Welcome to Bondo Community Development Network
Bondo Community Development Network is a network of young Kenyans tracing their origin from Bondo District. The Network brings together a group of individuals who are committed to poverty eradication and environmental conservation.
HOW WE WORK
BCDN employs bottom-up development approach. We initiate our projects from the village level to the District level.
Youths are in control of all BCDN’s projects from the villages to the District. At the village level we have youths coming together under Youth Community Developers who are nominated village youth leaders representing all genders. Each village in Bondo District has 1 male and 1 female Youth Community Developers.
From the villages our work progresses to the sub-location level where youths are organized under Youth Ambassadors. We have 2 Youth Ambassadors: 1 male and 1 female per sub-location in Bondo District.
At the District level we have a panel made up of professional advisors, Development Leaders and Youth Ambassadors. It is at this stage that we deliberate on youth ideas, community challenges, unexploited opportunities, practical solutions and design viable projects to respond to poverty and environmental challenges affecting Bondo District.
