Over the past ten years, the pastoralist communities in these areas have become increasingly vulnerable to drought and famine as a result of climate change and increasing pressure of population in the highland areas and savannah belt. Children in these remote areas suffer poor access to education and low quality educational facilities


This project aims to address the declining prospects of traditional agriculture and pastoralism, by giving children and young people access to improved educational facilities so that they can develop skills for alternative livelihoods.
