Isiolo Station

The station was opened in 1987 as a Food Increase Programme covering Isiolo County with 2 projects; Food Increase Programm(food security, demonstration on indigenous food varieties, capacity building on improved farming technologies and techniques) and Community Health (mobile clinics, training of CHW's) In 1997 the Food Increase Programme was renamed to Food Security Programme and in 1998 we started sustainability activities in the station. Isiolo being among the Northern Frontier Counties is subject to frequent drought, floods, and tribal conflicts within the communities who include Turkana, Samburu, Borana, Somali and Meru. The station has been responding to the issues as they come through Relief Food Distribution, water tracking, livestock feed distribution and conflict resolution meetings
