Description: 

Volunteers are needed to help drive people to the go-fund-me page for Future African Leaders Project (FALP). FALP is committed to supporting Kenyan children and youth who cannot afford school fees because of poverty and poor social policies that impact their lives. There are fifteen participants at different levels in their education, ranging from primary school to college. Through FALP, Children from low-income families and orphans are getting an education; families with HIV survive and have been provided with their basic needs; abused women and girls are gaining support. Some of the participants of FALP are living with HIV. FALP works to facilitate their full, healthy, and productive lives. During the COVID-19, schools in Kenya are closed until January 2021. FALP is feeding its participants and 35 families unable to feed themselves due to the COVID-19 economic downturn, and keeping them safe from the coronavirus. FALP partners with the Center for Health Ethics and Social Policy, a fully tax-deductible 501(c)3 organization.
