At CIS we believe in getting the locals to work with locals. We hire Kenyan staff to communicate and co-create solutions with partner schools.
Over 90% of our ground staff and ground volunteers are Kenyan students / graduates. We empower the youth, so in the future they can make more impact to the country. Upon harvesting, crops are often sold to communities nearby. Students and parents are involved, and the neighborhood knows the project through words of mouth.
CIS’s agricultural package is more than planting, or sustaining a school. It is a means to connect the people, and to build a community.
