Uasin Gishu County Youth Bunge Forum (UGCYB), a community-based organization in Kenya’s Uasin Gishu County, works to support youth employment opportunities and community engagement.

In 2020, as UGCYB sought to meet community needs during the pandemic, they called upon skills developed by participating in the Yetu Initiative’s bootcamp. The Yetu Initiative, a partnership between the Aga Khan Foundation and USAID, hosts bootcamps to build the capacity of local organizations to raise Kenyan resources for Kenyan needs. The bootcamps offer practical training, coaching, mentoring, and peer learning to help organizations successfully launch local fundraising campaigns.

The bootcamp helped UGCYB establish partnerships with corporations and the county government, which allowed them to distribute more than 20,000 masks in low-income areas of their county, including informal settlements. More Information

As COVID-19 cases spread in Tajikistan, people in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (GBAO) grew increasingly worried about their health, their finances, and their future. People with COVID-19 symptoms living in this remote and mountainous area had limited accessibility to health centers because of difficult terrain and poor roads.

The Aga Khan Foundation and USAID's Thrive Tajikistan project stepped in to assist by supporting a virtual helpline. The helpline connected community members to healthcare and provided mental health support to both community members and healthcare professionals. Thrive Tajikistan and the Aga Khan Health Services also launched a mobile health initiative with Tcell, one of the biggest telecommunications companies in Tajikistan, to reach 1,672 community members with text messages on COVID-19, nutrition, and sanitation. More Information

“I thank God that I was able to get my documents with the help of Heartland Alliance.” Said Anita, 24. “With those documents, I was able to register my youngest child as Dominican, and I was able to get insurance for both of us. I’m very happy because now I can afford doctors’ visits and medical tests because the insurance covers a big percentage.” More Information
