Real lasting community change is possible through local ethical leadership and strong healthy partnerships. We believe Manasprings brings some valuable benefits to partnership, including:

  • MAKING A DIFFERENCE... at the grassroots. Local leaders within local organisations are the greatest change makers within Kenya’s impoverished communities.

  • INFLUENCING GENDER EQUALITY... by supporting women community leaders, and giving voice to women and girls in Kenya.

  • DEVELOPING ETHICAL LEADERSHIP... by helping us to educate and champion leadership that influences communities for good.

  • SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY... that provides positive brand recognition and a ‘feel good factor’ that makes it all the more worthwhile.


Our partners provide a valuable contribution in supporting us through generous donations of money, time, expertise and good relationship.
