WHO ARE WE?

Together with Team Kenya, Twende Pamoja have transformed the lives of over 5,000 young people and their families in Ndhiwa.

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.

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.
