Shining Hope for Communities

Building urban promise from urban poverty in Nairobi’s slums and beyond.


Leadership and education to empower communities

With a focus on girls’ education and leadership, Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO) aims to provide services that disrupt survival mode and improve futures.



Meeting a growing need

By 2045, the world’s urban population is projected to reach six billion. Emerging economies, like Kenya, will have to endure this rapid growth, but without the capacity to handle these challenges, urban poverty will explode.

SHOFCO works to address key issues like healthcare, affordable clean water, and other human rights by providing education and critical services, operating community advocacy platforms, and building female leadership to create lasting change.

The organization focuses on helping individuals come together and advocate for tangible results to build a community that they want to see. In addition, prioritizing education for girls helps provide more students the tools they need to help make positive change.
