We are beyond proud to announce that Raising Futures Kenya won the Improving Impact award at the Charity Governance Awards, organised by The Clothworkers Company.


Improving Impact AwardWe were represented at the awards ceremony by our Chair, Andy King and trustees Olivia Geymond and Mike Doris (pictured).


The impact we are being recognised for, for the award, was the total transformation of our Seed of Hope vocational training and business skills project in 2020-21.


In 2020 the amazing team in Kenya, led by Mary Mwangi and Florence Olwenge, carried out a community needs assessment with over 300 representatives from the community to assess the new needs in response to COVID-19. In 2021, together with Kirsty Erridge, they analysed the results and, in response, we restructured the courses we offer and introduced new ones to meet the new and urgent needs. Tripling the number of young people we supported, without increasing our costs. This dramatically increases our impact in supporting young people to build a secure, self-reliant future, free from poverty.
