Community Asset Building and Development Action (CABDA) is non-profit making organization established and registered by the NGO board of Kenya in the year 2005. The founder, having worked with 2 different international organizations, wanted to ensure that she establishes a grass root organization that has a local based structured system that will work together with families in communities to create sustainable wealth that will lead them to self -reliance.
This local organization, would then further, help in mobilizing assets within and outside the communities for the benefit of its own families while working with them to tackle Health, education, livelihood, local economies through job and wealth creation as well as tackling any other thing that may want to hinder their development. In order to ensure all projects implemented have everlasting impact and sustainable within the communities, our organization will also get involved in capacity building and institutional strengthening for both its staff, volunteers, local groups, committees and local CSOs. This is important in ensuring community members and all key stakeholders are involved in every step of their own development.
