Kenya – In December, 2014 GPA awarded $5000 to ICF to train 75 physically disabled and educationally disadvantaged youth in a remote Nigerian village. No government programs or assistance are offered to the physically disadvantaged and many must beg for sustenance. Youth were trained in shoe making, bead making, clothes and mat weaving.
GPA awarded a second grant in the amount of $10,000 in June, 2015 to develop organizational sustainability and expand ICF’s programs to the community.
