About us

Born out of the lived experiences of a career educationist, Humanitarian Efforts for the Learning of Girlchild in Africa (HELGA) is a registered grassroots organization working to address the girl child education issues in the Maa community. Founded in 2012, our scope has since evolved to an umbrella organization for women and youth groups united against Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and Socio-Economic empowerment.
We envision a Kenya where the fundamental rights of the disadvantaged are protected and they are enabled to scale the highest heights of their social and education lives.

A Just and Equal Society

To foster a culture of inclusion and diversity, through education, advocacy and leadership for everyone to thrive and contribute to common good-

Overall goal
HELGA works to eliminate disparities in education, social and economic status for prosperity within the local community in Kajiado County.

• Grace Nanana Education & Rescue Centre (GNEC): Described as a ‘safe-haven’ and a ‘citadel of peace’ by at-risk girls in the center, GNEC is a boarding school that also acts as a rescue center for girls who are running away from GBV.
• Sponsorship Program: We source for sponsorship for children from vulnerable families for primary and secondary and tertiary levels.
• Digi Lab Program (DLP): We have leveraged the skills, energy, and passion of a resource that is readily available but overly underutilized-the out of school youth. This is a three-month program through which out of school youth are trained on digital literacy and entrepreneurship.
• Connect the Youth Program (CYP): Through the CYP we have trained youth groups and single mothers’ groups on entrepreneurship, life skills, positivity, personal and professional development, career choices, and micro-enterprise management. DLP and CYP are our channels for producing young and inspired community-focused change-makers.
• Women Empowerment Program (WEP): Through WEP, we train our women groups on alternative livelihoods, entrepreneurship, nutrition, and climate resilience. These skills are especially important in navigating the harsh physical and economic environment prevalent in pastoralist communities.
• Food Security Project (FSP) and Climate Resilience aimed at improving agricultural productivity and enhancing the livelihoods of local communities. The project focuses on sustainable farming practices, capacity building, and market access to ensure a steady supply of nutritious food. Build capacity of our community to adapt and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
