Christian Impact Mission (CIM) is a Non- Political, Non-denominational, Non-governmental development agency that has continuously sought to develop Models and Training tools for Community Transformation. CIM primarily operates as an outreach to communities seeking to develop sustainable community transformation movements. CIM has thus developed, tested and implemented a Transformation Model that integrates the Empowered Worldview and Economic Empowerment programs through a mindset change approach.
CIM has developed a 10 point community transformation model integrating the Empowered worldview and economic empowerment programs. This model was first launched in Makutano- Yatta, a community in the semi arid part of Machakos county in Eastern Kenya. The initiative has sought to combat the existing challenges brought about by the constant drought and famine experienced in the area and associated with climate change and other socio-cultural dynamics.
The success evidenced by the transformation of the community in Yatta has seen CIM replicating the model in all over East Africa in partnership with different NGOs, Churches and Government institutions, Central and County governments in what is seen as a paradigm shift in the approach towards development.
The CIM curriculum focuses on a holistic approach to addressing systematic challenges through systematic value chains which include a mentoring program to ensure maximum adaptation.
