One Village Transformed (OVT) - Samburu

Drought has become more frequent and severe in Samburu County, like others in Northern Kenya. This leads to a loss of pasture, scarcity of water and loss of both livestock and in extreme cases death of people. Through this project, World Concern aims to increase income-generating opportunities and build residents' resilience to climate extremes. Such efforts include the promotion of savings and credit associations, poultry keeping and disaster risk reduction. As part of the project, we will also increase household and community access to clean, safe water and hygiene and sanitation. Among others, this should improve the nutrition status for children under five years old. And finally, we aim to enhance the capacity of the community to carry its own holistic decree.
