics and their will power. Afterwards, we donate dignity packs, foodstuffs, academic materials, kind gifts, etc.
The boy-child has been forgotten for a very long time. We have concentrated on empowering their fellow ladies. The question arising is, who prepares the boy-child to handle empowered ladies? This program comes at a time when we need to mentor responsible, reliable and real-time young men.
Our major focus areas are in career development, education, talent development, drug and substance abuse, and crime.
