In the Kajiado district in southern Kenya, the rains have not come for the fourth year in a row. Drought, rising food prices and climate change are combining to threaten the lives of the Maasai herders who call Kajiado home. This video tells their story.
Recently I was privileged to spend a few days in the company of a remarkable man. I first met Kenny Matampash in Kenya in May. A member of the pastoralist Maasai people, he runs a local NGO – Neighbours Initiative Alliance – that provides support to his fellow Maasai.
Using mobile phones, Concern distributed cash to over 3,000 people in the Kerio Valley, Kenya. The project was a success, empowering the recipients, improving their lives and stimulating the local economy.
