History of KIRUCODO

Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization started by a small group of rural people who were then running small income generating activities (SIGA) so as to earn daily income for self sustainability within Kikandwa Village Local Council-1, an area with devastating social and economic implications include but not limited to lower literacy level, lower employment rate, poor hygienic conditions, increasing poverty, lack of healthy care centers, women and children human rights abuses, and many others.
Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organisation was formed on 6th July 2000.

No. S. 5914/6476) was granted to the group under the names of Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization. On 9th July 2009 the Organization got incorporated as a company Limited by Guarantee.
