Who we are
Save Lives International (SALIIN) is a development and relief organisation that empowers marginalized communities through sustainable community-driven development interventions
SALIIN was founded in 2015 by local scholars and development practitioners who were concerned about the huge and widening humanitarian needs, deepening vulnerabilities and huge development gap in its target region. Registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation in Kenya, the organisation’s ‘theory of change’ is anchored on working with our target communities to identify challenges, design interventions and mobilise resources to address them.
