1 in 42 women in Kenya die during childbirth. In Mogotio and Rongai SubCounty where Dandelion works, 6 out of every 10 women in deliver their babies at home, and this is risky for the mother and baby.  The cultural setback and lack of facilities contribute to the number of maternal and infant mortality in the area. Primary healthcare is the greatest need of women and girls in our community.  In rural Kenya, 70% of women and children lack access to appropriate primary healthcare.

Dandelion Africa is a Kenyan led NGO focused on women’s health and economic empowerment. We work in the rural areas of Nakuru, Baringo, Kajiado and Narok counties in Kenya.
