2018 in Review

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Once again, we are delighted to share with you some of the remarkable testimonies and stories from our engagements with communities across the country. In the year 2018, our focus was more defined and driven by the need to bring about transformation in the lives of people. As we share the gospel of Christ with Kenyans, we have always anchored social ministry at the centre of the very same gospel we share. With this in mind, we hold a wholesome mission key to a wholesome Nation. ADS remains committed to living out the words of John 10:10 ‘’I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.’’ The year was one with a mix of both challenges and opportunities for our people. At the beginning of the year, we witnessed continued political exchanges between the leading political parties in the Country. The precipitant 2017 presidential polls had not been conclusively brought to a close and this posed a challenge to the stability and national cohesion of the Nation. On March 9th, however, the country’s top politicians came together and by the now famous handshake, vowed to lead the country in solving some of the issues that have been holding the country back over the years. With as much optimism as pessimism, various quarters of the populace embraced the promise of a better Country. What followed has been a sustained effort by the leaders to fight corruption, poverty and marginalization. This was also aimed at supporting the president’s Big 4 agenda which he hopes to deliver by the end of his term. With the favorable atmosphere for such Development, the Anglican Church continued to compliment Government efforts in providing basic services and bringing about Transformation among communities. From areas of Health, water and sanitation, Food security, Disaster Risk reduction, Climate change mitigation, environmental conservation, Education, peace, good governance, institutional strengthening and emergency response among others, ACK

has been on the forefront in ensuring that the desire for dignified living is achieved. Following the biblical Concept of Human development, we seek to fight the problems that affect Kenyans in the context that we live in. Through partnerships with other organizations which have graciously committed resources to this great course we have collectively brought about transformative changes to the lives of over 3,000,000 people directly and indirectly. Our total budget was Ksh. 1,248,454,316.97 and we prudently expended the same by investing in projects that will continue to uplift Communities. Through our various Anglican Development services regions, our staff establishment stood at 544 in 2018 a slight drop from 586 in 2017. A look at our impressive gender balance within our workforce points to a deliberate exertion that both male and female must be given equal opportunities in service to mankind. Internally, through support of our partner Bread for the World, we were able to invest in an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software whose strategic intent is to improve on our effectiveness and efficiency as an organization. Notably, the ACK theme for the Year ‘wholesome Governance’ was blended into our programs as a guiding principle in our operations. As a church institution, we continued to explore on how best we could provide a leadership model that could be emulated by the society and the nation. Through ADS Kenya, the church organized a conference on Theology and Philosophy of Development that sought to assist the Anglican Church review its strategic framework in development. We must however observe that development is a continuous process that is sustained by the commitment to overcome obstacles that may pose in our way. Poor governance continues to hinder our efforts in advocating for accountability among the leadership of the country. A robust human rights environment is fanned by a governance structure that engages the citizens in its activities. Without such architect, the system is such that the elite benefits as the common ‘Mwananchi’ suffers. As a church we continue to rally the nation to support such noble courses iii.

as those that promote justice in all fronts of life. We must however observe that development is a continuous process that is sustained by the commitment to overcome obstacles that may pose in our way. The health sector also reported tremendous growth and relative calm as compared to the preceding year. ADS with support of partners we supplied medicines and other supplies worth over 10million to 11 health facilities country wide. The country’s leadership led by the President launched the Universal Health Coverage program which seeks to ensure that all Kenyans can access quality and affordable healthcare. This signified a step in the right direction and as a church we continue to support this noble initiative by the government. Under institutional strengthening many communities and church leaders were trained in corporate governance, truth centered transformation, financial management and economic empowerment. We wish to extend our gratitude to all our partners and people who have walked with us in this journey and your generosity. Through your support, we have made an indelible mark in the communities we work in. We have transformed the mindsets of many people and brought them onboard in the fight against poverty. We continue to invest in new technologies and system that ensure we uphold the highest standards of accountability and effectiveness in program design and execution. We hope you will be encouraged by the 2018 Annual Report. Once Again, Thank You.

