4) Activities Currently ongoing

In summary, in the process of pursuing and attaining Bachelor of Science (Biochemistry) in Kenyatta University, I got empowered in appreciating and interrelating life dynamics in both plants and animals. I have then integrated these skills in fulfilling my inborn passion of seeing community being at access to abundant food both in quality and quantity.

I and other like minded persons have formed and registered a community based recourse center which endeavors to mobilize the community and community based organizations as well as linking them with the government departments, NGO's and other relevant development partners. This is in order to attain sustainable development in areas of food production and marketing besides encouraging environment sustainable projects.

I have been in further empowered in various workshops and seminars: for example, horticultural crops production and marketing by horticultural crops development authority (HCDA), and entrepreneurship by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Management of Decentralized funds by the Centre of Law and Research International, poultry production and marketing by KINDA hatchery ltd, formation of common interest groups (CIG) by NALEP.

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission is to promote farming in the community within and without Kenya as a business for the purpose of alleviating poverty.

VISION STATEMENTS

To facilitate the creation of Value Addition and Cottage Industry Development (VACID) of international standards, through pooled recourses in production, processing, marketing and capacity building programmes.

GOALS

Improve rural livelihood in Kenya and beyond, through enhanced access to cash income flow, improve human health and sustainable environment

5) Past Activities and Impact to the community.

As a community volunteer, I have made it possible for the KINDA hatchery ltd to recruit and train community on poultry production and marketing followed by the formation of common interest group within Uriri District.

CIAT-TSBF through Uriri Soya farmers co-operative society in collaboration with the resource centre have train people on value chain involved in Soya beans, which the community appreciated Soya byproducts eg. Soya meat, Soya milk, Soya beverages and Soya nut.

I have been involved in establishing and running tree nurseries, planting of trees and conducting environmental conservation programmes. Besides holding various forums which bring stakeholders together in improving value chain on fruits available in the community.

As a member of the National Youth Council as well as board of Governors Uriri Youth Polytechnic, I have trained and guided a number of youth groups in developing proposals for accessing the youth enterprise development funds on Agribusiness related projects.

My experiences in the communal work have revealed that the area of value addition and cottage industry development is still a big challenge in the community. This challenge can only be addressed conclusively by VACID Africa Projects.
