Kenya Community Development Foundation (KCDF) is a public philanthropic foundation that supports sustainable community driven development. Formed in 1997, KCDF is the first and oldest indigenous foundation of its kind in East Africa.
Our Vision : "All communities giving and working together in prosperity".
Our Mission : "Promoting sustainable development of communities for social justice, through institution building, partnerships, resource mobilisation and policy influencing".
The KCDF model for community development is a unique one that is now globally recognized as best practice - most recently by the Dubai International Awards for Best Practices. It is based on KCDF's Theory of Change:
"KCDF believes that systemic and enduring change is possible when communities are able to initiate and drive their development agenda, work with governments and other actors to access basic rights and services as well as harness and grow their own resources. KCDF therefore invests in enhancing organized community-led initiatives to create a firm basis for sustainable development and social justice"
