The COPE Mission has always responded to community needs. Relief food has been distributed on many occasions when famine left many people hungry; we hold community meetings to deal with community problems. There are few opportunities for employment for the Pokot who live in the West Pokot area. There are no jobs for the un/under educated. Bringing small development projects to the area goes a long way in improving the economic development.
In 2001, the COPE Board approved hiring a community nurse to care for the school children, employees and those who were sick. A small room was made in the building where the food was stored and that became the COPE Dispensary.
Since that time, the COPE Dispensary has treated thousands of people. more
Rescue House (COPE House)
In 2001, the Executive Director built a home with her own money to have a place to stay when she was in Pokot. She soon found herself taking in a family of children who had nowhere else to go. She now has adopted nearly 30 children who have been orphaned, abandoned or abused. more
