KEA COHORT - 2021
Dig Deep unlocks opportunity for Kenya’s poorest residents, county by county, by ensuring everyone has clean water, safe toilets, and good hygiene - forever. By reducing the time lost to water collection and preventable disease we remove barriers to learning and earning, allowing people to lift themselves out of poverty.
I hope my involvement in the Growth Project allows me to gain the knowledge, skills and insight I need to continue driving the charity’s growth.
At Rites for Girls CIC, Girls Journeying Together groups provide monthly support to preteen girls as they practice being true to themselves, learn about puberty, share their hopes and fears, and help each other into their teens. The Growth Project will help me become a better leader and enabler, scaling sustainably
I founded MOVE charity in 2016 after being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 24 to provide others with something I never got myself: Access to free, professional advice and support on how to literally Move Against Cancer.
I’m honoured to be part of the Growth Project. I hope to develop my leadership skills, learn from others and help MOVE Charity to maximise its impact, become sustainable and thrive in the years to come.
At Haller, we empower Kenyan communities to live extraordinarily resourcefully from their land. By promoting a model for development that is both sustainable and environmentally sound, we unleash the potential of people and nature to create thriving communities and ecosystems.
I hope that with The Growth Project, I will be able to take The Haller Foundation to new heights, and successfully lead the team towards a united goal.
WeCare supports people who have experienced or at risk of homelessness. Within our services, we can also accommodate those who also experience a range of complex needs and require support to enable them to sustain their accommodation. This service operates on the basis that with the right support, everyone can play a positive part in their communities and live fulfilling lives.
Mosaik Education helps refugees to reach university. The organisation grew out of my work in Jordan on the Syria refugee crisis. There I met young refugees living in cities and camps with the motivation and talent to enter university, but without the resources or programmes to make it a reality for themselves and their peers. And their experience in Jordan was not painfully common story around the world: currently, only 3% of the world’s refugees are able reach university.
The Lotus Flower is a women and girls charity that supports women and girls impacted by conflict and displacement. Currently working in Kurdistan, Northern Iraq with survivors of the ISIS conflict. The charity gives vulnerable women and girls an opportunity to heal from their trauma and rebuild their lives.
We provide safe social spaces inside refugee camps where we implement projects aligned to Sustainable Development Goals.
Remember My Baby is a UK based registered charity which offers a free gift of baby remembrance photography to all parents experiencing the loss of their baby before, during or shortly after birth.
I am passionate about the power of documenting life through imagery and what could be more important than creating a lifetime of memories for a family whose baby has died or will die within hours or weeks of being born.
At the Renaissance Foundation, we inspire young people living with significant life challenges in London. We work in partnership with the major London hospitals and schools across boroughs to identify hard to reach Young Carers and patients who would otherwise slip through support structures. We do this through skills development, inspirational experiences and a peer support community.
Refugee community Kitchen was set up in response to the refugee crisis of 2015 opening up kitchens in Calais and Dunkirk to serve the refugees hot nutritious meals. The charity is still serving around a thousand refugees a day and has served over 3 million meals there.
In 2016 we went on to utilise our skills in the UK with volunteers that wanted to help but couldn’t get to France and the ever-growing homeless population we set up our first outreach in Camd
For many homeless people, their animal can be their only relationship, this provides a source of unconditional love. Homeless people care deeply about the health and welfare of their pets. Yet they find it impossible to access veterinary care or are separated from their pets when accessing temporary housing. We ensure that their bond is never broken. We provide free accessible vet care and kennel provision to homeless people across the UK.
Family Lives is a volunteer led organisations that supports low income and vulnerable families through a national helpline, digital services and face to face delivery.
I devote my passion and energy to Family Lives as I know the power of being listened too and the value of an intervention that stops a spiralling out of control .
