Women for Women in Africa (WFWIA) is an Australian not-for-profit charity driven by like-minded volunteers. Its aim is to give the children of Kibera an education as well as the women a skill to support themselves. WFWIA also help older family members learn skills such as reading and writing. Therefore, with these skills, parents can actively take a part in their children’s education. As a Director of WFWIA our MD, Richard Ruskin has been passionately involved over many years in ensuring a positive future for the people of Kibera.
The principal objective and purpose of WFWIA is: “To work for the relief of impoverished persons in Kenya, with a particular focus on children and women from the Kibera slum in Nairobi Kenya, who are in poverty, or are suffering distress, destitution, sickness or misfortune, regardless of age, sex, ethnic background, religion, political beliefs or marital status”.
Unlike many charities that only supply food and clothes, Women for Women in Africa goes above and beyond. Their aim is to help the people of Kibera to change their future for the better. WFWIA helps provide the people of Kibera with things we take for granted, “education, the ability to work, a support group of friends and family – simple rights that no human should ever have to be without.”
WFWIA has been supporting women and educating children in Kibera for 14 years. Since then, their continued efforts have provided the children of Kibera with bright futures beyond poverty. Furthermore, the work of WFWIA continues to make a real difference to the people of Kibera.
On Wednesday the 16th of May 2018, WFWIA will be hosting a charity dinner where all proceeds will go directly to the WFWIA Centre in Kibera to help in providing an education to the children of Kibera.
To WFWIA and the people of Kibera, your support truly means the world. We hope you join us in helping secure a brighter future for the children of Kibera.
