Central Kenya Dry Area Smallholder and Community Services Development Project

Central Kenya Dry Area Smallholder and Community Services Development Project

This project is the second phase of a BSF-financed project benefiting smallholders and communities in the Nyeri dry areas. Building on the first project’s impressive results in terms of health, home economics and group capacity to manage resources through cost-sharing, this follow-up project has as its overall objectives helping to reduce mortality and disease, and improving the living conditions of rural poor people in the arid and semi-arid lands of the Central Province in the districts of Kirinyaga, Maragwa, Nyandarua, Nyeri and Thika. The project is cofinanced by a Belgian Survival Fund (BSF) grant.

The project’s aims include:

  • raising food production and income, and improving living conditions through increased agricultural production and productivity
  • improving health care, providing safe water and promoting improved sanitation
  • strengthening local institutions
  • promoting participation

Project activities will benefit the poorest of the rural poor, in harmony with the government’s recent policy decisions and legislation regarding poverty reduction. The project supports the poorest rural communities, in particular landless people and households headed by women, and it involves poor people in identifying and meeting their pressing needs.
