Kenya Aid is founded on a philosophy of empowerment and sustainability. Our services are built on a framework that is progressive yet still sensitive to the local needs and customs of the community we serve. It is our aim to reduce the burden of poverty in rural and remote Western Kenya through better health and education.
Quality health care is a fundamental and enabling human right and Kenya Aid seeks to provide this in an environment that is free from prejudice of any kind. We provide sustainable services that heavily involve the communities in which we operate. We also believe healthy communities are more productive and therefore provide a better foundation for education and economic development.
Kenya Aid also focuses on education as a way to empower the local community and future generations. From providing access to community health education through the hospital to running a school for 270 students, we are committed to providing inclusive and accessible education solutions to the local population.
Kenya Aid believes one of the essential keys to development is working closely with local government. We operate as a bridge between community need and government capability and as such, the long-term aim of our programs is to leave them in the hands of the community that has been empowered with the knowledge and tools to be successful in service delivery.
Kenya Aid also strongly believes in the importance of implementing development projects that are sustainable. As such, we only undertake new initiatives that can be funded on a recurrent basis from our current level of income.
