  Safaricom Foundation has supported twenty-seven projects in the Ukambani region in the last few weeks. The projects have been funded through the Ndoto Zetu initiative at a cost of Kshs.  7 Million. Residents of Makueni, Kitui and Machakos counties who applied for their community dreams to be realized received support in education, health and economic empowerment.

“Ndoto Zetu initiative is keen on addressing the social and economic effects that affect the community, to ensure improved quality of life. It is part of our commitment to impact communities that we have focused on for the last twenty years,” said Joseph Ogutu, chairman, Safaricom Foundation.

A group of thirty farmers in Mbooni, Makueni County, who used to borrow a shared generator to pump water from the dam to their farms for irrigation, received a diesel water pump. The farmers will be connecting pipes directly from the generator at the dam site.

Ushirika wa Wajane group in Emali and Itaani group in Mbooni received tents and chairs while Inua Jamii group in Kibwezi received catering equipment. In the last two months, the foundation, through Ndoto Zetu, has supported over one hundred  projects directly impacting close to one hundred thousand  people.

Through the initiative, Safaricom Foundation requests individual Kenyans to share their dreams and aspirations that will positively impact their communities. During the first phase of the initiative last year, the foundation implemented over three hundred projects across forty  counties at Kshs.  30 million, reaching more than fifty thousand people.
