PUM has been active in Kenya since 1989 and is currently working with multiple partners. The largest mission is the joint project with SNV Kenya as part of the Kenya Market-led Dairy Programme (KMDP). This SNV programme with a term of nearly 5 years is financed by the Dutch embassy in Nairobi. Kenya is one of the largest milk producers of Africa. Some 20,000 farmers are supported with knowledge and information. PUM experts assist in this. To date there have been 30 missions in which experts in the field of dairy farming have shared knowledge and experience. Concrete results: calf growth has risen from 300 to 600 grams per day while milk production has doubled from around 150 to 300 litres. This project is characterised by the farmer groups that function as informal knowledge exchange groups and the involvement of local consultants and organisations. Other participants include Dutch companies and students. For further information, click here.
