A Blueprint for Sustainable Development in Remote Africa.

Within the next 25 years the population of Africa will roughly double from 1 to 2
Billion, most babies being born in rural villages. These rapidly growing Communities
can either become desert slums dependent on Western Food Aid, or… Value Villages.

Lion Strength community-based organization operates in the rural Turkana region of Kenya. It is dedicated to empowering rural communities and fostering sustainable development through its innovative approach of establishing “value villages.” We understand the challenges faced by the communities we serve and strives to address them by promoting social, economic, and environmental progress.

Our primary goal is to improve the overall quality of life for the residents of rural Turkana by creating well informed, self-reliant, and resilient communities. We achieve this by working closely with partners and local populations, identifying their needs, and implementing targeted solutions that contribute to long-term sustainable development. Our approach is characterized by community participation, capacity building, and the integration of innovative techniques.

LionS Strength believes in the power of collaboration and community-led solutions. Our community engagement strategy is centered around listening, learning, and leveraging the inherent strengths opportunities among the rural Turkana communities. We work closely with community members, local leaders, and partners, involving them in every step of our decision-making process. This ensures that our actions and interventions are culturally sensitive, relevant, and effective. In doing so, we create a space for dialogue, mutual growth, and shared success, ultimately shaping self-reliant communities that can sustain their own development well into the future.

We are firm believers in the power of collaboration and partnerships. Our partnership strategy is centered around creating synergies and leveraging complementary strengths to achieve our shared vision of a thriving, self-reliant Turkana. We actively seek alliances with local organizations, government bodies, international NGOs, and relevant stakeholders, recognizing that each partner brings unique resources, expertise, and perspectives that can help us better serve our communities.

Our collaborations are characterized by mutual respect, open communication, and a shared commitment to fostering sustainable development. We focus on creating partnerships that are not just transactional but transformational, built on the principles of mutual growth and shared learning. We consider our partners to be an integral part of the Lion Strength family, and together, we work to create lasting impact and positive change in the lives of the communities we serve.

We are committed to being a strong voice and advocate for the rural communities of Turkana. We believe that sustainable development is only possible when policies and regulations support and enable the growth of these marginalized communities. Our advocacy strategy is centered around promoting inclusive, fair, and effective policies at the local, regional, and national levels.

We leverage our on-the-ground knowledge and deep understanding of the community’s needs to inform policymakers and drive the agenda towards the empowerment of rural Turkana. Our advocacy efforts are geared towards influencing systems and structures that affect the lives of the people we serve, focusing on promoting their rights, improving access to resources, and fostering a conducive environment for sustainable development.

Simultaneously, we work within the community to raise awareness about their rights, responsibilities, and the policies that impact them, fostering a culture of informed citizens who can actively participate in shaping their future. In all our advocacy and policy efforts, we remain guided by the principles of fairness, justice, and the pursuit of a better quality of life for all.

We understand the crucial role that effective monitoring and evaluation play in achieving our mission and vision. We are committed to implementing a robust monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system, designed to measure the progress, impact, and success of our initiatives, and to ensure accountability to our communities, partners, and stakeholders.

Our M&E strategy involves tracking our projects against predefined targets and indicators, using both qualitative and quantitative data. We rely on participatory methods to gather and analyze data, involving community members to ensure their perspectives and experiences shape our understanding of our impact.

Learning is at the heart of our M&E strategy. We continuously evaluate the outcomes of our work to identify best practices, lessons learned, and areas for improvement. We believe in being transparent about our successes and challenges, using these insights to adapt and refine our strategies, and enhance the effectiveness of our interventions.

Through this iterative process, we strive to ensure that our efforts remain relevant, effective, and aligned with our commitment to fostering sustainable development and community empowerment in Turkana.

We are dedicated to effective and sustainable resource mobilization, recognizing it as a fundamental pillar of our work. Our resource mobilization strategy is driven by a commitment to secure diverse and reliable resources, both financial and non-financial, that are crucial to realizing our mission and goals.

We actively seek partnerships with donors, philanthropists, and funding bodies who share our vision for a resilient Turkana. We also explore innovative fundraising approaches and revenue streams, such as social enterprises and crowdfunding, to ensure financial sustainability and independence.

Simultaneously, we are deeply committed to the efficient and transparent use of resources. We prioritize projects that provide the maximum impact for each resource invested, ensuring that our work delivers value for money. We also maintain rigorous financial controls and reporting systems to ensure accountability and transparency in our resource allocation and expenditure.

In all our efforts, we remain guided by a principle of stewardship, ensuring that every resource entrusted to us is utilized effectively to bring us closer to our vision of empowering and improving the lives of the rural communities in Turkana.
