Working together to empower women in Kenya by putting community ideas into action
Dzarino CBO is a women-led community-based organization based in the Mtwapa area of Kilifi County that provides training and support to the underprivileged members of the rural communities in Kenya.
Dzarino’s work is concentrated in the coastal area of Kenya where it is established and has worked for over 20 years. It has a strong membership base and is currently run by a dedicated core of volunteers, with skills in training, community development, enterprise development, financial management, health care, and the law. In addition to training, Dzarino currently runs an early child development centre and collaborates with the health sector to conduct medical camps thereby bringing primary health care to remote communities.
