Kilele Foundation is a registered Community Based Organization (CBO) with the Ministry of Gender and Social Services in Kenya. The organization was founded in 2002 with a view to empowering local communities in Machakos County in Kenya to participate effectively in transforming their own socio-economic lives.
The formation of the foundation was precipitated by increased socio-economic problems in the county including youth unemployment that has resulted to drug abuse, chronic alcoholism and village crime, increased economic bondage of women, increased spread of HIV/AIDS, wanton destruction of the environment, apparent neglect of the disabled, low levels of access to clean and safe drinking water and marginalization of the girl child.
It is against this background that Kilele Foundation was formed with a view to mobilizing donor funding and local community support in order to generate local solutions for local socio-economic challenges in line with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
To become a leading organization in opening eyes, informing minds, touching hearts and joining hands towards sustainable community development in East Africa.
