KAMAG Foundation is primarily about the development of women, children and the youth especially in the rural areas in our communities to address some of the social in-balances that exist among many communities through community participatory approach techniques.
     KAMAG Foundation is to improve the wellbeing of the deprived youth, women and their children who are more vulnerable in our society as regards to their rights, dignity and independence.
     There has been global concern for the ever-increasing rate of cervical cancer, HIV and TB, people with disabilities, maternal health, malaria, adolescent reproductive health and social wellbeing, others continue to struggle at the background without any breakthrough. the main reason for disease and poverty and social in-balances have been researched and documented. However, there are indications of high ignorance because most communities are not adequately educated on their roles and the part of their contribution to social development - gender inequalities cannot be excluded in the slow development of most rural communities.
     KAMAG Foundation believes that, through sensitization research, training, effective mobilization strategies, quality care and education and community participatory techniques most of the inequalities can be addressed. It is against this background that KAMAG FOUNDATION has been established.
