Tesco massive food waste figure is exposed to public: Who to blame?
We work with local and international partners on the following thematic areas:
Women Empowerment & Gender Equality We work with partners to empower women and help to change attitudes to women’s participation in the economy and in public life.
Food Security and Climate Change We improve the livelihoods of the pastoralist and agro-pastoralist communities by providing them with technical skills in making use of locally available plants such as Prosopis as animal feed in the region.
Pastoral Environmental and Resource Management We provide training programmes and workshops and do research on the use of resources in pastoral areas
Nomadic services We deliver projects to support basic education and health for women and Pastoralist children.
Conflict analysis and prevention in collaboration with local and international partners we deliver training, do research and run workshops to address resource based conflict in the region.
Food We Want We take part in this EU funded campaign to inform, raise awareness and lobby in the UK and Africa to promote small-scale family farming and sustainable agri-food systems as a key solution to tackling hunger and poverty.
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
