Through a partnership with Kubamba Trust, phase two of the JJI, which runs from September – December 2020, has created the Jenga Jirani Charity Festival (JJCF) – a series of monthly online festivals aimed at fundraising, and providing an educative, and entertaining platform. The JJCF platform focuses on bringing all Kenyans together towards one mission of supporting vulnerable Kenyan communities, reduce inequalities, and build resilience of households in crises and shocks caused by COVID-19 through entertainment with a noble cause.
Support jobless youth and women without formal education to restart their lives through enterprise development. The provision of grants to SMEs will enable youth and women to initiate sustainable micro-enterprise / businesses and offer a support system to the informal economies.
Sustain the lives of the most vulnerable families, i.e., the elderly, persons with severe disability, and extremely ill people from the informal economies during the COVID-19 period by providing dry food, sanitary products, and WASH facilities. The Food distribution initiative supports the most vulnerable households struggling with food insecurity because of high food prices and scarcity of food resulting from the loss of income. Supply of food to vulnerable families will cushion them during the pandemic from the vagaries of food insecurity. Installation of handwashing stations and the provision of soaps will enable more people to practice handwashing. Good hygiene will help reduce the spread of the virus among vulnerable youth, women, and children
Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) assistance to underprivileged teenage girls, teenage pregnancy counter-interventions & gender desks maintenance
Create awareness on the prevention and control of COVID-19 and build community resilience towards coping with the effects of the Coronavirus.
The JJCF solely relies on individuals, businesses, governments, and non-governmental organizations to help support our programs and services to substantially expand the impact and support the poor and needy households in Kenya. The JJCF seeks to fundraise for both material and financial support to help families adjust and cope with the effects of the Coronavirus. Such intervention is crucial for cushioning vulnerable families from the impact of the Coronavirus, thereby leading to the flattening of the COVID- 19 curve. The JJCF desire is to directly support a minimum of 25,000 households for a period of one year.
