About Me

My name is Kennedy Oloo.
I grew up in Nairobi, Kibera slums. I am a teacher by profession.
I'm a cofounder of Daraja Community Organization in Ulafu Sub-location, Siaya County, Kenya.
I like getting involved in community projects e.g Youth Empowerment programs, environmental activities.

My Business

The project deals with selling farm produce , mostly cereals and vegetables to local community and institutions. Cereals and vegetables form basic food requirement within the community and are highly in demand.
I chose this project because of the availability of land which can be used for the farming project and also ready market for farm produce.
The costs involved purchase of certified seeds, farm yard manure from neighboring community, farm implements and labour costs. Revenue comes from sales of farm produce.
The main aim of this project is to be an income generating activity to support the Daraja CBO which supports Orphans and Vulnerable Children, and promote Youth and Women Empowerment programs in Siaya County, Kenya.

Project Proposal

Daraja Community Organization’s vision is to create a community of economically empowered generation. Currently the Organization is investing in farming activity to help raise funds to support its programs. Once the farming project is well established , there will be a steady source of income for the Organization. In order to have the primary infrastructure for this project, we will continue to seek funds from the Zidisha Community. In this phase of the project we intend to buy more farm tools, variety of seeds including kales, tomatoes and onions.
