When animals mean life.
With our projects, we enable these people to lead a self-determined life and to protect and promote their traditional way of life in unison with their animals and environment.
Where we help.
The knowledge, experiences and life strategies of the people in our projects in East Africa are at the heart of our work – we support them in leading a healthy and self-determined life in harmony with their animals in a healthy environment.
Healthy Animals. Healthy People. Healthy Environment.
Our work in East Africa benefits the health of animals, people and their surrounding environment. Together they form the three pillars of our project work, because only in harmony with each other it is possible to achieve positive sustainable development.
What is pastoralism?
Pastoralism is a form of migratory livestock farming in which livestock owners lead their animals to different pastures, sometimes several hundred kilometers away, in an annual cycle. The long-distance migration requires the management of a mobile household, i.e. pastoralists move their residence temporarily along the migration route. Pastoralism is a way of life practiced by approximately 200 million people, according to rough estimates by the FAO.
At the heart of our work is the welfare and protection of animals in our project countries. The pastoral livestock management we promote in our projects ensures a species-appropriate conditions for the farm animals.
