A small team from CIM led by the Director Bishop Dr. Titus Masika have just finished their maiden tour to East Pokot in Baringo County. The Pokot community, commonly known for the insecurity and cattle rustling associated with the Pokot culture and lifestyle, had asked the Bishop to visit the area with a view to establishing a Mission Centre geared towards the holistic transformation of the area.
This was after having four groups from the area consisting of area chiefs, Pastors, political leaders, youth and women leaders, elders and representatives from local government visit CIM’s Training and Resource Centre in Yatta . In the engagement, CIM hopes to promote and develop existing lifestyles as well as introduce alternative livelihoods.
The CIM model in Pokot is highly pegged on mindset change and CIM hopes that the model, just like the one in Yatta will be replicated in Baringo and the neighbouring Turkana, West Pokot and Marakwet Counties.
