over 400 leaders directly

We also fund several orphanages in some of the poorest regions in the world.
Clara’s Story: An immigrant caring for 60 orphans
In Nairobi, Kenya, Clara was virtually alone in caring for 60 orphans, doing odd jobs for wealthier families and running a hand operated laundry business to earn enough income to provide for food, clothing, shelter, and education.
An immigrant from Tanzania and a former orphaned child herself, Clara somehow believed that she could care for these children in a country where over 7.9 million people (16% of the population) live in extreme poverty, making less than $1.90 per day.
In 2022, Clara’s self-made orphanage was voted “Role Model Orphanage” out of 300 orphanages in Nairobi. But even though she was doing a superior job, the orphanage could only afford one meal of porridge per day per child.
Clara was suffering stress migraines and ulcers, poor nutrition, and many sleep-deprived nights. Her government case worker was pressuring her to have sex, and she had recently rescued two infants that had been left in a trash pile. Her doctor was so concerned about burnout that they told her she needed to take a break from her work.
HOW WE HELPED
After listening to Clara’s situation, our partner organization identified several key areas that would ease her burden while maximizing the impact she could have on her orphans.
We provided direct financial support so that she could focus on leadership instead of doing laundry, and also helped her hire staff to care for the children. Then, we helped her start three businesses to provide sustainable revenue for the orphanage: a taxi, a cybercafe, and an office with a Kenyan version of Western Union. These businesses are operated by some of the young adults who used to be orphans in her care. We also paid for medical services for severely ill children in the orphanage, and paid for the preparation and filing of documents for her to become a citizen of Kenya so she can open bank accounts and utilize other important services.
The result: Clara is on her way to becoming financially independent, able to keep herself from extreme burnout, and is able to expand her work to care for even more orphaned children. The ultimate goal is to help her foster friendships with high-level government contacts to influence policy and programs to protect the 3 million orphaned and vulnerable children in Kenya.
Robert’s Story: Increasing Effectiveness through Leadership Development
In the U.S., we worked with the CEO of a $22M+ international nonprofit with nearly 600 staff and 14,000 co-workers around the globe. The CEO was an experienced leader who had previously served as Vice President at a well-known global humanitarian organization.
As an international leader who works with staff and partners across global time zones, Robert has a lot of demands on his time. And as any nonprofit leader can tell you, the scope and urgency of the problems faced on a daily basis can make self-care seem like a luxury.
When End Poverty Now met Robert, it was clear that he and the staff that reported to him were all burning the candle at both ends and were on the verge of exhaustion. As a result, creativity and innovation were lacking in the organization, and they were at risk of creating a toxic culture with a high turnover rate.
HOW WE HELPED
After discussing the needs of the organization, we agreed together that a culture shift was needed. End Poverty Now provided a grant that allowed Robert and his wife to go on a trial series of personal leadership retreats. The retreats proved so impactful that the board approved the institution of a corporate-wide program for all staff that granted them a one-week paid sabbatical.
The result: This massive organization is going to have a healthier way of operating, less turnover, and more innovative and effective work. For a long time such deep and wide impact seemed like a distant dream, thanks to generous donors, we were able to better the culture of a 100 year old organization.