ADS Kenya 1

ADS Kenya acts as the National Coordinating office of all the ADS regions across the country. While providing leadership and strategic direction at this level, we endeavor to ensure that our work is more impactful to the lives of the beneficiaries. This is in line with the strategic advancement of the Ministry of the Anglican Church in Kenya. We support the Provincial office of the Anglican Church in Kenya especially in building institutional capacities of our sister entities. This is aimed at embracing a more proactive approach to the challenges that affect Kenyans today. By continously attuning ourselves with the trends in development, we create partnerships that help us in achieving our goals. In 2018, we were able to roll out several projects in the communities. These were in the extractive sector, Capacity development in the area of management, Environmental Conservation, Disaster Risk reduction, Humanitarian Support to communities affected by natural calamities, and advocating for accountability and good Governance 2

c. Good Governance * The Anglican Church of Kenya has continued to advocate for good Governace, Accountability and National Cohesion across the country. The culmination of these sustained efforts was the now Famous Handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposistion leader Raila Odinga. The two had for a long time been engaged in a political duel that threatened the peace of the country.

d. Institutional strengthening and Capacity Development For effectiveness and enhanced service delivery, ADS has over the past one year supported various Dioceses, regions and other community Members in capacity building. This was done through: * Strategic Management Trainings for Bishops and Clergy in the Dioceses of Mombasa, Embu, Nambale, Nairobi and Machakos. The process led to the development of strategic plans for the Dioceses of Nambale, Mombasa and the Mombasa Memorial Cathedral. * ADS Kenya trained the Board and staff of ADS Eastern on Strategic management. * In partnership with World renew, ADS Kenya organized a Truth Centered Transformation (TCT) Training for ACK Bishops from across the country. * In April, ADS Kenya supported a training for ACK Bishops on National healing.

*In the quest to increase awareness on the rights of artisan min-

ers in the Pwani region, ADS Kenya facilitated a series of public forums in Taita Taveta with leaders of Artisanal Miners Association and Community Based Organizations (CBOs) with the aim of identifying some of the key issues for joint advocacy in the extractives sector. The participants agreed to form a platform for this course and called it Taita Taveta Civil Society Organizations (CSO)s Mining Platform. *ADS also organized an exposure visit for clergy who are Social Justice Ambassadors from the Taita Taveta Diocese to Tanzania. The 14 -member delegation was led by the Diocesan Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Liverson Mng’onda. *ADS participated in the Haki Madini network to review the Africa Mining Vision with intentions to domesticate it. 3

* ADS also organized the Theology and Phylosophy of Develop- f. Humanitarian Support *

ment Conference in July with the aim of reviewing the Church’s engagement in terms development. ADS Kenya also kick-Started the implementation of the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system which is expected to enhance the effectiveness in management within the ADS and ACK affiliated institution across the Country.

In 2018, during the Long rains, some parts of the country experienced flooding. This caused displacement and in more severe instances loss of life and property. Some of the areas that were affected by the floods were Nyanza, Nakuru, Tana River and Coastal areas. ADS Kenya, joined the first responders such as the Kenya Red Cross Society and ACT Alliance in offering support in the following ways. * Distributing food items, clothings and kitchen sets to the affected households in Nyanza (Ahero) and Nakuru (Solai). * Distribution of iron sheets, Roofing washers and Nails to 37 households. * Evacuation of the affected households to safer and raised areas like nearby Schools and Churches. g.

Mrs. Judith Akinyi Oluoch

has been engaging in small scale farming for over 7 years since she lost her husband. Farming provides her family of 5 with food and income. However, growing maize year in year out is not able to sustain her family in terms of food and other basic needs e.g balance food, better housing, school fees and medical services. Thinking about the future of her family she could not help but despair as the future looked bleak. Together with others, they got information on the Integrated Economic Empowerment Project and they opted to join at the end of 2015. In 2016, they got into the project with trainings that have enhanced productivity of her farm. From harvesting 3 bags of maize per year, now she harvested 4 bags in the first season with bananas showing evidence of bountiful harvest. She quips, “This year has been very dry but, my farm will give better yields. This project has made me see the future being bright again and am very thankful as I will get enough food and money as I provide extension support to other farmers”.

