What we are doing
Action Against Hunger has been present in Kenya since 2002, implementing both development programmes and projects to prepare the country for potential emergencies such as drought or flooding.
Our team works alongside local authorities to reduce the risk of drought through early warning systems, data analysis, and identification of local means to address hunger and malnutrition. We also work 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 local-level plans.
In 2017, we strengthened health systems, infrastructure, and local capacity to implement lifesaving activities and nutrition services. Working with local partners, our main programmes include:
- Improving food security through cash transfers and food vouchers
- Improving health and nutrition through integrated community health outreach
- Improving access to safe water and sanitation facilities
- Providing hygiene education
