Enterprise

= For a Flourishing Community.

In 2015 the community members informed us that they felt the community needed a mortuary that would help them bury their dead and provide the necessary support for grieving families. In response, we launched a mortuary business that is providing these services to the entire Kangundo district. Our
goal is to achieve sustainable profitability to offset our health clinic's operational costs.

Our Program Model

Kizimani’s program is to provide vocational training and then work with local entrepreneurs to provide seed funding for new business in three areas: carpentry, hair styling, and basic computer skills. 

 

Carpentry – There is a never ending need for carpentry services and products which pays enough to provide a living family wage. 

Hair Styling – In a small village community, there is an ongoing need for this service which enables both men and women to earn a decent living.

 

Basic Computer Skills – Computer skills are essential for any job, but people in impoverished communities can never afford their own computers, and many young people have never touched a keyboard. The Learning Center will provide access to basic computing skills including word processing and other programs.

Giving Opportunity

Kizimani needs $30,000 to complete the construction of the Learning Center and launch the first year of operational costs. We have a $10,000 matching challenge for this project so your gift will be doubled in value!

In 2024 Our Goals Include

Programs – Develop three well-defined vocational programs in carpentry, hair styling, and basic computer skills into jobs or profitable businesses. 

 

Water Business – Partner with Water4 to develop a water piping business.

Clinic Expansion – Build or partner with the new emerging hospital to provide additional revenue generating services.
