A self-reliant community where people are free from HIV/AIDS and are living an improved quality of life.
Our mission is inspired by God’s love for humanity, KIFAD stands out to challenge and respond to causes and consequences of disease, poverty and ignorance with a commitment to mobilize communities to solve their own problems and live with dignity.
Transparency. The organization will facilitate the participation of right holding beneficiaries and partners through an open divulgement of budget and plan details. Strong emphasis will be placed upon this openness, as it is an essential step in building mutual trust among stakeholders and promoting cooperation.
Accountability. The organization will conform to internationally acceptable financial management systems in order to be accountable to donors. Accountability to rights holders, local government, and the community will also be emphasized. They will be given the opportunity to evaluate program performance through the annual development fora and will participate in consultations before major decisions are made. These activities will contribute to the organization’s positive reputation. In addition, accountability will promote confidence, effectiveness, and the efficient use of resources.
Justice. The organization will ensure fairness by functioning without bias regarding religion, tribe, or creed. The organization will provide equal opportunities to both women and men, especially during staff recruitment and the selection of project beneficiaries. All activity will be based upon a belief in justice for all and a respect for human dignity
Participation. The organization will strive to involve rights holders and the community in program planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation. Such participation will be promoted with the aim of making the organization’s interventions more meaningful for those being served.
Quality. We believe in quality service provision. Quality assurance will be at the center of our interventions and will be reinforced, among others, through authentication of manuals and content, vetting participants’ delivery after training, ensuring that contractors use right materials, mixture, etc and ensuring quality of the products we design
Professionalism. We will ensure observance of professionalism in service delivery. We shall do this by targeting skilled staff for the implementation of our interventions as well as adherence to acceptable professional values and ethics. Professionalism will promote good quality for our interventions.
Family-centered approach is used to build self-reliance of vulnerable households. The primary participant of KIFAD interventions is the household, with particular attention to women and children, and secondarily the whole community. In this way, the program makes services available that respond to the unique needs and vulnerabilities of each household, guided by fine-tuned needs mapping and the development and implementation of innovative “household development plans”. Each household is guided along a pathway towards increased self-reliance. At the same time, using a children’s rights approach, the program supports the creation of an enabling environment in which children are valued and cared for and protected from abuse, neglect and exploitation. The family approach has been central to KIFAD and throughout its programmatic experience for vulnerable children.
Child protection interventions are aimed to strengthen social safety nets protecting VC from abuse and exploitation and increase access to legal support and civil restitution for VC and their households. The strategies in which activities are rooted are:
• Mobilize communities and increase their awareness around child protection concerns.
• Empower families to access protection and legal redress services
• Enhance referral mechanisms through which households can access relevant protection and legal services
