KENYA TRAUMA AND INJURY PROGRAM

Designing a framework for improving health outcomes for victims of trauma and injury isn't easy. Cultivating an international network of non-profit, academic, and government partners helps. KTIP is the result.

FROM OPEN ROAD TO OPERATING ROOM

Vulnerable peoples facing hard economic realities must innovative daily as a way of life. That's why our programming is meant for high-potential individuals from vulnerable backgrounds like urban slums, conflict, areas, and refugee camps.

We believe that these individuals will be the most incentivized to create wildly impactful social ventures that will reinvigorate their local communities with economic prosperity, food security, access to healthcare, and clean energy solutions.

 

However, these underrepresented innovators are often poorly understood by most external bodies, treated with skepticism, financially under-resourced, and lack access to programs for incubating and growing their innovations.  

EQUIPPING LOCAL TALENT WITH A FULL TOOLKIT

Located on the southwestern outskirts of the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, Kibera is a sprawling informal settlement and the first site of implementation for our EMR solution.
