    Free Healthcare Outreaches

    Jigger Eradication
    Medical Assistance

    A jigger is a tiny parasitic flea that burrows into people’s skin, especially feet and hands. The female lays eggs, and if left untreated, the parasite multiplies quickly, causing itching, making walking difficult, and leading to secondary infections or even amputation. OLCAP goes into the community and schools to treat children and adults suffering from painful jigger infestation. We also buy shoes for patients and offer hygiene training to help prevent re-infection.

    Will you help restore health to children suffering from jigger infestation?

    We arrange hospital visits to treat chronic wounds, elephantiasis, high blood pressure, and injuries, amongst other things. Once we have a diagnosis, we pay for treatment and follow-up that is required.

    • Will you provide a month’s worth of medical assistance?
    Food and Clothes Donation
    School Equipment and Facilities

    OLCAP donates food and clothes to the needy, especially orphans and widows in rural Kakamega. The families receive maize flour, sugar, rice, beans, tea leaves, salt, cooking oil, soap, matchboxes, potatoes, vegetables, and clothes. We also help families grow traditional greens to ensure a nutritious diet by offering seeds and training on starting kitchen gardens.

    Keeping Girls in School with Free Sanitary Pads

    Many girls in rural Kakamega cannot afford a dignified means to manage their menses. This forces many girls to miss an average of four school days per month when menstruating. OLCAP improves girls’ school attendance by providing disposable and reusable pads that last for five years.

    • Will you help keep girls in school by providing pads?

    A large population in rural Kakamega lives in poverty. High unemployment figures are the norm due to few job opportunities. OLCAP is working to stimulate economic development and contribute to improved and sustainable livelihoods

    We provide entrepreneurial training and advocate for resource-challenged people to start animal husbandry and cash crop farming for commercial purposes. In addition, OLCAP helps those impoverished to access capital to start small businesses and credit to help small businesses to scale.

    Our recent projects include the Pig Rearing and Women Greengrocers & Bakers projects implemented with partnership from iMPACT direct, AFAS, Stichting Overal, and individuals. They are helping families earn income to afford nutritious food, medical care, and decent shelters.

    • Will you help more men and women with training and capital?
