PWRDF Development Project

PWRDF has partnered with the National Council of Churches who has worked in Kakuma refugee camp since 1994. They deliver services and education on reproductive health care, and HIV and AIDs prevention. They also carry out projects to improve the livelihood of refugee communities, such as food production and income generation for youth. The refugee camp now has a population of 182,000 refugees, and the number still increasing due to regional conflicts and famine affecting the region. The project has led focus groups with women and helped ensure they are attending antenatal care visits. The project has also helped women generate income by making and selling peanut butter.
