PARAN is a non-governmental organization that is working to help improve water access in Northern Kenya. The region is home to a large number of pastoralist communities, who rely heavily on livestock for their livelihoods. However, these communities often face water shortages during times of drought, which can lead to devastating losses of livestock. PARAN is working to address this problem by helping to drill boreholes and construct rainwater harvesting systems. In addition, the organization is also training local community members in water conservation practices. By improving water access and promoting water conservation, PARAN is helping to reduce the vulnerability of pastoralist communities to drought.
