One of the major challenges of development in Africa include but are not limited to the “The Africa Production gap” (Africa is a consumer society rather than a producer’s society). Additionally, there is a high rate of unemployment, corruption and accountability gap. The companies act of 2015, however provides ease through which organizations can be registered and operate in Kenya to enhance productivity of non-governmental organizations.
County governments in Kenya are providing much needed developmental services to all corners of the country by focusing resources on local priorities. This system of devolution has the potential to accelerate Kenya’s development in a more inclusive, relevant and sustainable way.
Despite so many efforts to build the support the communities in Kenya, so many communities still struggle with issues relating to food security, unemployment of youths, corruption, gender based violence, lack of funds for education of children, and the list continues. It is for this reason that CICAD has been founded to contribute to the improvement of the community power by proposing as strategy of innovative approaches to community development. CICAD believes that with a change of mindset and innovative community empowerment, a sustainable community development can be realized.
