We believe an empowered leader possesses qualities that sees subjects thrive towards the goal.

Honesty and integrity are key quality of a leader.
This program seeks to empower the community to make right and wise choices regarding their livelihoods and environment and act upon them. Empowerment emanates from personal actions, initiatives and relationships with like-minded individuals prompted by the desire to overcome structural and social obstacles including lack of education and communication skills. Empowerment also arises from individual or self motivation, recognition of other people’s potential and knowledge and adoption of joint approach to confront challenges that hinder progress. Community members address their problems through having in place capable leadership which has ability to frame issues and design course of action effectively. RICED envisions communities that have self-confidence, security, and commitment to self-improvement both socially and economically. Trust built over time by our leaders gives subject motivation for self-exploit.
RICED Kenya collaborates with national and county governments, and other likeminded CBOs, NGOs, and individuals in empowering our community and youths.
