This is a registered NGO ,working with the local community at grass root level in up country rural set ups of Kenya near the boarder of Kenya and Uganda down slopes of Mt Elgon in Kimilili.
We are involved in many different projects with mission to offer comprehensive care and support to marginalized members of society and bring about sociol-economic independence and we have a vision to live in a just society where the less fortunate are facilitated in acquiring protection, care, support and knowledge to better their lives.

Women and youth empowerment programs
Local women and youth lacking formal education and or semi illiterate are facilitated to come together form groups of about six per group to start various economical income generating activities as an empowerment to family (household). This is done through various workshops like Agri-business, business workshops and after acquiring knowledge is facilitated to the next stage of initiating income generating activities per group Since in Kenya access to formal banking credit facilities is challenging where mostly a security like land title deed is required and loan guarantors that most women and youth don't access due to lack of securities, we initiated table banking project for this groups, where they meet weekly, making small contributions in form of shares ,in the presence and leadership of both group leaders and our project accountant who helps them in book keeping among others assistance, accrued shares provides basis of resources through which members now borrow to refinance their businesses activities and return at certain period of time with small interest which is cultivated back to the group's shares to increase the resources available for credited facilities for members only.
Workshops done to local community, for knowledge empowerment on best practices in agriculture this helps the local community to increase farm out put hence food security and fight famine in the local community. Kenya being an agricultural economy Kimilili community purely depend on farming that depend on natural climate which deforestation and other human activities has made Kenya as a whole suffers from climatic changes from usual to negative.
