PROMOTING HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
All the projects we support today and in the past are focused on empowerment. Our aim is to provide help and relief right now through health and development programmes that will ultimately bring independence to the communities involved.
Predominantly our projects have been focused on helping children through nursery rehabilitation centres which provide food, welfare and basic education. As we have grown this has extended to agriculture, fishing and second and third level education and health programmes. Of course water resources have been a constant feature and our partner in Turkana MCSPA, has built rock dams, earth pan dams, bore holes and irrigation infrastructure.
Empowerment means helping people to get the skills and training then need as well as supporting practical considerations such as construction and equipment. Many of the projects we support involve seminars and workshops that help the local communities to attain the right level of skills, how to work with money, and how to establish a small business.
To ensure that real empowerment of the people in Turkana is sustainable it is vital to provide training and skills for the leaders of these communities. Our community leadership funding helps to support regular skills seminars across the region and the establishment of infrastructure to support the communities in the long term management of their projects.
