Program Description

The Ahero Resource Center started by CIVS is located in Ahero, about 25km east of Kisumu town. The Center serves as a One-Stop-Shop offering a variety of services to the local community. The centre is equipped with a training facility, which provides capacity building opportunities in Agriculture, Entrepreneurship and serves as a venue for community groups meeting. The in-class training is complemented by practical learning on the adjacent Farmer Field School i.e. a model Farm, which encompasses a Greenhouse, open farm and Poultry house that provide practical examples of modern farming practices. The Centre is also equipped with a comprehensive rainwater harvesting infrastructure to fully utilize the short and heavy rains in the region.
From time to time, depending on the availability of funds, school going Orphans and Vulnerable Children get a free lunch at the center to improve their concentration and school performance. Additionally a borehole provides a reliable and affordable source of safe water for the community. The center also has constructed Safe house to provide temporary accommodation for people who are facing hostility in the community. There is a fully operational Kindergarten for children who are either affected or infected with HIV/AIDS whereby the children receive free meals and education.
