Alice Visionary Foundation Project (AVFP) is an International Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) and a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) in the United States with a vision to care for and support the disadvantaged and most vulnerable in Kenya. The organization’s mission is to improve the quality of life of the disadvantaged and most vulnerable through education, poverty reduction, gender equality and to promote peace and justice.
AVFP operates within Kisumu County and implements its activities in the urban and rural areas within the County with offices in Milimani, Kisumu and Amilo Village, in North East Kano Location in Muhoroni Sub-County. In the rural area, AVFP has been operational since 2005 and supports orphan and vulnerable children education, school feeding programs, capacity building of community members on group savings and loan, life skills training of girls and boys in empowerment clubs and Child Protection within Kabar East, Kabar Central and Sidho Sub-locations, in North East Kano Location in Muhoroni Sub-County.
In the urban area of Kisumu, AVFP is partnering with WomenStrong International and other like-minded organizations in implementing AVFP’s Urban Women Empowerment Program (UWEP) and girls’ empowerment programs in Manyatta A and B, two informal settlements within the city. The UWEP interventions focus on education, Economic Empowerment through Group Savings and Loan (GS&L), safety, health and urban environment. We also work with schools in this area and establish girls’ clubs to educate in many areas of need such as Life Skills, Human Rights, Safety, Health, Gender Based Violence and Positive Discipline in Everyday Parenting. These programs and services are designed to enable participating women and girls to realize, enjoy and capitalize on their full potential and maximize impact to their extended families.
