The arid and semi-arid regions of Kenya and Somalia face similar environmental and developmental challenges. Different communities and different ethnic tribes inhabit these regions. The way of live in these include pastoralism, peasant farming, crop and fruits farming, small scale and large-scale businesses and trading.
The challenges occasioned by climate change, traditional ways of livelihoods, culture, poverty, illiteracy and the lack of accessibility make the people very vulnerable to situations like poverty, water scarcity, gender based violence, political and economic marginalization among others.
Therefore, the Generation for Change, GCG, initiated this organization in full view of the above, and believing that the solution lies in the peoples’s hands.
