Two-thirds of Kenyans depend on the crops they grow and the animals they keep for their livelihoods and survival. Prolonged drought has killed livestock and withered crops, leaving nearly four million people at risk of serious hunger, especially in the northern and Rift Valley regions.
Much of the country is classified as arid or semi-arid. The increased frequency of drought and competition over scarce water resources, coupled with the outbreak of animal disease, has left pastoralists especially vulnerable to hunger.
Farm Africa works with small-scale farmers, pastoralists and women to help them find new ways to make a living and lift themselves out of poverty.
