Years of

Existence

Homa Hills Community Development Organization (HHCDO) was founded in 1980 by the Norwegian donor historically known as Redd Banna. The main intention was to rescue the community swinging in poverty and vulnerable life style. Redd Banna believed that life of a child rests on their parents and the entire community accommodating the child. To ensure a sustainable community, Redd Banna initiated an Agricultural and Technical Training Centre to help impact the community with practical skills. Those who acquired practical knowledge from this centre became their own bosses, and could support their children’s education.  

HHCDO was legally registered as an NGO in 1994. The centre is situated at the Western Shores of Lake Victoria in Kenya, where it occupies 158.4 acres of leasehold land, in a collegial setting. This makes HHCDO a unique NGO with a special opportunity for community development due to its mix of both social and enterprise projects. The Redd Banna however, phased out in 1999, due to deteriorated diplomatic condition experienced in Kenya.

Mission

To build the capacity of the community to facilitate sustainable development to support vulnerable groups

Vision

A self-sustained community that enjoys quality life

Core Values

The organization is guided by partnership, professionalism, integrity, empowerment, communication, and respect and quality service. HHCDO implements both social and enterprise development activities.

Direct Poverty Alleviation

We directly bridge the gap of essential or basic services like food, medication, Anti-Retroviral drugs (ARVs), vaccinations, and de-worming to the very vulnerable people and especially during the initial stages even as we later mainstream them into the broader society.

Advocacy and Campaign

At this level the community groups engage their leaders and petition other stakeholders to confront human rights violations afflicting the vulnerable groups. Here the approach to poverty is rights based and small groups are encouraged to coalesce and network into thematic advocacy groups.

Education/Vocational Services

While supporting direct educational programs principally through OVC projects, we are currently lobbying educational entities and the county government of Homa Bay to rehabilitate the Homa Hills Youth Polytechnic to provide accessible vocational training opportunities to youths within the community.
