The PEP Foundation supports the Elshadai Welfare Association located in the Lugari District in West Kenya. The locally run welfare association is administered by Mr Solomon Havi. Mr Havi received a scholarship and training through JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency http://www.jica.go.jp/english/ ) in 1999 – 2000 where he met William and Lyn Melville-Rea.
Since 2001 The PEP Foundation has given financial support (over AU $ 20,000) to the Elshadai Welfare Association in order to help it :
3. create employment for the less fortunate through work in the posho mill and shop,
4. help local villagers in and around Eldoret Town in the Lugari District, buy necessary commodities, at their door step, at lower cost,
6. sponsor others for entrepreneurship training courses e.g in carpentry, driving and tailoring.
1. the installation of electricity in the office, posho mill and shop,
Note: Unfortunately, due to the high inflation rate in Kenya, which has sky rocketed in recent years, the association is struggling to meet its financial commitments and goals. Therefore any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated.Please contact us, or Solomon Havi direct at <email@example.com> to find out how you can help.
