COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

Supporting creating just, cohesive and equitable social development.

ILEG focuses on stimulating, encouraging, aiding and assisting local communities in improving their standards of living by promoting education, civic engagement, entrepreneurship and youth development, and Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

Overview

There is a close alignment between the outcomes envisaged in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the outcomes of almost all community development efforts whether they are focusing on issues of poverty, exclusion, inequality, lack of power or discrimination.

Community development is recognized as a critical element in Kenya’s development path. The social pillar of Vision 2030 for instance speaks to community development by seeking to create a ‘just, cohesive and equitable social development’.

Our Motivation

ILEG focuses on stimulating, encouraging, aiding and assisting local communities in improving their standards of living by promoting education; civic engagement; entrepreneurship and youth development; and information and communication (ICT).

The objective of the Community Development Programme is to enhance the standard of living of local communities in Kenya by promoting education, entrepreneurship, civic engagement and information and communication technology (ICT).

This is through:

  • Supporting bright students from poor backgrounds to access quality education by being able to attend and stay in school.
  • Promoting sustainable youth entrepreneurship through awareness raising, training and mentorship program.
  • Strengthening the capacity of local communities to participate in development policy and decision-making and to engage with and monitor performance and demand accountability by government and other stakeholders.
  • Strengthening the capacity of local communities in Kenya to access and utilize Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to support community development programs.
