Kisumu Institute of Community Development Training (KICDT) is a Technical Vocational College focused on driving social change for community development founded in the year 2014, Certificate of incorporation No. CPR/2014/168223 and registered as a private Technical Vocational College in accordance with the TVET Act, 2013 Section 20 (1) Reg No. TVETA/PRIVATE/TVC/0259/2016.

The institution’s mechanism is designed to enable qualitative and quantitative improvements in student learning outcomes (i.e. deeper understanding, conceptual development, better application of knowledge to real-world situations). Over the years, KICDT has implanted a Technology-Enabled Learning strategy which has facilitated the institution’s contribution to changing environments in which educational activities can be undertaken to increase flexibility for students in terms of where, when and how they study, the initiative has attracted groups of learners who were rather difficult to reach (i.e. those residing in remote hilly/flood-prone areas).

The institution’s main campus is located in Kisumu County, along the busy Nairobi-Kisumu Road, approximately 10km from Kisumu CBD at Rabuor Centre, next to Rabuor Health Centre and opposite Otieno Oyoo High School with a satellite college being established in Kisii County, Kisii Central at Nyanchwa behind Gusii Stadium opposite Getembe Primary School
