Pastoralists have been marginalized and consented to poor lifestyle, merging their intermediate needs
the efforts to deliberate have been conflicting with the needs that should be catered first. The
organization is a voice to the contemporary pastoral communities where we engage directly with
communities to realize their urgent needs and leverage for immediate intervention. These vulnerable
groups are subjected to direct implications of scarcity, their involvement in decision making processes
will impact them positively as they will have chances to air out their most urgent needs which requires
immediate interventions. Strategic involvement will impact their environment positively as they will
part and parcel of their life development processes. Engagement forums will be focused to fetch ideas on
real issues and take to an account to intervene authentically.
a)Positive Youth Development and Citizenship Practices
Development of a theoretical framework for youth participation in context of community development and
policy formulation processes is a worthy cause to influence the young generations to embrace the future
with positivity as interventions are timely and considerate to all.
There is a need to create an environment conducive to adolescents' taking responsibility for their
quality-of-life issues by welcoming and enabling youth. Power has to be transferred to youth as
responsibility for voicing, decision making, and action for the betterment of tomorrow. This will lead
positive changes in youth development and their social integration into the community.
Dialogue to deliberation
Deliberative dialogue and decision-making among youth is limited by their lack of knowledge and
experience with social or policy issues worthy of deliberation, or that they underestimate potential
negative consequences of either personal decisions or policy choices. To ensure youth can productively
engage in institutional decision-making, a variety of efforts have to be made to enhance their
understanding of policy issues, develop the skills needed to engage in effective dialogue, and create
opportunities for youth engagement in decision making processes.
Coping with Youth Violence
Uninformed youthful behaviors can represent a great problem to the society if not well managed, their
engagement in peace
forums to create awareness on importance of peace stability to their lives even in the remotest areas in
the country is a chance to restoration of stability.
Parents as well can be taught on how to equip their children with necessary values which will help
youths grow responsibly.
Adolescent and Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health
Youths at their growing eves their sexual health is very sensitive and should apply compelling was
to mitigate possible threats. There are nearly two billion young people in the world today who have
specific health and development needs, and many face challenges that threaten their well-being,
including poverty, a lack of access to health information and services, and unsafe environments.
Investing in adolescents can accelerate the fight against poverty, inequality and gender
Preconception care and contraceptive use can prevent unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions and
sexually-transmitted infections in adolescent girls and young women (Dean, Lassi, Imam and Bhutta,
Although adolescents are commonly referred to as the "next" or "future generation", they require
protection and care, services, opportunities, support, and recognition now (UNICEF, 2011).
b)Health education advocacy through cultural awareness.
Culture is a pattern of ideas, customs and behaviors shared by a society which defines their lifestyle
posterity to generations and connects the past, present and the future. Health is a concept of culture
which is articulated in every society, in the normative way of living people had compelling ways to make
sure their members are healthy. The current globalization changes in social evolution where dietary
patterns completely changed and environment also changed, health deliberations have advanced to be more
complex, outdated interventions based on culture used centuries ago won’t help any more.
Pastoral communities living in the peripherals of Kenya, marginalized in resource distributions and with
very less involvement in their lives development, they only see interventions rolled out which barely
meets their specific needs.
Hygiene ranging from individual consumption to resources like water, sanitation speaks a lot to these
communities. This doesn’t matter who rolls the interventions, the interventions should be measured,
evaluated and predetermined to influence these communities in all dimensions positively.
The increase rates of teen pregnancies in these communities is mostly due to lack of education on lucid
approaches to protect themselves. Advocating for health interventions to be intensified will be an
absolute baseline to address community health authentically through provision of education on proper
approaches to health provisions.
