About us
┬┐What is it all about?

AFRICAN CHILD INITIATIVE AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FORUM is a community empowering programme working with self-help groups, income generating projects, host families, and the community in Kivaani location, Kangundo District, in Kenya, to support Government and donor efforts in order to eradicate poverty and improve the social and economic situation of the villagers.

We also work with the church, schools, and youth polytechnics as a focal point of civic education and modern communication networking. It is the forum where the villagers are making world wide contacts by hosting guests freely and exchanging cultural values. Our home stay programme have opened doors with contacts from all continents and in return some of our guests have participated in funding some of the community projects.

Furthermore we lobby for the african childhood who stay in the village and fight difficulties meeting their daily needs due to a certain disadvantage; for instance: if the child had lost one or both parents due to H.I.V./Aids or if the parents are too poor to afford offering the child the basic needs and education. Our popular programme called Omega Child is the core for formula for success and in order to support African Child in this programme we conduce long distance adoptions, talent search, placement at a children home, and other initiatives.

Our core values are networking and collaboration as a basis for acquiring and sharing cultural diversity. We advocate for community participation and resource mobilization, planning, monitoring and evaluation of the projects for the benefit of the community and the funding agents.

We indeed collaborate with young people, parents, teachers, professionals, community leaders and others the effort to empower young people and promote their contribution in the community around the issues of familiar planning, health, H.I.V./Aids, environment conservation, leadership, and any other key inter-related socioeconomic affairs. There are affiliated projects in the slums as some of those young people living in the village come to the city after school, in search of jobs hence having a new home in the slum after failing to secure any job in the city. At the moment we are encouraging them to come back to the village and help in mobilizing the available resources and participate within the project.

In summary, African child initiative has 4 key areas of intervention in the village:

* Poverty eradication
* Entrepreneurship encouraging
* Community development
* Education and learning with special emphasis in computer literacy

We identify critical issues that concern this villages, slums, and community and translate them into short term and long term programmes.
