YATTA CONSTITUENCY LEADING THE WAY IN FOOD SECURITY

Date and time: 
Fri, 2013-02-08 14:47

Yatta Constituency is one of the six constituencies that constitute the expansive Machakos County. It is located in the Arid and semi- arid (ASAL) regions of Kenya and receives erratic rains of less than 500mm annually. The temperatures range from 10oC to 28oC. The altitude of Yatta ranges between 700-800 meters above sea level befitting the bill for a hot tropical climate where evaporation exceeds rainfall. Inspite of the tough climatic conditions, the constituency plays host to approximately 148,000 people.

It was a humbling experience to attend and participate in the 5 day intensive training course on GIS and Spatial Analysis. The diversity of participants; students at various levels of postgraduate study (MSc and PhD), staff (academic and Technical), experts and non-experts made the training bubbly as indeed there was a niche for all of us to exploit.

CSDES MADE MY DREAM COME TRUE

Date and time:

Frankline Otiende, intern attached to the CSDES Office

I quite enjoyed my internship at the Centre for Sustainable Dryland Ecosystems and Societies (CSDES) office. Besides giving me work experience, it enriched my professional life. Since I was a boy I had always dreamt of authoring a book or being one of the contributors or editors of some work. At the Centre this was a dream I attained. The first newsletter of the Centre bore my name as an editor. As an intern at the Centre I was able to edit the magazine. I learnt how to title articles put captions of pictures and design the magazine. I always had a dream of being a lecturer at a university. In reality I have attained this dream upon completion of my masters degree. Currently I’m a tutorial fellow at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University in Siaya County. Another dreamed attained courtesy of CSDES.
