Program Description

The Vibrant Village Kenya team has developed a dual-faceted model that implements programming in agriculture and in education.

In agriculture, our program provides loans for high quality seeds, fertilizer, and other agricultural inputs to improve food security and livelihoods for smallholder farmers. In addition, farmers receive training in sustainable farming practices to improve soil quality.

In education, our programming reaches all ages. Over 100 youth-volunteers tutor nearly 4,000 primary school students who are falling behind in math and reading, while adults have access to literacy and computer classes to help improve their skills and open doors to new opportunities.
