What We Do
Twende Pamoja has transformed the lives of over 80,000 people in Ndhiwa, including 25,000 directly and approximately 40,000 young girls indirectly.
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 became Twende Pamoja. Twende Pamoja has developed into a strong and expanding independent Kenyan NGO, and works in collaboration with partner organisation, Team Kenya.
Twende Pamoja is a Kenya-based female focused charity, in place to help educate and empower girls and women in Homa Bay County in Kenya. TwendePamoja is working towards facilitating the recognition and empowerment of community members, with specific focus on girls and women, through various development initiatives.
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.

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.
