Empowering women and youth

“Educate a man and you educate an individual. Educate a woman and you educate a family.”   A. Cripps

Empowered women can transform their world and generations. "Women's empowerment collective, or self-help groups strengthen, an opportunity for women to come together as women, to build up group solidarity, to pool savings together and share risks, and fundamentally become more empowered themselves"- Sarah Handrisks. When women don't participate in their economies as fully as men, by owing and using bank accounts to access loans, to save money, to start their business, we are leaving incredible value off the table.

Studies and statistics from the scholars has confirmed that women are more likely to invest anything that they earn back into their families. When family planning programs thrive, women are more empowered, they have control of their lives for instance; if they want to get pregnant, how often and whom they want to get pregnant with (reproductive rights).

The statistics shows that:

63% of the world's 750 million, illiterate  adults are women.

It will take approximately 202 years before women and men have equal economic power.

214 million women can't access modern contraceptives in the developing world.

If women had equal access to resources on farms, they could reduce world's hunger by 17%.

Girls opportunity programs

“Little girls with dreams become women with vision” Unknown

I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world and pursue dreams.

Take action to support adolescent girls in rural schools and community to take charge of their lives.

Pregnancy and childbirth complications are the leading causes of death among girls aged 15-19 years globally, with low and middle-income countries. 20,000 girls under the age 18 give birth per day in developing countries this excludes; stillbirth, maternal mortality, and abortions in which adolescent pregnancies would be much higher. When a girl become pregnant, her life stand-still. Her education may end , and her job prospects diminish. She becomes more vulnerable to poverty and exclusion and her health often suffers. Adolescent pregnancy is generally not the result of a deliberate choice-these girls often have little to say over decisions affecting their lives. rather, early pregnancy is a consequence of little or no access to school, information or health care.

Naledi Initiative works in remote rural areas to address these issues through sexuality education, and sexual and reproductive health care to help girls avoid pregnancy. We advocate supporting girls who become pregnant to return to school and achieve their full potential. 

"When girls get opportunities they deserve, amazing things start happening: poverty goes down, economies grow, families get stronger, and babies born healthier."  

Be brother’s keeper programs

All men need a solid foundation of positive principals in their lifestyle.

Be Brother's Keeper Program support every boy and young man from diverse background to address persistent opportunity gaps facing boys and young men to ensure all youth achieve their full potential. BBK program focuses on creating safe and supportive community for boys and young men where they feel valued and have clear pathway to become a supportive system to their families and societies. The program aims to challenge certain gender stereotypes and behaviours which perpetuate and heighten violent behaviours towards women and girls by men and boys.

The boy child has been brought up to believe that he is not supposed to show weakness, thus most cultures believe that man keeps his issues to himself. BBK models them to become change agents in reducing sexual violence and abuse to women and girls, and see them as human beings who deserve respect as they do. We create safe space to be listened without judgement and with compassion and acceptance. Our calling is to have a male voice and support system for women by creating a space for them to learn how to heal their wounds and become heaters; as well as work with men to break the cycle of gender-based violence perpetuated by them.

"Their dreams matters as much as any other child's."

The focus is to improve healthy relationship between males and females, the possibilities of correcting some harmful stereotypes and promote mutual relationship between genders. We equip them to be responsible brothers, husbands, fathers and members of the society.

Health programs

Goal numbers under the SDGs seeks to ensure health and well-being for all, at every stage of life. Naledi Initiative work with its partners to provide medical camps to underserved communities once per year. Disease results into misery, pain, and poverty  for millions of people world-wide.

That's why prevention of disease is so important to us. We focus on health education, screening of cancer, check up of BP, family planning, healthy eating (nutrition) and the newly pandemic COVID-19.

Naledi Initiative has volunteers of different field of medicine volunteering the skills, resources and time annually to serve the underserved communities.

 Somewhere along the way, we must learn that there is nothing greater than to do something for others.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Whether you are an individual or having small business, the decision to partner with a charity may seem outlandish. After all, you may be focused on your wealth or growing margins, attracting talent and building your business. Certainly your wealth and sales are precious and revenue growth is critical, it seems counterintuitive to partner with a charity. But on top of supporting something you and your customers believe in, many small businesses find that partnering with a charity expands marketing opportunities, helps the company better connect with customers and creates important networking opportunities.


The joy of giving certainly has a lot to give back! Peace, happiness, smile - these are some of the instant returns of giving. Giving means helping in a way, which ultimately makes us recall the simplest meaning of humanity '“Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire - Thomas Keneally.

We believe that gifting is all about connecting with others and connection brings meaning and purpose to our lives. Receiving a gift that has meaning to us, makes us feel that we are important and that we belong. And so, our mission is to help people connect through meaningful giftware.

Contact us and start working with us. Become a part of our community.

Small gift and so much joy.
