ADS North Rift team led by Mr. Peter Nyorsok, together with BAYER and AMREF teams led by Frederick Nyambare and Dr. Elizabeth Wala respectively met the Governor of West Pokot County His Excellency Hon. Professor John K. Lonyagapuo with his Executive team at his county offices.

The governor later flagged off several types of equipment under the Integrated Crop and Livestock Development Project which is being implemented by ADS North Rift in partnership with County Government of West Pokot and supported by Bayer East Africa Limited. This includes; 1000 fingerlings, Dorper sheep, and Galla goats.

The aim of this project is;

  • To promote livelihood diversification for people in poverty and exclusion through crop production.
  • To improve household income for livestock keepers and increase awareness on the improved breeding stock.
  • To improve household uptake on health and sanitation information on good practice to reduce effects of FGM on girls.

We also commissioned an ablution block at St. Francis School for the visually impaired.
