As one way of mitigating the effects of drought and food insecurity in Baringo County, farmers from the county have benefited from high economic value galla goats.
While handing over a total of 105 goats to farmers, RECONCILE Director Peter Otieno, said that the efforts will see to it that farmers from the region are economically empowered from the programme.
He added that the high quality hybrid breed of goats will be a game changer since most of the farmers will be able to earn money from the sale of the goats with high goat meat value.
At the same time, he urged the national and County government to ensure that they enact policies and put in place strategies that
make food security sustainable even when there will be no donor support.
Baringo Governor Stanley Kiptis, who presided over the event, lauded the donors for coming up with the initiative which will improve the livelihoods of the residents who majorly depend on livestock as their main source of income.
The donations which include 151 beehives and pasture seeds came through the support of USAID, ACTED and European Union.
