“We have been criss-crossing country meeting Kenyans who live below the poverty line.

The Foundation has however not injected any monetary support to these groups but their partnership with BDF will see the groups with outstanding projects benefit from financial boosts from the donor.

Deputy CEO Dr. Priscilla Gatiti warned Kenyans not to give any money to officials as the NGO doesn’t charge any fee.

“EA-SSASPF doesn’t charge it’s members, we are giving moral support, ideas and hope to these group members, now that we have partnered with BDF, we are expecting to offer financial support and we will inject some to the already started projects,” she said.

Some of the beneficiaries told Latest News Kenya that they have running projects such as chicken rearing, bee keeping, and dairy farming.

“I started with five Chickens but since I joined the organisation I have over 600 chicken, they gave me lessons,” Joseph Gatimu said.

Alice Murigu applauded EA-SSASPF for not only educating the members but also giving them ideas on profitable projects.

On the other hand, Reverend Martin’s Enoh Agbor, a representative of BDF insisted that the foundation is not so much on material help but spiritual.

“We give ideas first, then hope, yes, financial support will follow,” he said.
