C.I.V.S COMMUNITY SERVICE – KENYA

Created in 1997, the Center for International Voluntary Service Community (CIVS) is committed
to the poorest communities in Kenya.
In Kenya, half of the population lives under the poverty threshold.
3 girls out of 10 do not go to school and many are victims of female genital mutilation.
In the Nyanza province, one of the poorest in the country, the systematic exclusion of girls due to
ancestral customs violates their dignity.
