Safaricom Foundation, Kenya’s largest corporate foundation, has opened a call for expressions of interest (EOI) seeking partners to continue making sustainable community investments.
“We have recently concluded a process to develop a new strategy for 2023–2026 to make a significant contribution towards Kenya’s sustainable development in health, education, and economic empowerment while deepening engagement with communities,” the foundation said.
In light of this, EOI focuses on three areas:
One, improving access to and utilisation of reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, and adolescent health services; and screening and referrals for non-communicable diseases.
Two, improving access to quality, equitable, and inclusive skills and learning opportunities; and finally, improving the livelihoods of youth through enterprise development, agribusiness, and ecopreneurship.
“In order to achieve these objectives, the Foundation intends to implement a more proactive approach to designing and implementing three strategic programmes through a co-creation approach with stakeholders,” according to the foundation.
Since its inception in 2003, the foundation has contributed to the improvement of the health and well-being of Kenyans through investments in health, education, economic empowerment, water, environmental conservation, disaster relief, and arts and culture projects.
Interested individuals or organizations must submit bids at midnight on February 2, 2023.
