Haron Karoke works in one of Uhuru Child's very first Kenyan social businesses, the Uhuru Shambas (Freedom Farms). When we met Haron he was resettling in an IDP camp of 1,000 people who had lived through tribal warfare. Haron and his family were living in a tent, earned only $0.30 per day, struggled to find food, and were walking almost three miles twice a day to retrieve water. Today, Haron is the manager of eleven adults who have full time employment in Uhuru Shamba social business.
Uhuru's social businesses give employment to families living in extreme poverty, and they pour all profits into Uhuru's secondary schools. This allows our secondary schools to be self-sustaining while still giving a top quality education to children living in extreme poverty.
