(ISID) Indigenous Strategy and Institution for Development is a community development organisation. ISID was initially established as a Community Based Organisation (CBO) in 2000 and later registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) with the NGOs Coordination Board of Kenya in 2010.
As an organisation, we derive our energy, identity and vision from our name that encompasses indigenous knowledge and institutions as the basis of fostering sustainable development in Northern Kenya.
ISID currently works with marginalized and minority communities in Marsabit and Isiolo counties in Northern Kenya. We have operational field offices in Moyale and Isiolo towns, from where we engage with communities and link them to development partners, research institutions and government services.
