Education

Education is a fundamental human right (as in article 26 of The universal declaration of human rights) and essential for the exercise of all other human rights. It promotes individual freedoms and empowerment, yet millions of children and adults remain deprived of educational opportunities, many as a result of poverty. Education is instrumental to a thriving society. It is therefore vital to educate and empower the next generation of agents of change. The result of this investment is profound; better job opportunities, raising income, improving health and reducing poverty among others.

Our work in Kisii county-Kenya Is working in partnership with the local community and teacher-parent association to support Nyankororo community school with ICT and laboratory infrastructure. We anticipate that through public cash donations, IT and laboratory equipment, HEIR will be able to provide the school with computers, books and bursaries to the very needy.

Health

HEIR International today supports small rural healthcare facilities in Kenya. We work hand in hand with both national governments and local communities to ensure basic healthcare is available and affordable for all residents of remote villages. We currently are working with two health facilities, Keumbu and Ibeno.Training and education are also central to our support of health services. We mobilize volunteer healthcare professional to train and mentor health providers, managers and community representatives to strengthen their abilities to manage, regulate and monitor their local health services.

Water and sanitation

Lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation traps people in poverty. Their health suffers and the prospect of developing economically remains far out of reach. Poor sanitation is one of the world’s biggest killers

Our water project in Kisii county- Kenya provides access to clean, safe and reliable water by digging wells, boreholes, tanks for rainy harvesting, spring protections and other water sources. As a result, now women and girls can save time once spent trekking long distances fetching water and invest it in education and other livelihood/economic activities. A sister project is under development in Machakos county where the need is even greater.

We are also helping poor communities to build Ventilated Improved Pit (VIP) latrines in school. They are equipped with ventilation pipes to get rid of the flies and smells. These are now very popular and very effective that local people have taken the initiative and built more in homesteads.
