We gain PERSPECTIVE.
Life in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya has its challenges. In a country with approximately 1 doctor and 89 nurses per 100,000 people, those in the slums have very little access to healthcare, much less affordable healthcare. Despite the prevalence of infectious diseases, unsafe drinking water, non-existent sewage systems, food insecurity, and violence, the majority of Kenyans living in these conditions are resilient, resourceful, and gracious individuals. We are committed to actively pursuing insight and understanding about joys, sorrows, obstacles, and triumphs of our friends in Kenya.
We are PASSIONATE.
Imani Care International was built on faith and love - Faith that there are ways to improve and sustain health for those living in poverty, and a Love for our brothers and sisters around the world. We care about people and desire for them to have access to the resources needed to lead healthy lives.
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” - Ghandi
We seek PARTNERSHIP.
The best people to change the face of healthcare in Kenya = Kenyans! We have seen the dedication, courage, and skill of many health care providers, and seek to partner with those already on the ground working in the slums. We have no business in giving handouts or undermining current grassroots efforts. Instead, we establish relationships with Kenyan individuals and organizations, determine what their needs and hopes are, and determine ways to partner with them so that they have the resources, skills, and encouragement needed to continue and improve their work.
Not everyone can (or should) hop on a plane to a foreign country to volunteer, but ANYONE can play a role in caring for people around the world. Imani Care International desires to share the stories of those living in the slums and advocate for their health and wellbeing. We offer opportunities to learn, to give, and to participate in the life-changing activities occurring half-way around the world. We value all of our supporters, and appreciate their donations of time, skills, and money. For more information, check out GET INVOLVED and WAYS TO GIVE.
