THE FEED PROGRAMME
Focused Economic Empowerment Development
In order to achieve vision 2030’s economic empowerment goal as well as SDG goals no 1. No poverty, 5. Gender equality and 8. Decent work and economic growth, we appreciate the importance of empowering communities at the grass roots.
Towards that end, we team up with local vocational centers, community based organizations, chamas and partner NGOs such the RONA Foundation to build capacity to groups at the local level.
This we achieve by identifying established social groups popularly known as chamas, made up of women or the youth regardless of whether formally registered or not. We identify a common skill set members of the group possess and are interested in further training or capitalizing on. Based on the outcome, we partner with vocational institutions and partner NGOs to provide training to these groups and teach them basic skills to start and run a business, save and invest.
Building on the group saving concept, popularly known as table banking or merry-go-rounds we intend to partner with local banks and savings and credit cooperative organizations (SACCOS) to train the groups on saving, accessing credit and investing.
