Mission Statement

Our Mission We aim to help bring about and support authentic and coherent development practice amongst young people, organizations and institutions working towards those forms of Social transformation and rural development that most benefit the poor and marginalized. We do this through organizational interventions, training, accompanied learning and collaborative explorations. Out of active reflection on our experience, and through writing and disseminating, we share our insights and lessons gained, seeking to impact on wider development thinking and processes. Our work strives towards a just and civil society; societies in which more people have access to resources and power over choices.


"It is Hope for the Children of Mathare"

The establishment of the Center for Social and Rural Development, Inc

The establishment of the CSRD indicates an intention to share the work of CSRD more widely, to attempt to disseminate and promote its approach to the benefit of a wider group of people - both practitioners and organizations.

By forming ourselves into a Center for Social and Rural Development we are bringing to the communities a resource to help rural people and communities develop their practice, nurturing in them a developmental, and therefore transformational, way of understanding the world and intervening in it.
