Programs: The primary programs of G.R.A.C.E. include (1) support and capacity building with a network of 105 grassroots organizations; (2) training and support to community health workers and families helping with orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) (3) educating a cohort of 200 OVC up to and including university, (4) training youth peer educators; and (5) development and training in sustainable agriculture, dairy goat rearing, marketable computer skills, home-based care and peer education for youth through our Research and Resource Centre.
In Kenya, the community reach and effectiveness of home based care workers, youth peer educators, trained traditional healers, birth attendants and others, suggest that our program is built to provide a ripple effect. G.R.A.C.E. provides the impetus for this ripple effect by relying on relationships within and across communities for success. These connections include mentoring relationships with motivation, self-esteem and efficiency are some of the byproducts. Increased knowledge, access to care, counselling and testing, safer childbirth etc. are among the outcomes.

Mission:
G.R.A.C.E.builds the capacity of community based organisations to implement self-determined, high impact and sustainable initiatives for better health and development.
