    Donate to end Hunger – Action against Hunger

    Kenya is a middle-income country, but its prosperity and growth have been uneven. The nation is home to more than 44 million people, 80 percent of whom live in rural areas and rely almost entirely on seasonal rainfall to make their living from small-scale farming. When the rains fail, crops fail—and people are left without a source of food or income. About 80 percent of the land in Kenya is arid or semi-arid, and nearly half of the population live below the poverty line. Communities in arid and semi-arid regions face immense challenges, including drought, hunger, malnutrition, and poverty. Last year, erratic and below-average rainfall contributed to limited harvests, smaller crop yields, loss of livestock, high food prices, and water shortages. Isiolo, West Pokot, and Samburu Counties faced critical food insecurity. 301,000 children were acutely malnourished.

    In 2017, we strengthened health systems, infrastructure, and local capacity to implement lifesaving activities and nutrition services. With partners, we improved food security through unconditional cash transfers and food vouchers. We improved health and nutrition through integrated community health outreach, and provided access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene education. With the county government in West Pokot, we improved nutrition and health among children under five and strengthened access to safe water, sanitation, and improved hygiene.

    We support county governments in reducing the risk of drought through early warning systems, data analysis, and identification of local means to address hunger and malnutrition. We worked with the National Drought Management Authority to increase community capacity to identify and manage risks by developing disaster risk management plans and linking them to county-level plans.

    In Isiolo, we reached 36,000 children under five, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers with blanket supplementary feeding to prevent hunger and malnutrition. We provided 3,000 households with food assistance through cash transfers and supported 15,000 beneficiaries with health and nutrition services. In Samburu, we implemented an emergency and capacity building project for health and nutrition interventions.

    Action Against Hunger has been working in Kenya since 2002. We currently have programs in four counties: Nairobi, West Pokot, Isiolo, and Tana River.
