Makena Malaika Project

Impacting Local Communities:
Development with the Makena Malaika Project

The MAKENA Malaika Project is a series of community based sustainable projects designed to foster and support local communities with food, agriculture, fresh water supply, sustainable businesses, and overall community development. The MAKENA Malaika Project is committed to create a positive and lasting impact on underserved communities by supporting a range of sustainable development projects. Through collaboration with local stakeholders, NGOs, and grassroots organizations, we aim to address pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges while fostering community resilience and self-sufficiency.

Key Components

Holistic Approach

We believe in taking a holistic approach to community development, addressing interconnected issues such as poverty alleviation, access to education, healthcare, clean water, and environmental conservation.

Project Diversity

Our fund supports a diverse range of projects tailored to the specific needs of each community. This includes initiatives such as renewable energy installations, organic farming cooperatives, vocational training programs, microfinance initiatives, and women’s empowerment projects.

Community Engagement

Central to our approach is the active involvement of community members in the design, implementation, and evaluation of projects. By empowering local leaders and fostering ownership, we ensure the sustainability and long-term impact of our interventions.

Transparency & Accountability

We are committed to transparency and accountability in all our activities. Donors can track the progress of funded projects through regular updates, impact reports, and financial statements, ensuring their contributions are making a tangible difference on the ground.

Sustainable Funding Model

Our goal is to establish a sustainable funding model that goes beyond one-time donations. Through innovative strategies such as social enterprise development, impact investing, and partnerships with corporate sponsors, we aim to create a steady stream of revenue to support ongoing community development efforts.

Scalability & Replicability

As we achieve success in our pilot communities, we seek to scale up our impact by replicating proven models in other regions facing similar challenges. By sharing best practices and lessons learned, we aim to create a ripple effect that reaches far beyond our initial target areas.


By supporting the MAKENA Malaika Project, donors have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of marginalized communities in Kenya. Together, we can build a more just, equitable, and sustainable future for all.

Join us in empowering communities and transforming lives. Together, we can create lasting change that reverberates for generations to come.
