We are a community based organization focused on improving livelihood through women empowerment, education and water and sanitation projects in rural Eastern sides of Kenya.
Tana Community Initiative started as an initiative to empower rural women in the Eastern side of Kenya specifically two villages to take an active role in their own development. With time, the organization has continued to meet this goal through education, agriculture, water and sanitation projects as well as engaging everyone in the community. At the moment, the organization serves two communities in the interior Machakos region and has since partnered with two schools, worked on economic empowerment project, life skills training as well as community sensitization projects.
We are currently planning to set up a community resource center that will serve as meeting place as well as community library. We are in need of volunteers to help us fund-raise for building materials and join in the actual work if possible. We are also for life skill training as well as research that informs the continuity of the work of the organization. We value any contribution and as a small organization that is on the initial stages appreciate any contribution whether remotely or physically.
The world has become a global village and while some may not have a chance to be physically in our community, we recognize that they skills they have may get to where we are. We would like to encourage anyone one with fundraising interest and skills to set a website for us to reach out to us. We are also open to explore research opportunities that can be conducted remotely.
