Kenya Ngong Intashat

The beneficiaries of the Ngong Intashat program are Maasai, nomadic - pastoralists whose main livelihood is dependent on livestock cattle, goats, sheep and donkeys. Many households earn less than $2 a day with a household consisting of an average of 7 members. The biggest challenge facing the population is water scarcity as the area is semi -arid with savannah grassland, rocky, hot with an undependable rainfall pattern. Because of this, settled life becomes practically impossible which limits income generating activities.. Sand dams will allow the community to settle down, especially as they are supported with training on conservation farming, hay bailing, and zero-grazing methodologies along with improving livestock strains. In 2014, students from Goshen College traveled to Ngong to film this documentary about the impact of the program.
