Kenya dairy goats and capacity building project. Livelihood diversification reducing vulnerability and hunger

Kenya

Développement et Coopération EUROP AID

Titre : Kenya dairy goats and capacity building project. Livelihood diversification reducing vulnerability and hunger

Pays : Kenya

Durée : 2007-2010

Partenaires : Farm-Africa

Contexte
Most people in Kitui and Mwingi districts make a living through agriculture and livestock farming. Since the districts are in a semi-arid area and productivity is low, many people are living in poverty. The majority keep local breed goats, which do not need much care but yield little milk or meat.

Objectifs
1. Ensure sustainable improvements in the income of poor farmers through increasing the productivity of their livestock, especially goats.
2. Enable access to affordable loans for poor farmers and increase their annual income.
3. Ensure long-term sustainability of the project.

Impact
1. 36 000 beneficiaries in an area with 27 000 households, out of which around 1 000 benefit directly from the project
2. 1 750 goats given to farmers as breeding stock and 2 000 cross-bred goats born
3. 168 government officers trained
4. 36 shallow wells dug by beneficiary families

EC contribution : €1.4m (75% of the project)
