23 Community Self Help groups from Bahari and Mkunumbi ward have earlier today, received fiber boats, 15 HP outboard engine, fishing nets and farm input under the County Government of Lamu in partnership with World Bank-funded Kenya Climate Smart Agriculture Program (KCSAP).

The project is aiming at increasing agricultural productivity and building resilience to climate change risks in the targeted smallholder farmers and pastoralists community.

Addressing the beneficiaries at different centers, CECM Agriculture Hon. James Gichu, urged the group members to join cooperative Saccos in order to have bargaining power for their produce and be eligible to receive large donor funds.
