Kirongo Christian Integrated Community Project was founded in 1986 with the support of Amani UK. In 2014 we have 15 groups, comprising widows groups, farmers groups, plus 2 youth groups, 2 Community Health Workers (CHW's) groups and one spiritual group. The Project supports 3 starter schools, being Kirongo Rainbow School, Okwe Early Childhood School and Moral Early Childhood School, with a current total of more than 250 children, enjoying not only a good level of teaching, but also a breakfast every morning.
In 2013 we were successful in registering a community health clinic called the Ted Rayner Memorial Clinic, having been founded the previous year by Jan Rayner, in memory of her late husband. It now provides a growing range of health care and education, for young and old alike and is situated in the Kirongo compound, alongside the Kirongo Rainbow School.
Kirongo is situated 1495m above sea level, some 20 Kms north of Oyugis on the Kisumu – Kisii road and directly serves more than 1,000 people out of the total population of 20,000, in an area of 35km2.
To encourage and nurture a process which will ensure community groups develop on a sustainable basis and offer hope to their members and support to new groups in the community, even after external support ceases.
