EACH began after Founder, Melanie Pessin returned from volunteering at Upendo School and Children’s Home in Kenya. Since then we have added an additional project site in Uganda. We are looking forward to adding more project sites after these organizations achieve self-sustainability in the coming years.
Upendo, located in Murang’a, Kenya is an orphanage for 40 girls and a co-ed primary school for 60 local children. Upendo is 4 years away from achieving self-sustainability, which will allow them to increase their scope to serve as a primary and secondary school for local children.
Good Hope Initiative, located in Mubende, Uganda provides shelter and support for the 150 orphaned children in the village and is working toward providing access to health care and schooling to all village members.
EACH will be gift wrapping at Barnes and Noble (150 E 86th St, New York, NY) for the holiday season. Stop by any Monday or select Fridays from 5:30PM-10PM beginning November 25th!
Over the past 6 years EACH has provided capacity building funding that has paid for many revenue generating projects including the construction of a grain mill, farm expansion and classroom building.
