After several months of training - the shepherd children in Baragoi have initiated a poulty project with support from the funds raised through GlobalGiving. The project, which has started with 30 chicken- is projected to grow to 100 chicken by early next year. The children bought each chicken at $5 and convinced one of the parents to provide a traditional Manyatta house where they are rairing the chicken. The children hope to increase their parent's income and help buy school items such as books, from the procees they make from this project.

This project will go along way i  helping curb the rampant insecuty in the Northern Kenya, where bandits and communities continue to fight over livestock. The insecurity has greatly affected education, with many teachers fleeing and students unable to go to school. When the children are able to purchase school items such as books, they will have altrenative education through the shepherd classes, which can be conducted even in their own homes or at a nearby school in the evenings.

Tomatoes from community greenhouse project!

Community Greenhouse
Community Greenhouse

As part of diversitfication of the economic activities in the Samburu region, our organization partnered with local community group to setup a community green house framing project, close to a swamp. The project being implimented by youth and mothers to the shepherd children has seen tomatoes being grown in the greenhouse. The commuity will be selling the tomatoes and earn money that will help to keep the initially shepherd girls in school.

We are also proud that majority of the shepherd children are now being integrated in the formal day time school after the altenative economic activites reduced the community's relialnce on livestock and the need for the children to take care of the livestock.  With these development, we are hoping to fully hand over the project to the communty soon.
