Help Mission Development Services (HMDS) was registered in 2004 as a national non-governmental, non sectarian, non-profit development Organization.
HMDS has focused on youth education, vocational skill training and entrepreneurship development to address the growing youth problem of unemployment and attendant concerns.
The Organization is based at Nakuru- the headquarters of Rift Valley Province- and serves different communities in Rift Valley and Eastern Provinces of Kenya, through community development initiatives, vocational and education sponsorship – with special emphasis on the Girl-child - and improvement of physical facilities in project schools.
The Mission of the Organization is to assist and empower disadvantaged, vulnerable people and communities towards self-determination, self-reliance and self-sufficiency’ and responsible citizenship.
HMDS endeavors for sustainable livelihood for everyone.
HMDS initiatives are implemented through grassroots institutions such as Primary Schools, Youth and Women´s groups, and Youth Polytechnics. The groups and institutions have their capabilities enhanced to fully participate in and sustain their self improvement projects towards poverty alleviation and quality of livelihood. Through this strategic work approach, HMDS has built credibility with the people and communities and is today well placed to speak for the vulnerable groups, not only in the Rift Valley region, but also Kenya as a whole.
