Community Empowerment

Undugu has two projects under this program are: - Women Self Help Group (SHG) and Community development projects.

The Self Help Group approach is an informal association of poor women in a community with a common objective of working together for their economic and social development, empowerment and also for their overall area development. Through the group, the members are able to save money, discuss issues affecting them and make empowered decisions. They are empowered to take loans and establish linkages with the government. Currently, the program is being implemented in Kisumu, Machakos and with the parents of the Undugu schools.

The Community development project will empower community by offering them training in social auditing of community projects, leadership, micro-enterprise development and advocacy on community rights to enable them to participate in public and decision making. The strategic objective for the program is “To contribute towards building an informed and economically empowered society whose members are able to participate meaningfully in their won development and influence decisions that affect their lives”.
