Khalaba Community Development Group is a community-based organization located in Mumias district in the Western Province of Kenya. The group was formed with the aim of improving the educational standards of the orphans and vulnerable children within the Khalaba community and its environs, so that they will be able to take care of themselves. The group is running a local orphanage school, which is visited by 10 orphans and 16 widows. The orphans and widows are being supported through the sales of maize produced from their small farm. This caters for the orphans’ basic needs i.e. food, clothing and shelter. The widows also get support from various groups under the Khalaba Community Development Group. The main purpose of the group is to mobilize the community and self-help groups to participate in grassroots efforts in poverty eradication.
