Review for NICO Orphanage Home, Ogembo, , Kenya
Millennium Women & Youth Empowerment Organization ( MWAYEO) is a non profit, non governmental organization (NGO) registered with the NGO Bureau ,Nairobi, Kenya under the NGOs Act of 1990. Since its inception, the organization has developed into a locally and regionally recognized, independently governed and sustainable institution. Its areas of interventions include programmes in -Community Health-Support to children with HIV/AIDS -Water and sanitation, -Income generation activities What we have done in the past is to design and undertake activities which lead directly to community empowerment by strengthening peoples’voices and enhancing their capacities at a grassroots level.We at MWAYEO are inspired to tackle the root causes of poverty, environmental degradation, conflicts and social and economic imbalances and exclusions, by finding and providing practical solutions which, when accepted in good faith and translated into positive action, can have the highest potential for social transformation, justice and sustainable development. Through support from CDF Fund Bomachoge Constituency of Ksh 600,000 we were able to tap water from Omogonga River ,in partnership with NICO, by diverting water to homesteads down slopes of Mogonga, that includes,NICO Orphanage, reaching over 60 HHs with a total population of about 400 people. During the implementation phase we noted that the volunteers from NICO and its Board are very hard working, accountable and people of integrity.
