Abstract

Development partners in collaboration with other community development stakeholders have taken various initiatives to alleviate problems affecting community members through different interventions at different levels while employing a number of approaches. It is from this reason that I have been motivated to work with an existing organization to offer them with my expertise in Community Economic Development in support of the initiatives already in place for sustainability of the organization. Anti-Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Organization (AADAO) is a community based Organization established in 2011 through the support of United States of America International Development Agency supporting the survivors of alcoholism and drug addiction who were the result of Alcohol Anonymous Group. The initiative went along the popular moto “Chonde chonde ulevi noma” and “Tuko wangapi?” However the organization is facing financial challenges due to lack of capital and financial support to run the organization. This has been the opportunity for the CED student to intervene and work with the community members and the organization to see what can be done using the available resources and knowledge and skills in their environment to generate income. As a result following discussions interviews with key people in the community as well as observation of the environment we managed to come up with an idea to install sugar cane juice processing machine to support the organization generate income as well as encouraging the group members to drink sugar cane juice as an alternative drink instead of alcohol.
