MPLM/ Give a Hand Canada had the opportunity to partner with SHOFCO a few years ago for a Maternity Health program in the community of Kibera in Kenya. Since day one, as President of MPLM/GAH I've been certainly impress by the passion, determination and engagement of Kennedy Odede and Jessica Posner Odede for their organisation. They certainly are representing a generation of people who encompasses the famous words of: "Be the Change you wish to see in the world". Our organisation has partnered again this year for a Water access project and we are working hard at getting a group of funders to participate in this project with us. We are certainly proud of participating at making a difference with SHOFCO in Kibera. We know you can!! :)

Shining Hope for Communities is a visionary organization. I'm so proud to support their high-impact approach and innovative model to combatting urban poverty and improving gender equality. Their leadership is inspiring, and the urgency of their work is clear. SHOFCO's holistic solution to the challenges of urban poverty is exactly the type of innovation the world needs more of-- they are not only investing in girls' leadership through world-class education, but they are supporting entire families: giving communities the resources they need in order to empower and affect true (and lasting) change. I'd give them the highest recommendation to anyone interested in truly world-changing action.
