Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?
Pastoral Communities Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies is a local NGO registered in Kenya committed to creating a peaceful environment where farmers can live together, nomads can graze together and merchants trade together without the fear of losing their livelihood. We do this through strengthening traditional conflict management systems and putting in place a strong foundation of peace-making structures based on concern for for self and concern for others.
One of the main issues we are addressing is the need for a good water supply. Our project aims to address this need.
What is your project and how will it help?
The project embraces the integrated approach in providing a lasting solution to perpetual dysfunctional conflicts among pastoral communities. We want to provide a quality water supply to the pastoral communities and their livestock, conserve and protect natural resources and diversify livelihood potential. We intend to introduce greenhouse farming and dry season gardening to improve food security. We also want to sink boreholes, de-silt shallow wells and construct dams in order to improve water quantity and quality. We also intend to plant indigenous trees around water catchment areas and erect perimeter fencing to conserve forest land and revive dried streams in the forest.
How can other people partner with you on your project?
