The Mbaruk Goat Breeding Station Project's aim is to provide a service to the local community to cross-breed their goats with the project's Toggenburg goats, producing animals with a greater resilience to local diseases as well as a much higher milk yield; an approach that has been used successfully elsewhere in Kenya. This is potentially a lucrative and exciting venture for Mbaruk and one that can model sustainable and ethical farming at a local and international level.
This project is about engaging Kenya's youth, especially those in the diaspora in the UK, with the wealth of Kenya's cultural heritage. Specifically, it's about guiding a group of young women and men on a journey to reconnect with this extraordinary, yet sometimes neglected, heritage. During the project, many types of Kenyan objects will be looked at and studied because of their cultural significance and merit.
