A Growing Garden Feeds More than One Family
Kiwanjani Village is located in Isiolo County. There are people from different cultural groups living in that area. In Kiwanjani, we do not have a farm, and sometimes during the dry season there is a shortage of water.
Through Transformational Community Development (TCD), GHNI came alongside their search for water. After a few weeks of staying with them, they noticed the hard struggle of Attir Village’s search for water. They networked with a local organisation and the community. The community gave out land, and they drilled for water. Villagers were really happy after seeing water near them. As their homestead improved, villagers started farming and cleaning. The drilled water has really helped people and their animals. Animals used to travel almost 10 kilometres in search of water, which was really hard for the animals, especially in drought seasons. The lengthy travelling during drought seasons killed a lot of animals. Now villagers are happy the animals have a trough to drink from, and they are really happy and thankful for GHNI.
