Family Support

The Help we provide

Each family has their own unique past, with different available resources and struggles. Based on the situation of each individual family household, we find fitting solutions including:

  • Starting a business (micro-loan)
  • Helping to find a job
  • Enabling children to receive an education
  • Giving both social and financial advice
  • Risk support (health, social, financial)

How we find a new family

We work with different partners that assist us in identifying families in need. Other social organizations and village leaders refer cases to us that identify families suffering under their current conditions. In addition, the Family Department of the Social Welfare Office seeks out our help.

family visits

During the first visit to the family's home, we get an impression of the family and their problems and write down all the important facts and information. During follow-up visits, we continue to engage with the family members and understand them better. We develop individual solutions to change their current tumultuous situation into one with more stability and safety. 


"Family work is relationship work. Not only for the family itself, but also for us as a team. It means a lot to spend a time with families who are affected. It means having a huge heart, a listening ear and compassion. We need patience, empathy and sometimes a bit of strictness. Every small step towards a better future is worth it."

Vegetable Business

Veronica is a widow and mother of two teenagers.

We helped secure a stall at the local market, provided some of the materials and advised on how to run her very own profitable vegetable business! Veronica goes to the central market in town to buy the vegetables and sells them later at the local market near her home. Her daughter can now go to school to receive an education, and the family has enough money to pay for their basic needs.

Building resources

As the slideshow shows, we built a shower for a family in a village, using affordable, functional and local materials. In addition, we create safe living spaces by building bathrooms, toilets, roofs, or even rooms and houses, which you can see in the video above. Another example of the help Kipepeo will continue to provide is shown on our story page. We built a house for a family affected by albinism, as it is extremely dangerous for albinos to be in the sun for extended periods of time.


Due to the challenges of having no father and taking care of a disabled brother, Agata is not able to go to school nor is her mother able to work. We financially supported Agata's mother by paying for one month's rent for a room, where she can keep chickens, next to their home. Further, we provided the family with some materials and food for them. Agata's mother  is now able to raise chickens and sell them to restaurants to generate a sustainable income.
