The Pastoralist Integrated Support Programme (PISP) was formed in 1996 as a national NGO and mainly works with pastoralist communities living in the ASAL areas of Northern Kenya (greater Marsabit) as a local development agency. PISP aspires to contribute to the reduction of poverty and vulnerability amongst these pastoralists through sustainable fostering of community empowerment and facilitation of education, livelihoods development, governance and water related programs. We have a vision for a pastoral community that is peaceful, healthy, self-reliant and responsible for its own development.
