Challenge

Baringo County fall under arid and semi-arid lands which face regular and prolonged droughts every year. During these periods, people (especially children) suffer from acute starvation, cases of hunger related mortalities are reported, children skip school, animals which are their main source of livelihood die, people flee their homes and conflict arise as a people fight for the scarce sources of livelihoods. Without sustainable livelihoods, the residents have been exposed to extreme poverty.

Solution

Fruit trees are multi-purpose trees. Apart from conserving the environment, their fruits will help reduce malnutrition among the children by providing a source of nutritious and tasty food. The community members will also be encouraged to replicate the same so that they can provide food for their families and build sustainable livelihoods by planting drought resistant fruit trees

Long-Term Impact

In the long term, we hope to reach over 200 Schools, planting over 40,000 fruit trees and 200,000 non-fruit trees. We also hope to extent the project to the community and the neighbouring county of Elgeyo Marakwet. The expected outcome will be reduced food insecurity and sustainable income for the community that is highly vulnerable climate change effects. The ecological system will also significantly improve.
