"Entrepreneurs are solving Kenya’s most pressing problems, from lack of access to lighting to a need for safe, affordable sanitation. Gobee created “Social Enterprise Stories from Urban Kenya” – a photography project with a coffee table book as its centerpiece – as an ode to the difficult work of making change outside the normal channels of government and the typical development agencies."
Jacardanda Health works to provide quality, affordable health care in low-resource settings, ensuring that every Kenyan mother has access to the care they need for a safe and healthy delivery. Their innovative mobile services allow clients to prepay towards costs, and their clinics provide quality services at one-fifth the cost of other private hospitals.
Says Gobee, "[we] sought the four most innovative, social-minded organizations across all sectors in Kenya and instead found the biggest game changers anywhere in the world."
