Busy Month: Two Businesses Launched and Walls Going Up!

March has been an exciting month at Learn for Life Kenya. Our young leaders at the Tumaini Huruma Alumni Association launched poultry and bakery enterprises, as well as hiring a manager to oversee both enterprises.  For all their time, energy, and tireless effort, Learn For Life Kenya says, “Well done and keep up the great work!
