Christian Mission for Development (CMD) is a registered non-profit, non-governmental, multi-sectoral relief and development organization dedicated to fighting poverty and injustices to reduce human suffering and enhances communities’ livelihoods. CMD was established in 2005 and has been in operations, mitigating suffering through provision of lifesaving assistance and essential social services to most vulnerable communities focusing especially on women, children and youth initiatives.
Over the past years, CMD works to equip people with skills, knowledge and helps communities rebuild their livelihoods through resilience building programs in collaboration with other stakeholders to become self-sufficient, and to increase pools of capable community facilitators to transform communities out of extreme poverty, hunger, illiteracy and diseases, and to improve social amenities, welfare and economic livelihoods of the society.
CMD has established strong organizational policies and management standards, these include a state-of-the-art human resource, financial and procurement management policies that are continuously reviewed with active participation and inputs of staffs, beneficiaries, experts and donors. Staffs have opportunities for furthering their careers through both in-house trainings and sponsorship abroad that equip them with the necessary expertise and skills to deliver on their mandate.
Since then, the organization has increased its capability with an increase in staff, partners and volunteers to match the increase in its programs and projects as it spreads widely to different parts of East Africa. With this, CMD activities have attracted several partnerships with both Local, regional and international relief and development actors, Government line ministries, institutions and individuals with whom we share common goals. Today, CMD serves over “500,000 people” a year!
