In the past year Loom has seen incredible changes and expansion of our work in East Africa. This year’s annual report celebrates everything from biogas construction to an alliance of eighty-nine schools working among the most vulnerable. We celebrate the innovation, sacrifice, and tenacity of our partners who are committed to seeing their communities become a safe and thriving place for every child.
At Loom, we stand with people of wonder and power because they are the key to rewriting the story of poverty. Over time we have seen how one spark of acceleration creates exponential impact. An example of this is the village of Nguseron, whose remote location had cut their children off from education – the closest school was a three hour walk. Through their initiative and Loom’s acceleration of local partners, in October 2019 this community will live up to its name, the place of laughter, as children have their own school and the opportunity of a better life.
All across East Africa, there are villages like Nguseron. We believe that. together, we can continue to scale up these models and accelerate local experts with a long-term view in mind. Thank you for your faithful investment and for being part of the movement towards sustainable change.
