Grassroot groups critical to the Covid-19 response

25 September 2020

In Kenya, staff of a grassroots community organisation move from house to house distributing face masks and food items, comforting distressed community members, and offering a myriad of other direct community services. The Aga Khan Foundation supports the efforts of grassroots organisations in committing their resources and rallying stakeholders in response to community priorities. With the increase in new Covid-19 cases in the country, these actors will continue to play an increasingly important role in nurturing community resilience. The AKDN views civil society as a force which binds public and private activity in a common purpose.
