MANDO is a young, rapidly growing nonprofit NGO addressing huge challenges in the southern Rift Valley of Kenya. Its nomadic, pastoral Maasai people face such a severe drought that they are forced to become more agriculturally based. This means reliable water sources must be close to evolving communities.
It is looking to help with this adjustment and at the same time overcome root causes of poverty, introduce sustainable methods of subsistance, improve education and gender equality.
Its highly effective approach is based on encouraging and enabling the people in planning and decision making. Its Board is comprised of community members who volunteer time and effort.
They pledge to maintain openness and accountability to constituents and partners. ANNUAL REPORT - QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER - other reports and procedures available on request. Of particular note is an agricultural training manualcompiled during MANDO's recently completed farming pilot program.
