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.
Communities in Rural areas are considered unreachable and very expensive to serve. We do things differently, innovating ways to reach our communities, cost effectively and giving quality care in all aspects of their lives.
The needs of our community is our first priority. We are open about our strengths and weaknesses with both the community we serve and our partners to ensure we work towards the same vision.
What are we here for, if not to help eachother? Our slogan that puts people – our community – at the heart of everything we do.
Our work can not be possible without our partners and supporters, we are committed to managing our resources and being accountable to our partners, our team, supporters and the community we serve
