Eden Gumbesi is an International Non-Governmental Organization started in 2009 and became legally registered in 2013 under section 10 of the Non-Governmental Organization Coordination Act in Kenya.
The establishment of the Center was in response to devastating Risk behaviours, lack of health services, water and sanitation, health education and information, HIV/AIDS, STI’s, and poverty experienced in the communities in Migori that leads to high rate deaths, Orphans and multitude illiteracy, stigmatization due to these epidemics and school dropout of the needy orphans and Vulnerable and destitute children coming from infected, affected and poor families. The aim was to go give a home for the Orphans and Vulnerable Children and also to tackle the root cause of these epidemic in the area and to find ways of Empowering healthy community and to promote the welfare of the Orphans and Vulnerable Children(OVC) and helping the needy people in the communities in Kenya– both girls and boys – to raise awareness, prevention, and to Empower healthy community and escape illiteracy. Thus we endeavor to begin these programs and projects.
