What is the long term solution to recurring droughts and starvation in
Dr. Elijah Korich, founder and
CEO of Keiyo Soy Ministries (KSM) believes it requires
empowering communities and assisting them in identifying and
developing local resources. Ascertaining sustainable development
in rural Africa can only be achieved by engaging individual
communities in the development of their local resources.
Preservation of natural resources,
water catchments, preservation of forests, planting of trees,
food self-sufficiency, crop production, livestock development,
water development and irrigation, public health clinics,
education, and local capacity building are among the activities
Keiyo Soy Ministries is striving to achieve in the next five
years. Income generating development includes production of
crops for local consumption and cash crops like coffee, fruits
for local markets, and eventually the exporting of these
products will provide communities with foreign currency.
