It is clearly evident that despite the progresses made in Ukambani following the implementation of devolution, the economic status of the Kamba Nation still requires significant improvement. This needs to begin with a concerted focusing on improving the quality of life of the most marginalized in the region. Water, Education and economic development are the three priority areas of focus in that regard for Mbaitu Foundation. At Mbaitu Foundation, we believe that by coming together, we can begin to make a dent on the root causes that hold our people back as exemplified in the popular Kamba saying, “Kyaa kimwe kiyuaa ndaa” (a single finger, cannot kill a tick). Mbaitu Foundation believes that ending poverty will require the collective coming together of every member of the Kamba Nation. By coming together, we will leave a legacy and set future generations on a better path for generations to come.
Through Mbaitu Foundation, Kamba’s in the Diaspora will have a unique platform through which they can mobilize and channel resources to Ukambani in a focused, organized, collective, and transparent manner. The objective is to share our experiences and resources (both economic and talent-wise) so as to help our brothers and sisters in Ukambani. The strategic approach right now is bringing like-minded stakeholders together to help mobilize the resources required to foster the economy of the greater Kamba nation together. With proper economic empowerment, and supporting relevant self-help groups, we at Mbaitu Foundation are confident that the people of Ukambani have a very bright future ahead.
