Kenya is ranked 8th on the extreme poverty list according to the ‘World Poverty Clock’ report. There is a significant population of the coastal province of Kenya who lack basic essentials such as food, water, healthcare, education and shelter.
The Shamakha Foundation aims to prioritise the basic needs of the poorest and under-privileged citizens of the coastal province of Kenya.
They focus on two locations that are regularly hit by drought and have very low rainfall and thus subsistence through farming has been very hard on the locals. These are located around 100 km to the East of Mombasa near Ndi village and 50 km North of Mombasa at Kiriwitu village.
