Through the IMPACT Project we work with farmers and communities through a comprehensive approach ranging from agricultural diversification and improved on-farm and post-harvest practices, sustainable production through natural resource management and increase access to resources such as extension and financial services.
We support farmers in increasing yields, income, and their family’s food security even in harsher growing conditions.
To enhance continuous food production, we work to improve water structures through drilling of new boreholes for crop production. The project target to drill and equip 10 boreholes in Turkwell and Katilu wards. The Program is also rehabilitating irrigation canals.
Through the program farmers have received sets of farming tools, certified seeds and mechanized farm preparation.

Prioritizing Gender Equality
IMPACT Program's approach to gender equality encompasses three core principles, which together comprise a strategy that increases women’s participation in the project and ensures that their participation is meaningful.
PanAfricare Kenya Program received funding from Bayer Foundation to implement the Agri-nutrition activities in Turkwell and Katilu Wards in Turkana County.
The project is a response to Turkana County’s chronic malnutrition, drought, and food insecurity.
To help alleviate this problem, it is essential to address the root causes of shocks that undermine the resiliency of communities.
The goal of the IMPACT is to significantly improve nutrition outcomes for pregnant and lactating women and infants and young children (defined as under 5 years of age) in Turkana County within five years, while simultaneously improving food security and resilience for the entire household.
PanAfricare Kenya is part of the wider PanAfricare Africa network that was established in July 2020. As an independent non-profit organization, we are pioneering a variety of self-help development programs in Kenya.
