INCREASED OPPORTUNITIES FOR SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
INCREASED ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION AND PROTECTION
Ndhiwa Community Empowerment and Development Project was set up as a grassroots self-help group back in 2004, registered by the social development department with the government and ran by local community members. NCEDP was registered as an NGO on the 23rd May 2013.
From 2019, NCEDP is officially Twende Pamoja. Our aim is that by 2020 Twende Pamoja will have grown further and developed into an even stronger independent Kenyan NGO, able to sustain its activities with less direct financial support from its main collaboration partner organisation, Team Kenya.
Twende Pamoja is a Kenya-based female charity, in place to help uplift girls and women in Homa Bay County. TwendePamoja is working towards facilitating the recognition and empowerment of community members, with specific focus towards girls and women, through various development initiatives. Our main focuses are:
We believes that human capital is the world’s greatest asset and that universal access to knowledge is vital as a catalyst to progress. We also recognize that all people do not have equal opportunities to access to knowledge and information and those who need it the most are often left behind. Educate a girl and you will have educated the whole community.
A reduction in extreme poverty, gender inequality and injustice in Homa Bay County.
To facilitate the empowerment of community members, with specific focus towards girls and women, through appropriate development initiatives.
To improve people’s living standard through: Practical agricultural advancement: Education support: Promotion of environmental sustainability: Creation of HIV/AIDS awareness: Improving access to information technology: Advocating for peaceful coexistence: Protection of Human Rights and facilitating poverty alleviation.
Improving people's standard of living through sustainability and accountability.
Together Twende Pamoja and Team Kenya aim to deliver all programs with sustainable development as a priority. This is development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We believe in an approach that is concerned with the environment but also about ensuring a strong, healthy and just society. This means meeting the diverse needs of all people in existing and future communities, promoting personal wellbeing, social cohesion and inclusion, and creating equal opportunity.
By 2020, we aim to ensure the sustainability of Team Kenya in the UK, the sustainability of Twende Pamoja in Kenya and the sustainability of the impact we have through programme delivery.
