She works with her team of Mr. Joseph Mwenda as the Assistant Country Director, Mr. Geoffrey Rotich, the Programmes Officer, Ms Eunice Nyambura, the Administration and Finance Assistant and Mr. Charles Nyamu as the Liaison Officer.


AICAD’s main objective is poverty alleviation, by building the local capacities of the beneficiaries to solve their problems.

The partner public universities in Kenya include; JKUAT, Egerton University, Kenyatta University, Moi University, Maseno University, MMUST and University of Nairobi. During its earlier years and with the generous support of JICA, AICAD played useful roles in supporting young institutions, individual researchers (through graduate student’s research) and communities as part of capacity building strategy. Apart from Research and Development, KCO has carried out most its activities under Training and Extension (T&E) division .Under Information Networking Documentation and Marketing division (IND&M), KCO has continued sharing human promising stories arising from the trainings conducted through the annual reports, mainstream media, Egerton University newslink and other channels.
