The community of Garba Tulla is graduating

The Garba Tulla community is making strong progress toward caring for all its children, not just those who are sponsored. They are now transitioning to self-sufficiency. Together with other sponsors, you’ve played an important part in helping Garba Tulla get there. Thank you!

Program Details


The Garba Tulla community borders the renowned Meru National Park, home to elephants, hippos, rhinos, lions, and other wild animals. The district is hot and dry most of the year, with scarce and unreliable rainfall averaging 580 mm per year. Ongoing drought has made daily life a struggle to survive.

Over 95% of families depend on livestock, crop production, and marketing as their sources of income. Raising livestock is embedded into the cultural way of life, and everything revolves around it. However, recurring drought is having a serious impact on livestock and crop production. 74% of the population lives below the poverty line, and this number is increasing. Garba Tulla is one of the neediest communities in the country.
