Present Beneficiary (Kenyan CBO)

Empower Together Kenya Foundation is currently partnering with Pundo Community Based Organisation.

Below is the information regarding PCBO:



Pundo is a name of the late pre-dominant chief of Kanyadoto location which was by then under Ndhiwa Division, South Nyanza District in Nyanza Province. Now it is under Nyarongi division, Ndhiwa district in Nyanza province (County,Homabay).The chief who was powerful and rich died in 1967 and left behind more than ten wives, a number of children and grand-children. Some part of the community live in a place called Unga. After his demise, the family that has turned to a big community became poor due to the death of the sons /daughters. Due to the death of the sons and their wives, many of his grand children have remained orphans who cannot afford to complete school for lack of school fees. It is this main challenge of education that led to the birth of “Pundo Community Based Development Organization”.


A part from education, the community also has a big water problem and this will also be addressed in our objectives. Besides this, there is no nearby health facility that can serve the medical problems of the community. There is no good transport or good road so many people die for lack of quick medical attention. The organization has a structure that they want to turn into a health centre to handle the medical problems of the community.
