  • The 400 participants are taking part in twice-a-week football hour days and a twice-a-month school league.

Building Resilient Households

12 village group leaders were trained on group dynamics to enhance their capacity in the management of group affairs.The workshop was co-facilitated by the social service department of the national government to provide an opportunity to learn about legal requirements.

4 women groups have successfully completed filing their annual tax returns as required by regulations, and have also filed quarterly progress reports with the regulator.

Peacebuilding

As part of peacebuilding and development work in Moyale, the following results have been achieved:

  • 21 community volunteers have successfully been recruited and trained to support peacedbuilding and development work in their communities.
  • HODI has supported the production of the Marsabit County Peace Policy and Bill which is now ready for adoption by the County government of Marsabit.
  • 11 communities in Moyale have designed and validated action plans to address vulnerabilities in the communities.
  • HODI facilitated 2 cross border peace meetings that were held in Moyale to bring communities from both sides of the border together. The communities and governments resolved to work hand in hand to ensure peace is susitained.
  • HODI also facilitated 2 further cross border meetings between communities living in Dukana (Kenya) and Dillo (Ethiopia) to ensure that conflict does not spill over due to killings and loss of livestock in July 2023. On September 23, the communities resolved during the 4th peace meeting to pay blood money for the killing of one boy after suspects were arrested, and to return 140 goats and sheep that were missing after the clashes.
