KEDOVO e.V is a registered Non- Profit Organisation founded in 2013 in Kaltenkirchen, Germany based on the strong convictions to lift women, youth and children out of vulnerability and poverty. KEDOVO -Kenyan Chapter was founded the same year.

Our mission is to encourage economic and agricultural rural development through education and trainings in order to promote the social welfare of the communities. We focus on establishing and facilitating economic livelihood opportunities for the rural communities in Central Kenya.

Our intervention:
• Encourage economic and agricultural development through open training programs aimed at successful agri-business practises and undertakings which will see the communities trained on sustainable self sufficiency projects.
• Marketing interventions by connecting the small scale farmers to the global market. This will be achieved by reducing middlemen and brokers in the supply chains.
• Organizing training workshops to enhance Entire Capacity Building within the local communities.
• Foster financial and entrepreneurial initiatives among the women and youth to inspire progress, personal growth, empowerment and sustainability.
• Mobilize all purposeful financial and in-kind resources to support the education of the vulnerable children in the community and assist in the improvement of their livelihoods.
