The Anglican Development Services

The Anglican Development Services – Central Rift (ADS – Central Rift) is a Church based development institution that has been engaged in undertaking community development programs since 1961. It is an affiliate organization of the four dioceses of Nakuru, Baringo, Maralal and Nyahururu of the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK). It is the development arm of the four dioceses. 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.
