THE GOAL

THE BELIEF

THE APPROACH

Empower and equip every motivated Kiberan to be healthy, educated, and self-sufficient.

Slums are unsafe and dirty; the people who live there are not. Living in a slum does not define a person’s character or capacity for success.

Make life better today. Help them thrive tomorrow. Working collaboratively, we offer opportunity, not charity.

MEET JACKLINE KIMANI

CFK develops the WHOLE person: EDUCATED MINDS Academic, social, and emotional learning are necessary for personal development. From scholarships to sports teams to art activities, we provide places to play, learn, and grow.

HEALTHY BODIES You can’t thrive if you’re not alive. Healing the sick and promoting healthy lifestyles keep the whole community healthy.

SECURE FINANCES Financial self-sufficiency unlocks possibility. Trainings and coaching help current and future entrepreneurs build businesses that meet community needs and generate income.

A thriving part of CFK since 2007, she’s a phenomenal soccer player on the elite CFK Queens team, a Safe Space group leader for adolescent girls, and an aspiring engineer.


DEAR FRIENDS OF CFK: Every year as we gather stories and metrics to share with you in an Annual Report, we aim to demonstrate the incredible impact made possible by your contributions. Your support makes a difference. It changes lives. This year alone, you helped Carolina for Kibera directly serve more than 81,811 Kiberans of all ages. The numbers speak loudly: 34,455 treated at the Tabitha Clinic, 1,600 girls reached in the Daughters United program, 3,450 players registered in the annual Kibera Champions League soccer tournament, 106 school scholarships awarded– and that’s just some of our programs. Behind each number, there is a story and a person. One of those people is 19-year-old JACKLINE KIMANI (see photo on previous page). Jacky has been actively involved in CFK programming for six years and attributes her current and future success to the opportunities and experiences afforded by CFK. “My friends who are in CFK think differently. They don’t see obstacles as impossible challenges. They find a way to make things happen,” she commented. It’s a sentiment that we hear over and over again. The Kiberans with whom we work are focused, determined and creative. They get things done. And they don’t do it alone. The support of people like you helps sustain and expand CFK’s impact. As you read this report, we hope you’ll feel proud of the many successes we achieved together last year. Your support helps thousands of young people like Jacky benefit from CFK’s programs. Thank you for believing in their future. Tuko Pamoja (We are together),

is one of the greatest experiences of a lifetime because you learn a lot. For me, I’ve been trying to understand why I have to live like this, but I believe there are reasons to it, so that one day I can develop myself and develop other people so we can all see a brighter future and make different leaders. I want to be a role model for others here because I feel like I can show them that nothing is impossible if you’re focused, if you have a dream, and if you’re determined.”

SPORTS ASSOCIATION

Carolina for Kibera’s flagship program uses sports to teach healthy life choices and promote peace across gender and ethnic divides in Kibera. Thousands of boys and girls form teams to participate in CFK’s annual, year-long SOCCER TOURNAMENT in which ethnic diversity is a paramount requirement. To play in the soccer tournament, each team must include youth of different ethnic groups. The CFK Sprinters, our

JUMP ROPE TEAM, is also co-ed and ethnically diverse. Players learn teamwork and develop strong friendships across ethnic lines not only through sport, but also through team-based community service and learning activities, including trash clean-ups and workshops on reproductive health issues. Through sports, players learn about trust and teamwork, all while having fun.

SOCIAL

DAUGHTERS UNITED Established in 2002, Daughters United (Binti Pamoja) focuses on providing adolescent girls a physically and emotionally safe place to explore the issues that are prevalent in their lives. These range from reproductive health, education access, and financial literacy to violence against women, sexual abuse, prostitution, HIV/AIDS, poverty, and female genital mutilation. In peer-led groups called “Safe Spaces,” girls use photography, drama, writing, and group discussion to delve into these issues, build self-esteem and learn leadership skills.

WHAT’S NEXT? We’re building a new, 3-story center for the Daughters United program! As a dedicated center for adolescent girls, it will offer expanded meeting space for girls and house a conference center. It will have a fully-equipped kitchen for girls’ catering businesses, office space for Binti staff, private counseling space, training rooms and a dedicated area for empowerment through arts activities.

TABITHA CLINIC CFK’s Tabitha Medical Clinic has a straightforward mission: to provide high-quality, low-cost medical care to sick people in Kibera. Named in honor of co-founder Tabitha Atieno Festo and run in partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the clinic provides outpatient care for a wide variety of health issues. Many patients seek treatment for fever, diarrhea or respiratory illnesses. Others come seeking emergency care for cuts, burns, and breaks. We turn no one away. For Kiberans, convenience is just as important as quality care. For this reason, our clinic provides many non-treatment services all within the same building, including vaccinations, family planning, HIV/AIDS testing & counseling, cervical & breast cancer screenings, prenatal care, and digital x-rays. With clinicians and nurses dedicated to serving those in need of medical care and a wide array of and help save countless lives each year.

PREVENTION THROUGH EDUCATION + OUTREACH

HEALTH

Misinformation and misunderstanding about common health issues are incredibly widespread in Kibera. Reaching beyond the clinic walls, CFK’s COMMUNITY

WELLNESS initiative works with a team of 150 local health workers to promote accurate health information and influence good health behavior. The program’s volunteers, known as Community Health Workers (CHWs), bring health information to more than 10,000 homes, so Kiberans may feel empowered to seek treatment. The program also uses several dozen volunteer youth educators to reach adolescents and teens. Health education topics are quite diverse, ranging from family planning and contraception to hand-washing and safe water storage. CHWs and youth educators provide life-saving information about the importance of things like immunizations, nutrition, HIV testing, and cervical cancer screenings. Community members interested in being tested or screened are referred to the clinic for service. By breaking down stigma around sexual health and educating community members about healthy living, we are empowering Kiberans to be healthier.

improved community in Kibera.”


TRASH IS CASH Built on the belief that even trash can be turned into income, Trash is Cash (Taka ni Pato) works with local businesses to convert cast-off and recyclable materials in Kibera into steady revenue streams. Businesses using “waste” as the primary input include trash collection services, plastic recycling, bone handicrafts, and recycled alternative fuel briquettes. CFK supports these groups with business counseling and workshops and links them to new markets.

MORE THAN TRASH: There are lots of types of businesses in Kibera. Because we want to see all Kiberans achieve financial independence, we’ve expanded beyond waste-focused businesses to help more Kiberan businesses thrive. CHICKEN FARMING GOODS TRANSPORT SERVICE

FINANCIALS

Thank you to the

We continuously strive to be careful stewards of your gifts and operate by the same principle we teach in Kibera - to thrive, you have to be physically and financially healthy. This commitment to financial stability, transparency, and accountability was validated by the renewal of our rating as a 4-star charity by Charity Navigator. This year marked an important phase in CFK’s development. To build a stronger foundation and support future growth, CFK hired staff in Kenya and the US, at all levels. More people means new skills to expand and evaluate programs, develop new initiatives, increase funding, and tell stories about the good work being done. Planning for long-term stability, we continued to strengthen the endowments in both Kenya and the US, helping ensure CFK can continue to fund high-impact initiatives designed and run by local community members for years to come.
