The Jembe Fund was born. Right now Jembe Fund focuses on providing livestock and farm training for families in Kenya and Tanzania. If you’re wondering about the name, Jembe means “hoe” in Swahilia, which is the garden tool that many farmers rely on. Using a hoe to warm is brack-breaking work that’s usually done in extremely hot temperatures. By giving a family sheep, cows or goats, we can provide them with a better way to live, work and thrive.
