CURRENT DROUGHT UPDATE

The National Drought Management Authority states in their October 2022 drought bulletin that distribution of the October rains was poor both temporally and spatially across most parts of the County. 

 

The Ministry of Education requested for support from HODI for 4 schools which were severely affected by water shortage. The 4 schools received 52,000L of water in total, each receiving 13,000L per school. The schools have now been able to retain their students in school through provision of lunch.

 

BUILDING RESILIENT HOUSEHOLDS

With immense support from Corteva through GlobalGiving, we have been able to support 93 women in 4 women groups, jointly called the Qusanno Groups. Qusanno is a local word which means saving together.

 

These women saved 93,900 shillings together over the months of October and November 2022. These funds are then deposited into an already existing pool from which each group’s members borrow loans to start or strengthen their small businesses, pay fees and medical bills. 

 

With the donations received from Corteva and GlobalGiving, the groups have been able to plan and implement an audit of their finances through an external auditor. The audit is expected to provide a summary of each group’s finances and recommendations for any major weaknesses found during the course of the audit. 

 

The audit will also provide accurate information on savings, loans and active membership status for each group. With lessons learned from these women, we hope to expand this initiative to other community members as a way of helping them to build sustainable and resilient communities.

 

We would like to thank you for your great support this year, and look forward to a properous new year wiith you. We wish you all Happy Holidays!
