Having served this organisation for over twenty years,the organisation is unique in many ways,two of them being going to places where other NGOs fear to work in,secondly approach to the communities.
While others dictate to the communities what the projects to offer,Amref gives propriety to the communities to choose the projects they want implemented according to their needs..
What Amref implements is community owned so that during exit,the project remains in safe hands.
In short,the slogan of OUT OF SIGHT,OUT OF MIND does not apply to Amref and communities initiated projects .
