Lumo
We are currently providing alternative sources of livelihood to 305 households within LUMO Conservation area and in collaboration with LUMO Community Sanctuary. This is happening through establishment of aloe, Moringa and amaranth enterprises to be channelled through an upcoming cooperative society called (Mwakibu Farmers Cooperative Society) combining Mwakitau, Kishushe and Bura working areas. The cooperative society combines 14 local registered groups with mature aloe plants, Moringa and amaranth which is a seasonal crop. For sustainability, the crops have to be increased annually. This initiative together with the awaiting products making equipments is made possible by assistance from PACT Kenya. The machine intended for mass production will be installed in Mwashuma town which is a central place for all the groups.
