Sustainable Economic Development and Food Security

Akkerbouw (6)

ith the program Sustainable Economic Development and Food Security SEED Samburu together with the community proposes to find other ways to achieve food security and to generate income. The communities in Samburu County strive to be less dependent of their livestock, because of long droughts that lead to livestock atrocities. They wish to be less or independent of food reliefs, because the reliefs are not reliable and have negative influence on development.

As part of this program, SEED Samburu realized the following projects:
• Agricultural fields in four communities

Akkerbouw (1) Akkerbouw (2) Akkerbouw (3) Akkerbouw (5)
• Purchase of a tractor to plow agricultural fields
• Purchase of a mill to grind corn into cornmeal
