Tag is operating Hoops for Kids, a basketball project for at-risk youth in various slums and rural communities in Nairobi and Kisumu, focused on empowering young people with life skills through sport. With the support of the Jochnick Foundation and Kids Connect Network, we are working to improve life skills training whilst expanding our reaching to thousands of children each week.
Tag and the Team Kenya, with the generous support of the Jochnick Foundation, are leveraging rainwater harvesting to improve education for girls in Kenya through better health and hygiene, upgraded nutrition and psychosocial support for girls and women. The project also involves managing a revolving loan fund and agricultural training for mothers of school-age girls to increase their prosperity, so that girls may gain an education.
Hoops for Kids Nairobi
In Nairobi, Kenya, Tag is establishing a basketball-based youth empowerment project, working with local basketball teams to instil vital life skills in at-risk and vulnerable youth. Based on the success of Hoops for Kids in Israel, Tag will be bringing this project to developing countries through the generous support of Kids Connect Network and the Jochnick Foundation.
Rice to the Top
We are delivering a rice growing initiative in Western Kenya, a highly fertile region with great agricultural potential that has been largely neglected. This project addresses the barriers farmers face to succeed at growing rice, such as access to water, farming inputs, finance, information, training and markets. Provision of irrigation support will enable two rice crops per year, dramatically increasing income from rice growing. Training of the farmers in proper fertilizer and pesticide use, along with new rice milling capacity, will facilitate profitable rice growing in the region. The project begins with an initial 300 farmers and aims to reach 5,000 as it expands.
