Pastoralist (nomadic herder) communities are highly marginalized, very traditional communities with little access to development resources, suffering cycles of resource-based violence as worsening droughts stress livestock, and drive desperate - and armed - searches for pasture and water.

The goal of this project is to increase inter-ethnic collaboration and empower local members of Laikipia West's five ethnic communities to sustainably work together to access government development funding, improve their livestock economy, and enhance local conservation and livestock feed sources to withstand drought and build resilience against the ever-present threat of violent conflict. This evidence-based project draws from Mediators Beyond Borders International (MBBI) Kenya Initiative's (Cooperating Organization) extensive research, experience and close partnership with these communities to identify their needs.

The project will meet these needs through a "positive peace" approach as follows: 1) Build Resilience Against Violent Conflict: MBBI will train pastoralist trainers and collaboratively create a localized curriculum, who in turn will train 60 women, youth and elders from five ethnic communities in conflict resolution skills as Peace Guardians, and in inter-ethnic collaboration for an improved livestock economy; 2) Increase Community Collaboration: a) The project will train an inter-ethnic team in community advocacy and how to apply for government funds to meet local service and development needs, and b) in facilitating community dialogue and joint planning for livestock, animal feeding and conservation activities; and 3) Establish Processes, Tools, Skills and Livelihood Improvements to Achieve Positive Peace: The Ngong Hills Rotary Club members will provide additional cross-ethnic training in collaborative livelihood enhancement through increased size and health of family herds, pasture management and mineral feeding, better animal feeding practices, and shared community conservation of communal pastures as grass banks through practicing conservation.

$40,000 in project funds will support bringing world-class international MBBI volunteer trainers to Kenya and support travel, meals, accommodations, in country transportation (remote location), and venues within Kenya for trainers and participants, for training, meetings, mentoring, and monitoring and evaluation. $50,000 will be used for veterinarian artificial insemination doses to improve genetics of cattle and goats; community training on improved animal husbandry practices, pasture management and mineral feeding techniques, pasture plots, etc.; meals, lodging, transportation, equipment rental, supplies. $6,000 will support local coordinators, local vet assistants and field monitors, and $4,000 is reserved for contingencies.

Rotarians from supporting clubs are invited to participate in trainings and community meetings in Kenya to experience the local cultures, learn about Positive Peace approaches, and how indigenous communities such as pastoralists can be supported in building their own sustainable peace through inter-ethnic collaboration, advocacy and development.

DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
