Caritas Homa Bay

"We Care and Empower"

CARITAS Homa Bay is a Development wing of the Catholic Diocese of Homa Bay. It coordinates all the diocesan socio-economic programs.

Our approach aims at encouraging the peoples’ establishments so that they are empowered to take charge of their own development initiatives.

Our Strategic Direction

"...navigate the daunting tasks of dealing with the problem of growing community needs versus the 'small envelope', strengthening of stakeholder relations for greater support, finding solutions to the deteriorating livelihoods, engaging local partners to mitigate poor sanitation / health standards, training local population on business skills and providing support to persons with disabilities."

Our Vision

To be a community Empowered Through Holistic Development.

Our Mission Statement

We transform Communities Through Socio-Economic Enterventions.


CARITAS Homa Bay initiates projects that improve livelihood. It focuses on holistic development of the entire community with special emphasis on the poor. We undertake developments along the community needs rather than the needs of development programs.

In partnership with donor agents and our good partners, CARITAS has made commendable progress with the limited available resources.

Our major donors include; USAID, CRS, PATH, and CAFORD.

Our programs include:

  1. Agriculture and Environment
  2. Micro Enterprise development
  3. Primary Health Care
  4. Justice and Peace
  5. Education
  6. Water and Sanitation

Appeal for Aid

Although these programs have recorded significant achievements, the community needs are far from being met.


Caritas Homa bay is an equal opportunity employer.
