Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Giving Pastoralists A Chance To Live Like Others In Less Arid Areas.

The Drylands initiative has come out to help problems which affect most pastoralists in East African drylands.These areas is where rain falls,it's so meagre as to be functionally meaningless or so powerful that it carries everything with it. The little water available in these lands is saline,black or unhygienic,forcing its neglected residents to travel several kilometres daily in search of commodity,food and pasture for their animals.The Drylands initiative has been improving the lives of pastrolists through engaging in projects that boost animal production,infrustructure,health,education,and business.
