Naledi Initiative is a Non-Profit Organization registered in Kenya, serving the vulnerable communities at the grassroots level. Naledi is an African name of Lesotho origin and meaning "the brightest morning star”. Naledi Initiative comprises of technical working group, who are volunteer of medics and non-medics with generous heart and relentless passion to volunteer their experience, skills, knowledge and their resources to serve and change lives of vulnerable communities.

Our holistic approach to Community Empowerment Programs can be described through the three-legged African traditional stool. Without one of the legs, the stool will fall, and similarly, without the combination of Health, Peace and Capacity Strengthening (social-economic), communities will continue to suffer. 

When Naledi Initiative was founded in 2018, we focused on addressing one immediate barrier to girl's education in rural Kenya: lack of access to sanitary pads. We partnered with schools and communities in Kenya to supply girls with critical reproductive health education and reusable sanitary pads.

One of our key pillar is Community Healthcare program which focus in remote rural areas on cancer screening in partnership with government health facilities and communities. We embarked on cancer prevention awareness campaign and free cancer screening in rural areas after realizing high rates of cancer cases in our country, which is exerting tremendous physical; emotional and financial constraints on individuals, families, communities and health systems. We have witnessed high turnout of people for screening in our previous free  cancer screening camps which is a true evident of how needy  people are  for these services especially women in rural areas. The area of focus is Cervical, Breast and prostate screening, general health checkup and treatment on minor sickness.

The people who were diagnosed with cancer were referred to the health care system within their areas of residence and enrolled on the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) for two years. So far we have screened 5,087 in 4 free cancer screening and integrated medical camps in rural areas.
