Staff Spotlight: Introducing Faith Owuor

Faith joined the Farm Africa team in April. Based in Kenya, she manages our new Livestock for Livelihoods project in Uganda and Ethiopia. She has a degree in Agriculture and a masters in Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health.

What attracted you to Farm Africa?
I have worked for development organisations for the last ten years. I know Farm Africa has created a lot of impact through its livestock projects, so I wanted to contribute to this work to improve the lives of pastoral communities across eastern Africa.

What does your role involve?
I’m involved in all project activities. This includes visiting the communities involved in the project so I can relate to them and understand the challenges they face. This ensures we can find solutions that are appropriate for their needs and cultures, and will benefit them in the long term. I believe we are going to create great impact through this project!

What do you like most about your role?
I love seeing the change in the people we work with – seeing their lives being transformed. It brings me joy to help people improve their lives.

What has been your most memorable experience so far?
When I first visited the project sites it was great to see that everyone was so excited. They know we are experts in this field and have high expectations that we will help them improve their technical knowledge of livestock production. I am also excited that the project is focussing on women. In these communities women take on most of the household responsibilities, so it will be great to see how the project will empower them economically and help them play a more active part in the livestock business.

I would like to say thank you for the support you are providing. I want to assure you that we are working hard to use your contributions in the most effective way. I’m looking forward to sharing stories of success, so you can see how your support is helping people to change their lives for the better.
