Amid all this the importance of food security at household level cannot be measured and the kitchen gardens have helped most housholds not to go hungry. As HODI we are currently working with 20 more villages to upscale the practice and as one mother narrated. At times all you need is to be shown what to do and they can do do it on their own. Mama Amina, was never trained as she saw other women doing it then she started her own garden. As the rest of the areas was dry and just shelled off her garden was green with vegetables. The rainfall received in Marsabit central amounted to 7.5 mm. Drought has started to kick in and at a slow pace and already the response interventions were launched with several activities ongoing to cushion vulnerable households.
This is just the begining and as we approach 2015 we plan to set up 1000 shamba HODI's in Marsabit Central and our target is to train 200 women leaders from the villages to train 50 women each. We are grateful for teh support we received through your donations and we will provide an update on the progress of our project.
It has started raining and its time now to harvest some rain water for the dry season and planting of 1000 Shamba HODI's.
