DNRC PROGRESS REPORT JUN-AUST 2015 Sept- Nov. 2015

DRYLANDS NATURAL RESOURCES CENTER (DNRC) PROGRESSIVE REPORT FOR SEPT-NOV. 2015
Introduction
Receive much greetings from DNRC family. We want to say thank you so much for your continued support which is enabling us to continue implementing DNRC goal of promoting sustainable development of Natural Resources of the dryland regions of Kenya in order to being improved livelihoods of marginalized communities and people living there. Our model of improving the environment, social welfare and economical empowerment is slowly shaping up as we are getting success stories from our 450 farmers we are working with. Farmers are already getting fruits from the old trees, selling moringa power from moringa leaves, firewood, poles and the microclimate is changing with stories of more rains than before and the region becoming cooler as well.
This quarter we were mainly working on issuing tree seedlings to the farmers to plant because it’s a rainy season. We managed to issue over 50,000 seedlings to the farmers and of different species mainly for fodder, fruits, fuel, timber, conservation and for medicine.
During this 3 months period, the following activities took place.
Tree Nursery
The main activities in our tree nursery were to maintain and issue tree seedlings to the farmers to plant. We issued over 50,000 seedlings to our 450 farmers and six schools we are working with in the area. Farmers have now planted and so far the seedlings are doing great because this time round we have been blessed with good rains.(See attached pictures)


Training/ Outreach program
During the quarter, DNRC staff mainly helped the schools to prepare and plant trees in the compound (establish food forests).This quarter we recruited 3 more schools making a total of 6 schools (4 Primary and 2 Secondary Schools).They were also trained on how to tend and take care of young tree seedlings (see attached pictures)

Other activities
We established swales in DNRC site to harvest rain water for our farms and also for demonstration to the farmers to emulate in their individual farms.( see attached pictures)

Limited water supply during the dry spell

  • Transport of the seedlings for the farmers to their individual farms.
  • Focus For the Next Quarter.
  • End of year get-together with the farmers.
  • Preparing work plans for next year
