Empowering Samburu Youth

Lark and School
Lark and School

We are so excited to report that a full week of rain recently fell here in Samburu County; the most in over two years!  It was a celebratory time seeing the wild grasses and foliage lush and green.  Although it is once again parched, we are left with the optimistic reminder of how quickly these landscapes can recuperate.  It continues to be the worst drought and food crisis in Kenya’s recent history.  We at Sadhana Forest Kenya (SFK) continue planting and caring for drought-resistant food-bearing trees because little by little, tree by tree, we are helping regenerate Earth and establish long term food security in Samburu, Kenya.

During March and April (local students’ time off between academic levels) three different school groups came to stay at SFK for two-week work experience programs.  There were 20 students in each mixed-gender group; two secondary school groups and one of recent high school graduates.  Every student received training in Permaculture and dryland tree-planting techniques.  Subsequently, they put their newly acquired skills into practice on projects at the SFK Community Agro-Forestry Learning Centre as well as out in the Samburu community.  These keen young people had a great time while learning, gaining work experience, and participating hands-on in environmental conservation and food security projects.  Hosting such programs nurtures the meaningful relationship between SFK and the youth of Samburu.  This up-and-coming generation is empowered to move towards their future knowing that they determine the sustainability of their livelihoods.

It brings us great joy to let you know SFK continues to be a haven for Kenyan animals during these times of drought.  The elephants have stayed close and even welcomed a number of newborns into the world!  Birds, antelopes, a variety of small mammals, and even a leopard have been spotted nearby.  We are honored to have this motley of wildlife grace us with their company.

This crucial work is made possible with the support of volunteers, donors, and GlobalGiving; thank you all!  If you would like to provide feedback, learn more about our projects, or if you are interested in volunteering with us, please email us at kenya@sadhanaforest.org.  There is also an opportunity to leave a note at the end of this report.
