Descripción del proyecto
The Ahero Resource Centre is located in Ahero, about 25km east of Kisumu town. The Centre serves as a One-Stop-Shop, offering a variety of services to the local community. The centre is equipped with a training facility to provide capacity building on Drought Resilient Agriculture, Entrepreneurship and Adult Education. The in-class training is complemented by practical learning on the adjacent Farmer Field School (Model Farm) which also encompasses a Greenhouse, Tree Nursery and Poultry Farm that provide practical examples of modern farming practices as well as a source of nutrition and income for the Orphan Feeding Program.
The Ahero Resource Centre is also equipped with a comprehensive rainwater-harvesting infrastructure to fully utilize the short and heavy rains in the region. Additionally a borehole provides a reliable and affordable source of safe water for the community.
From time to time, depending on the availability of funds, 150 school-going Orphans and Vulnerable Children get a free lunch at the centre in order to improve their concentration and school performance.
The Centre also hosts a Community Bank offering financial services, tailored to the needs of the local community, including saving accounts or issuing loans to members. This boosts the economic activities of the over 150 bank members.
