Community Initiatives for Rural Development (CIFORD Kenya) is a community based organisation working in Meru County Kenya. The organisation was formed in July 2002 and registered with the Ministry of Culture, Social services and National heritage. The community based organisation was formed to tackle socio-economical problems facing the residents of the district with more focus to the issues of women and girls where women have been involved in the sustainable agriculture activities and the environmental conservation. They are also participating in the women rights and property ownership for women as they are trained on how best to care for their families and especially husbands and children. Girls are encouraged to remain in school and they are taken through a training package on alternative rite of passage in campaign against Female circumcision.
