Northern Kenya is desperately dry. The nomadic pastoral communities that live there rely on the sale of livestock for their basic livelihoods. But they struggle to earn enough to make ends meet and provide for their families.
Food for the Hungry developed a livestock market project that aimed to tackle the issues that kept communities in poverty. With donations from UK supporters and UK Aid government funding, the project has seen outstanding results - with the average income of a pastoral farmer increasing by 260% over the last two years, 10,879 people have been lifted out of poverty.
