Why Pastoral AID?
The subsequent droughts in the region, the suffering of the pastoralists and absence of drought recovery interventions and future coping mechanisms or disaster preparedness in place. The absence of local initiatives and no meaningful local voice for the local community was the biggest issue that led to the formation of the organization.
The vacuums exist due to lack of funding to undertake meaningful development in this region.
Our situation can be described as that of young toddler walking his sibling to Promised Land of honey. “We cant go where we want to go”. Our situation is “NOMAD”, meaning No Money for Active Development.
Droughts have been recurrent every other few years with people losing their livestock and moving to new cluster of villages to be recipients of relief food and thus developing dependency syndrome.
The pastoral drop outs are caught up in a vicious cycle of perpetuating in poverty with no hope to break through for ever increasing state of hopelessness. Pastoral Aid strategy aims at restoring hope and dignity for the pastoralists of Northern Kenya.
