INTEGRATED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
We work with the local community to create sustainable development solutions at the grassroots!
We are undertaking the challenge of improving livelihoods within the community by creating sustainable food security through farmer training, equipping and support; empowerment of vulnerable groups through income-generating activities, field school training, equipping and grants, as well as several other interventions.
Maternal & Neonatal Child Health
This project addresses itself to SDG 3: Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages; specifically at targets 1 and 2, to reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births by 2030 and to end preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 years of age.

Our WASH department seeks to promote access to clean and safe drinking water; encourage the adoption of safe sanitary and hygiene practices through the strategies of community-led total sanitation; and also encourages conservation of the environment and natural resource management.
