About Us

Dandelion Africa is a non-profit organization with over ten years of hands-on experience in community health, youth and entrepreneurial development. Situated in the heart of the Kenyan Rift Valley, its founder Wendo Aszed along with her small team have balanced a professional and tireless work ethic with a compassionate and welcoming outlook. The result is a grass-roots organisation that is able to truly make a difference and for those who need it the most.

Our Principles

Knowledge

Today, poverty is rooted more in the lack of one’s knowledge than a deprivation of material wealth. Starved of the relevant information, an individual can be left helpless when deciding upon their future education, health and political participation. For this reason, Dandelion Africa strives to provide the awareness and education that we all deserve, particularly that regarding HIV/AIDS and family planning.

Transparency

The nature of our work makes it essential for us to maintain open and honest communication with all of our stakeholders and donors alike. Accountability is an exercise we want to promote in and out of the organisation.

Women Empowerment

For us, gender equality is simple: the parity of rights, opportunity and participation, regardless of one’s gender. Presently, women in rural areas number among the most marginalized in Kenyan society. Achieving gender equality, however, would not only elevate this vulnerable group, but would also greatly benefit the well-being of society as a whole. For this reason, we have made the empowerment of women, both in law and practice, central to our mission.

Human Rights

All of our work at Dandelion Africa amounts, fundamentally, to either the implementation or the advocacy of Human Rights; this is a belief in the equality of all human beings, regardless of their race, gender, religion or culture.

OUR MISION

To stimulate awareness and encourage involvement while creating sustainable solutions to improve the health and economic livelihoods of women and youth in these marginalized areas.

OUR VISION

We envision a world where people in marginalized areas live healthy, safe and educated lives.
