Transforming Communities


Manasprings salutes the many Manawomen in Kenya who embrace the true meaning of ‘mana’
– simply, how you care for others.

To date, Manasprings has reached out to hundreds of women community leaders representing their own not-for-profit, local organisations that impact the lives of thousands of children, youth, women, men, and families living in poverty throughout Kenya.

We’ve learnt that Manawomen have more than one remarkable trait in common – however one characteristic that stands strong is that of COURAGE – courage to do the right thing when everyone else turns away, courage to try again tomorrow, courage to test the limits, and courage to make a difference.
