Empowering Communities, Changing Lives...

We are a Christian Community Based – nonprofit making Organisation, set out to ameliorate the plight of women, adolescents and vulnerable groups. Our major focus is to create networks of Women and youth change makers in communities through livelihood programs, health promotion, capacity building, coaching, peer support and research. We aim to build Women and youth as role models and champions of change in their respective communities. Our community-based interventions strive at improving the well-being of vulnerable women, children and youth

Community development is at the heart of our service through direct interventions like community mobilization, environmental protection, health and sanitation awareness creation, research, education and elimination of poverty. We are dedicated to empowering women and youth to achieve their full economic potential by inspiring them to become advocates, change makers and entrepreneurial champions in their localities. We equip our project beneficiaries with 21st century skills, resources, exposure, opportunities and a broad platform that facilitates networking, learning, partnership and sharing of experiences.
