Growing Food Despite The Drought In Kenya

This year our food security projects helped over 3.2 million people around the world. One such scheme, which was completed this year, served 465 families and two schools in Kenya’s drought-stricken Kilifi County. We installed two boreholes, providing water for schools, homes, and 100 acres of land. Bringing local people together in farmers’ groups, we trained them in effective farming techniques. As a result, food production rose by 40 per cent, and women and girls, freed from the time-consuming task of fetching water, now have more time to earn a living or go to school.
