POVERTY and HUNGER IN KENYA

WE TRAIN AND ENSURE that INDIVIDUALS BECOME SELF-SUFFICIENT IN FOOD AND GENERATE EXTRA INCOME
Poor and needy individuals will be equipped with the skills to either gain employment or become self-employed.

Chronic Hunger kills more human beings than those dying from TB, Malaria and AIDS combined. Yet the world does not attach the importance to it that it deserves. 1 billion individuals in this world suffer from chronic hunger!
We, at HACOT, have developed a system to identify those individuals who suffer from Chronic Hunger and provide customised training to them. HACOT training also contributes to building self-confidence and shifting an individual’s mindset from one of dependency on outside help to one of self-reliance.
HACOT works worldwide for the benefit of all human beings regardless of their gender, nationality, race, religion or colour. HACOT is not affiliated to any political or religious organisations.
Vision of HACOT: Poverty, illiteracy and ill health are three important factors that deprive the human race from its entitlement of enjoying a reasonable life.
When you sponsor individuals for HACOT Training (KShs 1,000/- per trainee), you will be provided with baseline personal profiles and then regular 3 monthly progress reports of the trainees. The trainees will attend the Centre for theory and practical demonstrations, obtain course materials, attend short exams, obtain certificates and receive incentive presents and will be provided support to become successful. We are keen to assist ladies, gents, youths and elderly who are unemployed or are employed but not earning enough to make ends meet and also those who own a small business that is not doing well.
HACOT VIEWS THOSE WHO GIVE THEIR MONEY AS DONORS AND AS INVESTORS & STAKEHOLDERS, WHO ARE PARTNERS OF PEOPLE LIVING IN CONDITIONS OF POVERTY AND HUNGER. The donors will know exactly which trainees they are sponsoring and they will be provided with the trainees’ details and regular progress reports.
