Building Resilience Against Climate Extremes (BRACE)

This World Concern project will improve the nutrition status of children under 5 years old, including the training and information of good nutrition practices and food preparation as well as a 3-month food supplement supply to the most vulnerable households. The Government of Kenya declared drought a national disaster on 10 February 2017 and the situation has continued to deteriorate to date. The mid-season assessment and long-rain assessment carried out at the beginning of May and July respectively by National Disaster Management Authority both show a sharp deterioration in the food security of the population and the nutrition status of children. To address the current emergency and build resilience to the affected communities against future droughts, the project will take a multi-faceted approach that includes improved nutrition, provision of cash transfer to procure food, increase income-generating opportunities, build resilience to climate extremes, and spiritual integration and church strengthening.
