Help Reach Africa
“Welcome to Help REACH Africa where we are saving and transforming lives of women, children, youth and their families. We believe in improving health and quality of life for everyone, and that no one should be left behind. For every woman: empowerment and access to good health services with good antenatal, delivery and postnatal care including family planning. For every child: good nutrition, good health, good education and a safe space to grow. Our young people must have good services in terms of sexual reproductive health, HIV services and health in totality, education in its fullness, career growth with job and business opportunities. As we focus on the girl child we believe that the boy child must not be left behind, we must empower them both. No one must be left behind.

How We Work
We have worked closely with Health Professionals in Siaya and other counties towards improvement of health status of the community. Efforts include working closely with elected leaders and the County Health Leadership to improve infrastructure, security, human resource, medicines, transport and capacity of health providers, working closely with the implementing partners in the region
We have met Governors, First Lady, County First Ladies, Donors and key stakeholders to chart the course of health in the respective counties.
We are perturbed by the statistics on teenage pregnancies and school drop outs and are working with the counties to bring interventions that will change the statistics.
We are equally disturbed by the high HIV incidence among the youth, and are working closely with others in this space to make a difference
