With the help of Maralal Catholic Dioces Peace Program, we offer technical support to the community especially during tribal clashes in the community where children and women are left alone without food, water or houses. We also take clients through counseling especially those who are traumatised and stigmatised from various diseases. We also do volunteer school counseling and reach also to the disabled children in the community.
