SELF-HELP GROUPS

We encourage women and youths to engage in agriculture through Self-help group providing them with access to finances. We mentor and train them on good agricultural practices, farming calendars, exposure tours and how to market their produce, and later link them with the Ministry of Agriculture for support to boost the quality of their farm productivity and to expand their farming activities.

ANIMAL IMPROVEMENT

Democracy & Animal Improvement (Health and yield maximization) – Diseases that affect cattle, sheep, goats and camels are endemic in the regions of Baringo, West-Pokot, Samburu, Turkana, Laikipia and parts of North Eastern Kenya and are a key constraint to livestock production. This disease challenge is compounded by the region’s poor road and telecommunications infrastructure, which in the past hampered the timely detection and reporting of livestock diseases.

CLIMATE CHANGE & FOOD SECURITY

Governments and all stakeholders need to build a coalition of support for pastoralists to tap their potential for economic development. Private and governmental underinvestment in pastoralist communities have contributed to the extreme levels of food insecurity. We aim to enhance climate and risk informed planning in the water and agricultural sectors through improved climate information and cross sectoral coordination. Our approach  is through conservation, sustainable management and restoration of the forests in Samburu and Baringo Counties i.e by (i) providing climate-resilient green infrastructure that enhances soil water storage, fodder availability and water for livestock; and (ii) developing alternative livelihoods which value is derived from the conservation and maintenance of these local forest and savannah ecosystems (e.g. timber and non-timber forest products & eco-tourism).
