Community Development

Emergency Relief

When support is lacking and all development solutions have failed emergency relief is the last hope.

Our emergency response is based on the needs of the affected population and our capacity to respond.

The Centre for International Voluntary Service (CIVS) approaches its emergency response programming through a framework of activities to save lives and support livelihoods, knowing that these measures are only the first step followed by many others to sustainably support a community to stand on its own feet and build resilience against the cause of the intervention.

Water and Sanitation

Water is life. But a reliable, clean source of water is still a far fetched dream for many Kenyans. Nearly half of the Kenyan population lacks access to a source of safe water and nearly 2/3 cannot access adequate sanitation facilities as the country still faces huge challenges in water provision for domestic and agricultural use with erratic weather patterns causing droughts and water shortages. Kenya also has a limited renewable water supply and is classified as a water scarce country.

ICT & Work Readiness

Africa is currently witnessing an increased use of Information and communications technology (ICT) in many sectors of daily activities. Technological advancements in ICT have seen a shift of many functions to the virtual space for example education, jobs, banking services, meetings, etc.
Young people are proving to be the most users and beneficiaries of the ICT space. However, in Kenya, ICT reach is not equal to everyone and the youth in rural areas have proved to be the most disadvantaged. Most young people in Kenyan villages lack basic computer knowledge and internet access. This has deprived them of opportunities in advancing their education and exploring the job markets.
CIVS offers training in ICT and works preparedness to local youth to prepare them for the technology competitive world and the job market. Career youth acquire practical skills in the use of Microsoft tools and the internet. They also get exposed to knowledge on personal leadership development, career development planning, personal finance management, skills for workplace success, and knowledge of the labor market.
The program aims for the rural youth and has been useful in exposing them to development opportunities as they are involved in the technical progress. Through the program, the youth are now able to use the internet for research on available scholarships, apply for jobs, and learn more concerning contemporary issues hence making valuable industry connections.
