Bilal Muslim Mission Kenya

To promote the Madhab of Ahlul Bait (a.s.) with other non-member Shia communities and with Muslims and non-Muslims at large in Kenya

The Economic Upliftment Project is about empowering women in the rural centres. This project consists of 15 Women groups established in the rural Centres which are managed by the Mission.

Behind closed doors, we use charcoal stove (jiko) to cook and also to keep warm during cold weathers. Studies conducted by World health organization in 2012 show that 4.3 million people die each year from exposure to indoor air pollution caused by cooking in open fires or rudimentary stoves in poorly ventilated rooms. In order to combat with this problem, Bilal Muslim Mission of Kenya introduced the Jiko Bora Project in the year 2018.

The main objective of this project is to promote a healthy lifestyle and also to promote an economical and efficient way of cooking.

The cost of one Jiko is Kshs. 3,600/-. Most Women from the rural area cannot afford to pay this amount due to financial constraints. The Mission has eased their worry by providing them with these jiko’s in form of interest free loans which members can clear in a span of 3 months. A total of 23 Jiko’s were disbursed in 3 centres namely: Burani, Mackinnon and Shimoni in the month of November 2018.
