Creating Decent Employment Opportunities for youth and women (CREDEE) is a 2 years DfID funded project under the Small Charity Challenge Fund (SCCF) that creates the condition necessary to expand faming opportunities and “pull” partnerships towards market value chains. The project implemented by Riana Development Network (RDN) in 4 locations in Western Kenya, targets most vulnerable populations such as women and youth. CREDEE program operates in East, Central and South Kabuoch in Homabay County, Western Kenya. Western Kenya has become increasingly in need of humanitarian intervention following unpredictable climate patters, violence and political unrest following disputed presidential elections and lack of political good will from elected leaders. CREDEE program seeks to introduce opportunities to lift vulnerable families and help those who’ve encountered losses with ways to rebuild their lives. Under the leadership of Country Director, Joshua Odhiambo, the program offers a variety of trainings opportunities, financing, market linkages and community
