Join the Collective

What Is The Collective?

Sustaining the work of the Kekeli women takes a village, as they say. It takes a community and it takes a collective. You are The Collective. With a commitment of $20 per month you can support one Kekeli woman and her work – and change a community.  Read below to see how your $20 is used.


It’s Time to Join

Get Specific

When you join The Collective we want you to know where your money is being spent. Below is a breakdown of where your $20 ends up. Don’t forget to click “Monthly recurring donation” to the right when you join!

$5 – Kekeli Woman Stipend

We are committed to providing a source of income for the women we train and don’t believe they should work for free. This is an important part of empowerment. The work they do is valuable and should be treated as such.

$5 – Ongoing Education

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we make it a priority to continue teaching the Kekeli women new skills and refreshing their old skills too. Your $5/mo covers their travel, food, and teaching costs to continue this education.

$2 – Teaching & Wound Supplies

The women are trained to dress basic wounds and treat minor cuts. This helps their community avoid long trips to the clinic and improves productivity. It also increases the visibility of the Kekeli women in their villages.

$8 – Ghana Program Costs

Part of any effective program is a good team. We have an outstanding Ghanaian team who runs the Kekeli program on a day-to-day basis. Your $8/mo covers these costs, including their wages, an extensive monitoring program, and communication with the USA team. They work incredibly hard and care deeply about the program.


Who Are You Supporting?

The Kekeli Women are more than just names and faces.  They are mothers and grandmothers, partners and friends, seamstresses and farmers, teachers and entrepreneurs.  We hope their photos help you understand a little better what amazing women they are.  Consider supporting their incredible work by giving $20 or more per month above.
