New paradigm Community Based organization (NPCBO) is a registered organization based in Gita Village Kisumu, Kenya. It is Non- Profit making Community based Organization that harnesses social capital and mobilizes donations from partners and organizes volunteering work towards mitigating the effects of poverty to the widows, orphans and the less fortunate in the community.
Naminieli Obura is the Founder and CEO of the Organization, with a lean team of volunteers consisting of two Administrators,One Chairlady, One Treasurer, One Secretary and other ordinary members. The ordinary members consist of widows and other beneficiaries to the organization, with the widows having a tremendous say on the planning and execution of objectives of the organization.
Working with women, children, Youth and development partners to provide capacity to the less fortunate in the community within Kisumu, its rural environs and even beyond through training, information dissemination, sharing and outreach.
A community in which all women, children and youth are engaged in Education and employment as an imperative to decent life.
The dire situation of the distraught persons in the community within Rural Kenya was the motivation in founding the Organization. One, amongst them was Mama Teresa Wamboga from the Village of Gita, whose condition of being physically challenged got compounded by an unfortunate visitation of poverty and being the caregiver to orphaned grand children in her life. I felt obligated to do anything in my power to improve her condition. That is the reason I established New Paradigm Community Based Organization.
Having to work with limited resources against a heavy demand of the same in the community; managing stigmatization and the weakening inclination when the beneficiaries we support unexpectedly pass on, just to mention a few.
The feeling of fulfilment when sadness transforms into confidence in beneficaries' lives; when orphans being supported through education, become role models in the community and give back to the organization as volunteers.
Afroskop eV offers New Paradigm a platform to trade thoughts, experiences, and challenges. She assists in widening its network with partners and organizations with shared vision and mission.
I envision New Paradigm CBO as a selfless Model Philanthropic Organization that shall achieve improved livelihood in the community, build trust among the members from NPCBO at Gita, Kisumu – Kenya and beyond.
We rise by lifting others
