Mombasa Relief Initiative's mission is to serve the children of Mombasa, Kenya through three key initiatives: (1) Health Care (2) Education and (3) Economic Empowerment.
These initiatives are addressed in several programs such as:
- The Sponsorship program provides school fees for 25 Kenyan students.
- Our Nutrition program provides lunches at two locations (Pwani & Kilifi) and feeds over 300 children.
- Our Food First program works with Kenyan farmers to increase their yield with a long-term goal of them assisting to feed children in the schools we support
- The Teacher's program provides annual salaries of two teachers at Mnazi Moja primary school.
Our Health programs focus on education and intervention to address basic and critical health needs. We provide feminine products, HIV/Aids workshops to educate citizens and provide protective contraceptives. We also provide mosquito nets to families that significantly reduce the spread of threatening diseases such as malaria.
Programs such as our education initiatives have provided the tools necessary for students to be successful, such as text books, desks, electricity and basic supplies.
