The Facilities

Offices

LPK is currently running out of an office space right in the middle of the action of Ngong Town.  This space houses the offices of communications, social work, administration and accounting.
Additionally the WEEP classroom, kitchen facility and support groups are run in the same building.  This location enables the women to remain close to their community and family while in the programming provided.

Our Daycare

The daycare is where the children of the women in our program (as well as other children from the slum) spend their days, learning in one of the 3 classrooms, reading/coloring in the library, or playing in the playground area. We are very proud of our new classroom where the older children are able to receive an improved quality of learning.

Our Farm

We also have a small farm approximately 15minutes walking distance from the office.  The Farm is used both for growing and harvesting vegetables, as well as being home to goats, rabbits, and chickens.
Most recently we have added our first Fish farm which is home to almost 1500 Tilapia and will provide additional income for the programming and nutrition for the women in the project.
The farm provides both an opportunity for additional skills for the women and also as funding for the programs and projects to support the participants.

Our Gift shop

The main offices also house a small gift shop which displays the wares made by the WEEP participants both current and graduated.  Items available include jewelry, beadwork, bags, skirts, dresses, aprons and greeting cards.
This shop is a place of pride for the women to show off their incredible abilities they have learned and honed in their classes, and also having their hard work displayed and purchased is vital to encouraging their continued growth.
