The District Commisioners' Office, the Provincial Administration and the District Officers' office of Kilifi have all been instrumental in helping KISCOL realise some of the Corporate Social Responsibilty that we have initiated in the region.
Our organisation has thus collaborated with the said offices to secure sign posts and upgrading of amenities as part of CSR and also appreciation.
We are looking forward as well towards forging better ties with other agencies in the Coastal Region in order to enhance the life of the residents.
Currently KISCOL is working in Partnership with Kenya Sugar Research Foundation (KESREF) to ascertain the types of sugar cane that would be suitable for production on the Nucleus Estate and outgrowers. It has also donated a motorbike to the Kwale Office to enable their officers reach farmers who are situated where vehicles cannot easily reach.
