We collaborate closely with Pastoralist and agro-pastoralist groups in the Horn and work together towards addressing the social and economic marginalization of pastoralists.
We focus on capacity building for pastoralist communities and advocate for pastoralist livelihoods as a sustainable and productive way life.
Our main tool for influencing policy towards pastoralism and the design of development programmes is action-oriented research. We value indigenous knowledge and practices and African perspectives on African contemporary Issues.
We implement projects at ground via creating and strengthening genuine partnerships and promote gender-sensitive participatory approach
