The foundation of KIHO
We, the founders of KIHO, have already conducted several projects concerning environment, water & sanitation, employment, health and education. Due to our long-term experience and trustful cooperation with the local communities, we are aware of the problems and needs in the Kilimanjaro Region. We founded KIHO in 2010 in order to unite our expertise, experience and network capacity. With KIHO, we created a base for broad and formalized progress in the local communities.
We offer consultancy services and intermediate between citizens and institutions in order to create awareness of possible improvements of the standards of living in the local communities of Kilimanjaro Region. Improvements can be derived from efficiency gains of existing production methods, through creation of new employment opportunities and rendering of social services.
We operate through different approaches and strategies like village meetings, seminars, workshops and study tours. Very important are our regular visits to the various local communities we are working with so that we are able to see the progress, understand the challenges on the ground and provide further advice to the small-holder farmers and livestock-keepers.
By building on unity and solidarity of our members and development partners, and by providing transparent and reliable services, we seek to achieve integrated and sustainable development in Kilimanjaro Region.
