Our Programs


Water Backpacks

Through the successful distribution of 50,000 award-winning water backpacks, Partners for Care is working to provide a sustainable and innovative method for safe water transport and storage throughout Kenya.  Every water backpack helps to eradicate preventable, waterborne diseases and improve the overall health of individuals and their communities. The Partners for Care Team has reached over 150,000 lives by distributing packs across 15 counties within Kenya. Our goal is to put a water backpack in every classroom in Kenya.

Bed Nets

Every year, malaria takes the lives of thousands of innocent children. A simple bed net protects a child from malaria while they sleep. Partners for Care is working to eradicate malaria by distributing bed nets to thousands of people throughout Kenya. To date, 9500 bed nets have been distributed, and PFC staff teach proper usage and maintenance to further increase the life of these bed nets for the families they serve.

Partners for Care serves the most marginalized people, typically those who live on less than a dollar a day.  Because they cannot afford to visit a doctor, we provide healthcare services through our partnership with Marurui Health Clinic and PFC’s Circle of Health program. The program provides a family access to our health clinician and medications for a fee of .50 per month. In addition to health screenings and medications, the clinic also provides immunizations for children to protect them against deadly diseases and keep the poorest of the poor healthy.

Sewing Schools

Learning to sew helps women rise out of poverty and become self-supporting by giving them a way to earn an income to feed their families and educate their children. Partners for Care has opened 12 sewing schools in Kenya with hundreds of students. 90% of graduates are self-employed, earning a living by selling their hand sewn products. One graduate even used her sewing skills to make masks to help protect people from the spread of the virus during the current pandemic.
