Karimu fights poverty by trusting the poor to understand what they need.
Karimu recognizes that poverty can only be defeated by tackling the three biggest challenges facing the poor:
- Poor health and sanitation
- Meager income
- Lack of access to financial services
Karimu currently works within a relatively small area, but has made a huge impact there.
Karimu believes the villagers they work with understand their problems—and can recognize effective solutions—more accurately than any outsiders can.
