Project General Description

The Restoration of Farm Infrastructure and Rural Livelihoods Project (RFIRLP) will cover the Districts of Uasin Gishu and Molo in the Rift Valley Province. It is in response to the post conflict emergency following the Kenya PEV of 2008 during which many people lost their lives and thousands including farmers lost their homes and livelihoods. The project consists of three components: (i) On-Farm Infrastructure, (ii) Agricultural Input Services and (iii) Project Coordination. It will be implemented over a period of 3 years (2009-2012). Total project cost is estimated at UA16.673 million.

Project Objectives

The overall sector goal is to contribute to improved livelihoods among vulnerable groups and to reduce poverty. The specific objective of the project is to restore agricultural production and livelihoods for 19,000 farm households displaced by the PEV in the districts of Molo and Uasin Gishu in the Rift Valley Province.

Beneficiaries

The project will benefit a population of about 100,000 (19,000 households) previously displaced returnee farmers.
