Who We Are

Welcome to ADS Central Rift

The Anglican Development Service – Central Rift (ADS – Central Rift) is a Church based development institution that has been engaged in undertaking community development programs since 1961. ADS Central Rift was registered as development-oriented Limited Company by Guarantee in 1998 in accordance with the Laws of Kenya.  It was registered under the name Nakuru Region Inter-Diocesan Christian Community Services (NRIDCCS). After rigorous discussions and deliberations, the Anglican Church in 2012 decided to re-brand her development structure to a more unified National outlook under the name ADS Kenya. 

All the Regions eventually adopted the name ADS to mark a new beginning.  As a result, ADS – Central Rift was born.  ADS – Central Rift envisages transformed communities enjoying sustainable livelihoods. The organization has a mission to improve the livelihoods of marginalized communities in Central Rift through integrated development programs and relief.   ADS Central Rift operates within a dynamic environment that is characterized by Cultural, political and economic diversity.
