Goat Breeding Station Project - Mbaruk Field Studies Centre, Kenya
The current project, with support from networks made through NECT is to participate in a goat breeding programme to improve the quality and production of goatsâ€™ milk and cheese in the area for local consumption and export in Kenya.
Mbaruk is a rural district near Nakuru in the Kenyan Rift Valley. The area is populated by subsistence farmers and small traders. There was an influx of inhabitants in 1992 following ethnic clashes in which people lost their farms in more Molo and Londiani areas, and acquired much smaller strips of land in Mbaruk. More recently, there was another influx of internal refugees following the post-election violence in the first few months of 2008. Some of those people have also remained in the area. Families tend to be involved in other forms of income generation alongside growing food to try and meet their everyday living needs, which include health and education costs.
A participatory rural appraisal carried out with the community in 2000 concluded the following issues were priorities: food security, primary health care and environmental depletion.
