About LBA

Love By Action’s purpose is to reflect compassion
to the marginalized living in poverty.

We do this by providing spiritual, educational and developmental services to support the creation of opportunities for economic empowerment.

We are a bridge to the community – we empower our partners to do their work so that they may have a larger impact in the community in which they serve.

Giving

100%

We adhere to excellence, transparency, integrity and honesty in all that we do. As responsible stewards, we maintain the health of our public trust. This is done by making sure donations are consistent with donor intent. In fact, 100% of the donations we receive are funneled to the project or initiative the donor intends.

All administrative expenses for the non-profit are raised through separate fundraising.

Love By Action is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

 

Where we are working

Kenya is in the ‘heart’ of the African continent. If you head south down the coast from the Horn of Africa, you come across the eastern shores of Kenya. Her northern border touches Ethiopia and Somalia; to the west her borders run along Uganda, and to the south Tanzania.

45,600,000+40%+100+

Kenya’s Population 45,600,000+

It is estimated that over 45 million people live in Kenya, with almost 10 percent of the population residing in the capital city of Nairobi. Unemployment rate exceed 40% and in cold numbers that is nearly 18 million people without jobs.

Unemployment 40%+

Given the unemployment rate, it should be no surprise that more than half of the population lives below the poverty line. In Nairobi, the majority of the 4 million people living there call their neighborhoods a slum or squatter settlements. These communities have little or inadequate access to safe water and sanitation.

Slums in Nairobi 100+

Most of these children live in 8′ X 10′ tin shacks or shanties. It’s quite common for 6 or more individuals to inhabit such a small place. There is no plumbing and no safe drinking water except for purchase at more than half a day’s wages. Illness is pervasive. HIV/AIDS ravages families, tearing them apart through disease hardship, even death.

The opportunity for an education of any kind is quite challenging. Without government funding for schools in the area, the reality is that there are very few schools available and most children are left to go out in search of food and/or to beg for money. From these desperate conditions, many of these children are molested, get caught up in drug and alcohol abuse, become involved in crime, etc.

Over half of Kenya’s population is under the age of 14 and the overall median age just shy of 19. LBA recognizes that if resources are invested into the potential of the youth, the community can begin to transform its conditions, social structures, and economy. It only takes a spark!
