Article: 2 Introduction/ Justifications.
Kilele Foundation is a non-profit making community-based organization in, Machakos at Machakos District Kenya registered under the ministry of culture & social services. We comprise all sorts of youth from students to out of school youth and the also the community within Machakos County .
Generally, Machakos County Sub-district is a semi-arid / arid land inhabited by peasants who depend on produce from their small shambas. The produce in turn depends on the rain patterns and occasion tonally is insufficient thereby necessitating the need for relief food from well wishers and the international communities. Sometimes the peasants supplement their products with small herds of goats and cows depending on the size of their free hold piece of land.
Due to severe weather patterns, most of the peasants cannot afford to sustain their children in school. This results to many school dropouts who end up in drugs, local alcoholism, petty theft and early and unwanted pregnancies and marriages. This continues to drag the community back since the newly weds have no means of earning income and the chain continues with their children.
In order to help the less fortunate while at the same time addressing the above mentioned development drawbacks, some enlightened members of the community felt need for initiating/introducing a community based organisation and ended up forming Kilele Foundation. Kilele Foundation will endeavour to address the issues with a view of reforming the affected community embers. The above problems become compounded when such less fortunate people get infected with the deadly HIV/AIDS and CANCER. All volunteers within community , Inlcluding Teachers, Woman group, handicraft Man, Youth, Nurses, Doctors, Christian and Muslims, have donated their time and skills to meet the needs of orphans and HIV/AIDS victims and also fighting the spreading of any other terrible diseases within the community .
