In assisting communities, a broad based partnership is required to address the many intertwined
social problems. In this regard AEF strives to create strong partnership
between the communities, the government and
development partners. In one of our model CBO, KVDC, the partnership has continued to grow. The Government has been the greatest
partner providing support through the District development Unit. This working relationship with the development office provides
an opportunity for accessing public resources and technical expertise.In addition, AEF has sourced and encouraged partners
to visit the KVDC site to explore opportunities for collaboration. The result has been a growing list of partners which include:
- The Patron and family donated 3 acres of land for
the project site,
