In December 2013, the N2K Team, a group of youth from London (UK) walked from the Holy City of Najaf to the land of Karbala during Arbaeen 1435 to raise funds for The World Federation’s ‘Community Upliftment Project in Northeast Kenya’.
This initiative is a joint venture between The World Federation and Africa Federation which aims to provide long-term, sustainable solutions to uplift communities in Kenya’s drought affected areas and take them out of poverty.
The N2K Team raised almost £40,000 GBP of the £60,000 allocated for this project. The project comprises 9 different initiatives. This progress report provides an overview of the next initiative that has been completed:
KITCHEN GARDENS - TRAINING PROGRAM
A ‘kitchen garden’ is the establishment of an agricultural farm to produce fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs for personal consumption or commercial purposes. Over the past several years, Kenya has experienced severe drought where many of the local people living in the countryside lost their livestock; these domestic animals were their main source of income. Now, they have become financially dependent on others. In an effort to help uplift these drought victims, the ‘Kitchen Garden Training Program’ aims to:
• Create an alternate livelihood opportunity
• Increase food production by region
• Improve the quality of life of the local people
• Help these new farmers become financially self-reliant

The World Federation takes this opportunity to thank each and every member of the N2K Team for supporting the Community Upliftment Project in Northeast Kenya and all of the donors who so generously contributed to their fundraising efforts.
