Los Angeles, CA & Nairobi, Kenya – EIN 271856081 livelyhoods.org
LivelyHoods was launched in 2011 as a U.S based non-profit organization and a Kenyan social enterprise. We fund an environmental and livelihoods program which trains and employs door-to-door sales agents distributing life-changing products in slum communities.
By offering training and job opportunities we provide unemployed Kenyan youth and women with an opportunity to work their way out of poverty. At the same time, this door-to door distribution network of youth and women from slum communities brings clean-energy products that improve the health and quality of life in these same communities. LivelyHoods products also prevent harmful emissions, reducing deforestation and climate change.
