Local Organizations Institutional Strenthening Program

In the year 2012, Fanikisha, a project of MSH, RATN, PACT and DANYA with funding from USAID, supported 10 CSOs in strengthening their institutional capacities. As a result of the process, Local organizations in Kenya came together to form the Local Organizations Institutional Strengthening Network (LOISNET). LOISNET acts as a channel and ideal partner for both donor organizations and the government to support development processes in Kenya through shaping and providing development framework and strengthening local organizations.
