Building community resilience to manage crisis
Ripples International works in parts of Isiolo and Samburu Counties. These are semi-arid lands in northern parts of Kenya inhabited by pastoralists. During the dry spells of the year, pasture and water becomes harder to find, their livestock die and leave families vulnerable.
As a result of perennial drought, the people experience diverse problems associated with drought i.e. malnutrition, hunger, lack of access to health services, education, loss of livestock, lack of clean water supply.
