Strategies for Northern Development (SND)

County: Marsabit
The Strategies for Northern Development (SND) is a local non-governmental organization working with nomadic pastoralist communities in Northern Kenya and Southern Ethiopia. SND was registered in Kenya with the NGO Coordination board as a fully-fledged NGO in 2007 and the Agency for Civil Society Organization in the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia in 2019.  

SND is guided by a vision to see a society where all pastoralist communities are resilient and live a dignified life and a mission to Empower and Transform pastoralist communities to be self-reliant.    

SND's thematic focal areas are based on five core strategic objectives; Peacebuilding and Governance, Food Security, Sustainable Livelihoods and Resilience, Water, Sanitation and Health (WASH), Child Protection and Education, and Humanitarian Assistance.   

In the recent past, SND has transformed into one of the leading local organizations in advancing social cohesion, sustainable livelihood & resilience of Northern Kenya and Southern Ethiopia cross-border communities.
