About Qabale Duba Foundation
QDF is a community based organization that is empowering the pastoralists’ girls and women in the northern part of Kenya, Marsabit County. Our programs include; mentorship in rural village schools, donations of sanitary pads and panties (PAPA), Championing against harmful cultural practices like the FGM, early marriages and community literacy initiative. Since its inception in 2014, QBF has been able to keep in school more than 3000 girls through provision of sanitary pads and undergarments. However, there are still cases of girls undergoing FGM and cases of school dropout due to early/forced marriages.
Why We Are Fundraising
In 2017 we won McKinsey and Company’s Next Generation Women Leaders Award. With the grant we were able to build a classroom in Torbi village were our offices are. The classroom serves as a nursery school in the morning and an adult learning center in the afternoon for the uneducated young women. We have trained more than 20 women so far, and are still enrolling more. We believe that through adult literacy, women can become strong propagators against early/forced marriages and FGM. Our hope is to build a staff-room and two more classes to accommodate more women and children as we progress to realise the dream of becoming a life changing pastoralist school in Torbi village. The secret of getting ahead is getting started, we have started and dared to dream but we need support from well-wishers to be able to bridge the educational and literacy gap in North Horr sub county of Marsabit County. Please support our cause and make a difference in the lives of the children and women. Our Goal KSHS 800,000.donate Now
