Milk is Kenya’s most important livestock product; the #dairy #industry contributes over 3% of the country’s total #GDP and employs 50% of the agricultural labor force. TechnoServe is working to improve dairy livelihoods in Kenya by helping pastoralists and farmers to establish dairy business hubs. One of these #cooperatives is the Maasai Women Dairy, the first dairy plant in Kenya owned almost entirely by Maasai #women. http://ow.ly/dTIN30dzvSi

Smallholder farmers are among those most vulnerable to the effects of #climate #change, such as changes in rainfall patterns, increases in crop diseases and pests, and soil erosion. Our partnership with Kellogg's is helping more than 12,000 farmers in Madhya Pradesh, India to adopt #environmentally-friendly techniques that are easily accessible and profitable. #WorldEnvironmentDay http://ow.ly/tSy430ckPMJ
