Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has - Margret Mead
16.5 million Kenyans live in abject or extreme poverty. That is 1 in every 2 of us live in poverty. These are very grim statistics which after 46 years of independence is a testament to how we have not developed for the good of all our people. How wealth is only in the hands of a few while the rest wallow in misery. This has to change!
One In A Million is the fundraising arm of Driving Kenya Foundation. Poverty eradication in Kenya is our main objective. To pull Kenyans together we require a donation of at least Kshs100 per month from one million of us in the Kenya population to start alleviating this level of extreme poverty. We identified ten major problems which need to be addressed in order to achieve this change: Housing, water, crime & drugs, health, education & training, patriotism, unemployment, environment, empowerment and human rights.
Let us explore major areas of concern and reach out to help with our donations and join with other Kenyans who are ready to make that difference
However we are open to suggestions and will look at any recommended areas of urgent need. If you can help us identify them then we will start working towards the solutions needed.
We will regularly give you follow-up information on ongoing projects. And you can also check our blog for more detailed information on all the current and past projects being undertaken by the Driving Kenya Foundation and through contributions from the One In A Million website.
