PENHA founding director, Dr. Zeremariam Fre has published a book titled as Knowledge Sovereignty Among African Cattle Herders. The book published by the UCL Press focuses on the Beni-Amer cattle owners in the western part of the Horn of Africa. As the book explores these herders are not only masters in cattle breeding, they are also knowledge sovereign, in terms of owning productive genes of cattle and the cognitive knowledge base crucial to sustainable development.
Recently the Horn of Africa was hit by the Tropical Cyclone Sagar disaster which adversely affected the livelihoods of thousands.
Upon the receipt of the grant from the Rotary Club of Berkhamsted, PENHA has been working with the communities and consulting on the priorities they have in using the donated fund. Based on their discussion they agreed to invest the money on the support of the school infrastructure which can bring a long-term contribution to the children around the Kanyaryeru communities.
