Kenya: Damning Dams and Voices of Turkana

The people of Turkana will give simple and humane stories of the threat of the Gibe Dam Project to their livelihoods and will make 2min mini series and later compile an 11min documentary. Through online sharing and push to funders and relevant organizations, the voices of the indigenous community will be heard and hopefully halt the process until sustainable measures are put up to save the largest desert lake. It derives 90% of its water from R.Omo & provides livelihood to about 300,000 pastoralists and fishermen. In the initial stages(3 yrs), water flow into the lake will be curtailed by 70%.
