Tandum Kenya is a non-profit organization partnering with communities in drought-ravaged Kenya to end hunger. We look for projects that will create lasting and sustainable change in the lives of the people we work with. This is achieved through greenhouse development, sustainable business development, small project funding and working with communities and in particular women’s groups.
Tandum’s most recent projects have also included partnering with Days for Girls, providing health education and sanitary kits to young girls in need, as we believe all girls deserve dignity. Educating girls enables them to lift themselves out of poverty and their future families and communities benefit from this as well, possibly changing the cycle of poverty in one generation
Ruth Rowlands Co-founder and Director or Tandum says ”There are loads of statistics out there that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that investing in women’s lives impacts not only their children but also their communities. Studies show that women reinvest up to 90 percent of their incomes back into their families, compared to just 30-40 percent by men. Mothers provide better nutrition and health care and spend more on their children. Investing in women and girls creates long-term social and economic benefits for all individuals, their communities, and the world as a whole.”
