Tropical Focus for Rural Development is a not-for-profit Non-Governmental organization working in western region of Kenya to alleviate poverty and uplift the living standards of the rural communities. We aim at improving the livelihoods of rural poor through support for education and shelter of most under-privileged children and girls, development of income generating projects, socio-economic re-stabilization against the effects of HIV/AIDS, development of domestic water supply systems and support for basic rural infrastructures.
Our policy is to support and develop undertakings that will ‘jump-start’ the communities into sustainable self-reliance. The most disadvantaged members of the communities especially women, children and the poorest are specifically targeted by our organization. Protection, conservation and rehabilitation of the environment are integrated within the programs, since environment is a main sustaining resource for humanity and the world as a whole.
