Livestock is our livelihood

Livestock is our life. With livestock we have everything. Last year, when we had a bad drought, crops failed, but it is livestock that saved us,” revealed Loipekume Loware, a pastoralist, Karamoja, Uganda. We support initiatives to develop pastoral production system as the most sustainable way to attaining food security in arid and semi-arid regions of Eastern Africa. To these communities, ‘livestock is everything’… This is why since 2014, we have been supporting efforts to contribute towards development of pastoral production system. Warrior Squad Foundation, Karamoja Development Forum and Friends of Lake Turkana have implemented initiatives that have contributed to the improvement of adaptive capacity of pastoralists in Turkana in Kenya and Karamoja in Uganda, enabling them to build resilience, create sustainable livelihoods and improve food security.
