Main Strategies

  1. CRIDEF has an established grass roots cluster based structure. These are self-help community groups composed of 30-60 OVC households; the largest number in each cluster being women.
  2. CRIDEF staff and community based trainers provide trainings, support supervision, and monitoring support to the cluster.
  • CRIDEF identifies Community based trainers (CBT’s) at sub-county level, trains them and provides them with community necessary facilitation. The key role of the CBT’s is to monitor, train and provide support supervision to the clusters. The CBT’s are residents of the selected sub-counties and therefore they are a continuous source of support to the community
