Participant in relevant networks

POVERTY RELIEF AND AID is a non-profit making organization which raises its funds from general public, donors, institutions, trusts, NGOS Foundations, Charities, private sector and individuals. At the moment the projects of our organization are supported by World Mercy Fund, AMI Foundation, KenChic Company and some individuals. The continuous process of writing and submitting proposals is a very time consuming operation, diverting human and financial resources away from the organization’s main work. We have many projects for the poor, which need funds to be implemented. Therefore, we still look forward for donors and partners to support our activities and there is an urgent need for more easily issued flexible grants with longer-term nature such as core funding.
