The Bishop Chabuga Foundation is a local organization that was founded by the African Divine Church in 2015. Its major objective is reaching out to community members and empowering the youth and marginalized community through provision of basic needs like education, health care, HIV/AIDS campaign awareness and offering vocational training to the youth living around the community. The organization manages a Primary School operating from grade one to eight. The school enrols pupils who come from the surrounding local community and are from poor backgrounds. The institution also has a feeding program where the pupils can get their meals in order to focus on their education. It also has a vocational training centre that is used to train youths. It offers tailoring and carpentry, which aids them to acquire skills which will help them to better their lives and thus to become better persons in the community. Additionally, there is a dispensary where the local community members get access to health care. They also have a Voluntary Counselling Centre where they do counselling and testing of HIV, thus increasing the awareness of the youth and the community about the disease and teaching them to beware of the pandemic disease.
The Centre For International Voluntary Service (CIVS Kenya) is a community development agency operating especially in the marginalized and poverty-stricken rural areas of Kenya. It pursues an integrated socio-economic and cultural development approach in the fight against poverty and social exclusion of Kenyan communities under the maxim “development by people”. CIVS believes that people should retain the responsibility for their own development while they support, guide and mentor their efforts with innovative and customized high quality services. CIVS achieves these aims through its two program areas: International Voluntary Service and Community Development.
