Restoration and Rehabilitation of Human Dignity.
We take a grassroots and holistic approach in all our areas of work, prioritising diversity, and inclusivity for all. We build community ownership and leadership by providing volunteer opportunities and employment to our beneficiaries. We create a therapeutic community that provides belonging and purpose.
We have graduates from our programme, working with us as staff and volunteers. They also help to identify and follow up high-risk children meeting our referral criteria to our school, and contribute their time and skills to the programme activties during the holidays. We have an active youth network of peer educators in Isiolo that help provide quality assurance of our community services, alerting us of emerging issues and reporting on current needs and challenges.
Community elders, local leaders and government officials help to make up our larger community of stakeholders, influencing strategic direction and security for our organisation.
We involve and empower people from our communities: our youth peer providers who positively influence their peers; mothers and grandmothers who work as home-based carers; and elders who provide leadership in peace processes and when addressing cultural norms such as FGM and early marriage. We work with our community networks across our 9 Centre Points in Isiolo, urban areas and rural manyattas, as well as working closely with the police, department of probation and the provincial administration.
