The organisation was initiated by Kanyike community members led by Rev. Kakuba Kapia after realising that people were suffering from AIDS, poverty and poor health conditions in addition to poor infrastructure and internal conflicts. They hoped to turn these problems into opportunities for dignified livelihoods.
They started with engaging in agriculture and livelihood improvement like send a cow, pineapple growth for commercial benefits, piggery projects, bird rearing, etc. They implemented primary health care activities e.g. health education, awareness (HIV/AIDS), home based care, water and sanitation.
Since the organisation was founded, there has been livelihood improvement socially and economically due to livelihood empowerment projects like piggery, send a cow and local micro-finance. There is improved primary health care where the community can access the basic health care services at a pocket friendly cost sharing/beneficially friendly. There is improved water and sanitation where people access clean water and improved pit latrines among others. Generally,the organisation turns problems into opportunities
The current programmes being undertaken so far include;
• Community Based healthcare programme
• OVC support programme
• Women and youth empowerment programme
• Education enhancement and vocation skills training programme in carpentry skills
• Agriculture and rural livelihood empowerment
• Water and sanitation
The organisation has so far acquired land of 20 acres and structures. It has constructed a well-equipped health centre III for the community. It has a well established primary school to cater for OVC’s formal education skills. It has a well-established vocational skills training centre which is providing vocational skills at a free cost for the disadvantaged youths and school drop outs. The organisation has one of the most equipped dentistry centre and HIV/AIDS care centre.
The organisation however still lacks adequate funds and a sustainable source to sustain the programmes we implement.
Thanks a lot to Sr. Joan Yatos (UK), Kanyike Project Charity team (UK) for their support to the organisation.
