Healthy institutions help ensure that positive changes are sustained at the end of a development project’s technical support or funding. I Choose Life Africa works with organizations in Kenya and beyond to build their capacity because we know that healthy organizations make up a vibrant civil society that, in turn, help lead a country toward good governance and social transformation.
With improved organizational capacity, these CSOs can play a more strategic role working with the Government of Kenya and other stakeholders to deliver effective health services at the community level. Jireh Management Company offers a solution to this through Capacity building organizations, by mentoring, coaching and training in different aspects such as:
