About Betty Adera Foundation
How many times do we hear or see people not achieving their full potentials and unsure of their futures? The Betty Adera Foundation acknowledges that there many barriers to achievement of life goals. For women and girls it can be; inability to complete their education or go to school in the first place, it can also be as a result of harmful socio-cultural practices, it can also be as a result of sexual and gender based violence, or even lacking the soft skills required to take on a leadership position. For young people the barriers can be lack of opportunities to make their talents work for them and others. Our interventions are contextually relevant and we place community engagement at the heart of everything we do. We believe that every life matters, and we are satisfied with small changes every day. That way, we believe that with time, we will contribute significantly to changing lives for the better.
