| The Mission of Learning Development Kenya
LDK is a national non-governmental and non-sectarian development
organization founded in June, 1998. Its mission is to respond
to the needs of communities and its children, with a primary
objective of improving the quality of life of those in need,
as defined with words such as extreme poverty, destitution,
oppression, deprivation and austerity.
The following principles underlie the work of Learning and
Development Kenya within its defined area of operation:
- Involvement in the educational attainment of children
from very poor communities (especially girls) to ensure
an equitable and quality education for all children;
- To expedite the pace for social and economic change that
reinforces Kenya's investment in national information and
communications technology (ICT) that can offer unprecedented
opportunity for small business development in both urban
and rural regions;
- Commitment to work with those who are vulnerable and marginalized
by the devastating impact of AIDS;
- The recognition of the need to subject all aspects of
LDK's programs to gender analysis aimed at protecting
and promoting the interests of women;
- The promotion of accountability and social organization
as a means to encourage the strengthening of institutions
involved in family and community development;
- The development of major long term projects which take
a proactive approach in providing the most promising opportunity
to positively impact society.