b. Economic Empowerment * Formation of Community Savings’ Groups. * Development of Market system for targeted Value Chains. * Piloting of Village Banks. * Facilitation of Micro-Credit Access. * Establishment of Baking Businesses using Vitamin A rich *

droughts from time to time. It is characterized by extreme rainfall variability. Makueni County passed County Climate Change Fund (CCCF) Regulations in September, 2015, being the first County to have a legal document on climate change work in Kenya. The legal framework has enabled the County to access a seed money by DFID-UK through Christian Aid and ADSE for Climate Change adaptation and Resilience. The Structures created under the policy are Six Ward Climate Change Planning Committees, a County Climate Change Planning Committee, a County Climate Change Fund Board (CCCFB) and a County Climate Change Steering Committee (CCCTC). The structures have both state and non – state actors for control e.g. the CCCF Board is chaired by a non- state actor. These make decisions right from the ward committees on the use of climate change fund for increased ownership and accountability. The CCCF guide climate change operations within the county and many actors have a reliable structure to mobilize and utilize resources effectively and efficiently. The County agent in the project is Anglican Development Services. Through partnership with the County Goverment of Makueni and the Kenya Metrological Services nine projects were done to completion as per the prioritization by the community through participatory Vulnerability Capacity Assessment (PVCA). These include two Earth dams, five Sand dams, one Rock Catchment and one water pipeline distribution. These have reduced distances to water sources, the cost of water and available water for household use and micro irrigation. Hygiene and sanitation has also improved since the latrines and bathrooms have been constructed at the water structures sites. In addition, eight hundred and 601 Climate Information Intermediaries were trained to receive, interpret and disseminate climate information across the communities for timely decision making. This has led to reduced agricultural loses and informed decision making on farm enterprises.

The Arid and Semi-Arid Lands Agricultural Productivity Research Project (APRP) is an initiative by KALRO/EU and ADS-MK to Upscale the uptake of Improved indigenous Chicken research Outputs undertaken by KALRO in Naivasha and make the technology available to farmers in ASAL areas. Currently, targeting Central, Lower Eastern and Coast Regions. The overall goal of the project is to sustainably increase productivity of the indigenous chicken production systems in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) thus improving the livelihoods of the target communities Through income and nutrition security. The Project raises farmers’ awareness on bio-security, improved poultry management practices and promoting multiplication of day-old chicks to supplement the KALRO production of quality day old chicks in Naivasha. It works through a commercial model by training various actors in the value chain. The project identified and trained lead farmers to facilitate the multiplication and supply of improved KALRO indigenous chicken breed to a number of secondary farmers who brood and sell them as one month or rear them and sell at six months. Through the model 81,700 KALRO day old chicks were accessed by a total of 2,700 farmers (645 Male,1905)

Health and Livelihoods Improvement Project is being implemented in Kajiado West Sub County, Kajiado County since 2013. It covers two locations, namely Oloirien and Olochoronyorri. The area is cosmopolitan with the Maasai community being the majority. The project focuses on Food Security, Health and Water Sanitation and Hygiene. lt targets a thousand households. The Project works with men, women, youth, children and people living with disability. The Project has trained community volunteers who train the community at the grassroots. The trained volunteers include 35 Community Resource persons (CORPS) for food security, 10 Community health Volunteers (CHVs) 16 Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction Volunteers (CMDRRVS), 15 Community Development Committees (CDCS) and 8 Village Savings and Loans Volunteers. The volunteers are the model farmers. The Project is implemented with the support from Australian Aid and Transform Aid International of Australia.

The Murang’a Agricultural and Livelihoods Improvement (MALI) ProjectProject is a proponent for Conservation Agriculture (CA) in Murang’a County implemented in three Sub Counties namely Gatanga, Makuyu and Kiharu. Conservation Agriculture has been implemented in the County for 2 years with the support of Global Affairs Canada, CFGB and World Renew. 3106 (674M, 2432F) farmers have been reached in CA cumulatively to date. The target was 3000 farmers but the target has now been surpassed. CA is a strategy that is geared towards strengthening farmers’ resilience against adverse effects of climate change. Moreover, it is an effective technology that aid in rejuvenation of infertile soils. There are three principles underlying CA are: * Permanent soil cover: Dry mulch is applied on the soil surface to retain soil moisture and add vital biomass to the soil. * Minimum soil disturbance: Slashing is encouraged during land preparation: Use of planting holes is used when planting. Hand pulling or scrapping is used to control weeds. * Crop Association: This involves inter cropping and crop rotation, done with the aim of improving soil fertility by including leguminous crops as inter crops or in the rotation plan.
