“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
At Team Kenya, we work in close partnership with local people, local and national organisations in Kenya and other international development organisations to ensure our work is informed by what our communities really need, and what the global community is saying really works.
Twende Pamoja delivers the projects on the ground in Ndhiwa. We have worked with Twende Pamoja since the organisation was founded in 2007 as a grassroots self-help group run by local community members. In 2015, it became a registered Kenyan NGO.
We work in close partnership with Twende Pamoja, which is operated by local community members who have an in-depth understanding of the specific needs of the communities we are supporting. This ensures all work in Kenya is community-led, sustainable, and holistic.
Team Kenya provide funding, capacity building, training, friendship and support to Twende Pamoja. We are committed to shifting the power and combatting top-down approaches, therefore Team Kenya does not dictate projects or any work in Kenya. We are committed to empowering Twende Pamoja to lead and deliver effective projects, informed directly by the needs of their community, so we can support their journey to becoming a sustainable Kenyan NGO.
