Mission, vision, priorities
Mission: Providing sustainable solutions for indigenous communities.
Vision: To build a self reliant, enlightened, self sustaining indigenous communities while maintaining their cultural integrity.
Besides the provision of clean water wells in the rural villages affected by the drought for the last 15 yrs, we also plan to build cultural resource centre’s within the communities where poverty and illiteracy is highest.
This curriculum will create awareness on animal husbandry, permaculture / Agri-business, knowledge on locally affordable building materials (Earthships technology), cottage industry empowerment skills and a mother child health clinic.
This project not only goes beyond the provision of basic necessities, but also provides a smooth transition from Traditional herding to a properly laid out Agri-business component that will elevate economic livelihoods and result to poverty eradication in the long run.
The women and children are the most affected according to reality on the ground and well depicted by the recent United Nations survey on infant mortality rates among the pastoral communities in Kenya today, many women, neonates, children, and adolescents continue to suffer or die from conditions, which are preventable or treatable. Access to quality health services still remains a challenge across all levels of care.
How this works.
1.Connecting farmers to local and international markets.
2.Providing affordable, accessible transport services for livestock and farm produce to the main market place.
3.Providing clean sustainable water through bore holes and rainwater catchment facilities across the affected communities.
4.Putting in place learning centres for local communities to gain first hand skills on Agriculture and Animal husbandry.
5. Providing micro-financial support for women and youth societies.
