ARC-Kenya aims to become an innovative stakeholder in transforming the lives of the less fortunate in order to fight poverty in any form it occurs. We believe in changes, development and improvement through mutual exchange of ideas, inspiration, human resources and experience. Poverty is often a “State of Mind”. Co-operations in changing poverty promoting cultures, traditions and habits are basic values.

ARC-Kenya believes that all human beings share the same intrinsic values and that we all have great possibilities in terms of developing our resources, societies and ourselves. In order to fulfil our potential for creativity and action we need to cooperate, enhance and strengthen understanding and learning between people in the North and the South. ARC-Kenya focuses on social justice, empowerment and economic independence.

ARC-Kenya promotes sharing experiences from our national, political and so cio-cultural contexts, in order to create institutional collaboration and learning processes between our partners, within our organizations, and in our network.
