Challenge

Kenya faces severe drought due to climate change now a national disaster. The need to protect planets natural resources, its biodiversity, spreading environmental justice and raising awareness is eminent. Number of those affected has actually doubled from 1.3M to 2.6M. Two consecutive rainfall failures and the effects are huge with regard to widespread crop failure, acute water shortage, Food Insecurity & 80% of the livestock perished. Exhausting peoples capacity to cope making them vulnerable.

Solution

HODI is currently working with 152 villages in four sub counties of Marsabit. Provision of water was crucial and HODI supported some of the villages with water tanks. The families coping capacities are low . There is a dire need to upscale existing programs and provision of food/non-food items to 1,000 Households. Scaling of HODI Resilience Model in the targeted villages in 2020 while protecting the planets resources, its biodiversity, environmental justice & raising awareness on climate change.
