Founded in Dublin in 1982, Aidlink is an Irish Charity (CHY 9078) working to improve the lives of people living in poverty in Africa. We do this by strengthening local organisations, enabling healthy and fulfilling lives and developing sustainable communities with the capacity, skills and knowledge to achieve change for themselves. Working in Kenya, Uganda and Ghana, our projects include building wells, constructing primary school sanitation facilities and training farmers and communities, all with a special focus on the rights and empowerment of women and girls. www.aidlink.ie
Where does the money go?
Aidlink’s primary school programme in Kenya is a gendered intervention which aims to make school a happier, healthier and safer place for all children, but most especially for girls. Working with our local partner The Girl Child Network, we work to achieve “girl-friendly” primary schools, which entails implementing better sanitation facilities, distributing sanitary pads, establishing and training child rights clubs and women’s groups, and providing gender sensitive training to parents and staff.
