Lipiri Community

One of the root causes of poverty in Lipiri is illiteracy which has led to girls not being encouraged or supported to attend school. We have been partnering with them since 2009.

We are working to improve access to education for girls by ensuring that they have adequate toilet facilities, sanitary pads, uniforms, and textbooks available. We are also supporting parents to increase their income, so they can support their children going to school and provide an adequate nutritional diet for their children all year round. 

We have already achieved great things in the Lipiri community by building clean water sources and teaching the community to manage them. 

We’re working with the people of Lipiri to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Lipiri for nine years now and are starting to tackle the harder problems such as changing mindsets about the right to education for girls or early marriage. We’re focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for Lipiri community. 

After these projects are complete we ensure all our work is sustainable, and that the community is set up to identify and respond to needs as they arise. We plan for our partnership to continue until 2024 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
