We have a Youth Centre with a Community Library, Village ICT hub & a Youth Sexual Reproduction Clinic for youth aged 10 to 19 years.

45% of women and girls aged 15 to 49 have experienced physical violence and 14% have experienced sexual violence.

About Dandelion Africa

Support People in Extreme Need

Our promise that your giving is doing what it’s supposed to - changing lives.

In rural Kenya, 70% of women and children lack access to appropriate primary healthcare. On average, there are 500,000 maternal deaths in the country each year because of poor access to reproductive healthcare and infrastructure. And we know that 40% of rural Kenyans live in poverty compared to 28% in urban areas.

Dandelion Africa is determined to change the health and economic outcomes for women in rural Kenya. It is a matter of life and death that simply cannot wait.

“My capacity has been built, and I must therefore build the capacity of others.”

“I came into contact with Dandelion Africa after being introduced by my two friends, Margret and Emma, who are members of women groups that have been working with Dandelion for over 4 years. I had mobilized a group of 20 people, we called ourselves, Tegat Disabled Group, we wanted our members who were differently abled, to be transformed the way Margaret and Emmas group had been”. - Rose Nerea Achieng
