LivelyHoods is a non-profit organization that works to create jobs for women and youth in slums throughout Kenya, mainly in the clean-energy sales field. They recruit youth and women, provide them with training and environmentally friendly products, and give them commission for each product sold. They use micro-consignment rather than the traditional microloans in order to alleviate poverty throughout the country. They have created thousands of jobs and have sold tens of thousands of clean energy products.
Mission Statement: LivelyHoods creates job opportunities for youth and women in their own communities, transforming marginalized populations into clean energy distributors.
Family Discretionary Grant. The Skees family loves the creative and innovative ways we are learning to alleviate poverty. LivelyHoods is taking microfinance in a new direction, and we wanted to help! We began working with them in 2015 and look forward to our partnership.
