This funding, awarded in collaboration with several organizations, aims to expand the reach of Inua Dada’s existing programs and implement them across multiple counties.

By leveraging this collaboration, Janet Mbugua and her team aim to scale up their initiatives, informational campaigns, services, and collaborations.

The Inua Dada Foundation founder expressed her gratitude to her partners and leaders who have been instrumental in realizing this project.

Notable entities involved in this significant undertaking include USAID, the County Government of Kakamega, Busia County, Kakamega Water and Sanitation Company, the Office of the First Lady of Kakamega, the Pad Project, and others.
