Social Enterprise Window

KKCF Social Enterprise Window (SEW) targets social enterprises currently present in Kakuma and those willing to set up businesses in Kakuma and Kalobeyei areas.

Social enterprises can ease pressure on the overstretched humanitarian system and compliment people’s willingness to pay for education, for example, by engaging Kenyan and regional low-cost private school providers. We will also target enterprise models which increase access to water and sanitation and quality medical and reproductive health solutions for refugees and host communities. We will address gender gaps by supporting social enterprises that can set up local manufacturing and distribution of sanitary towels and help increase their access and use particularly for teenage girls.
