Much has been happening in the last few weeks. Here is a quick update
The game count has just ended thanks to the dedicated work of the ILRI coordinator Shem Kifugo, and the three team leaders on the ground, Nickson Parmisa, David Sorimpan and Joseph Tuleto. We will be sharing the results in coming days and weeks.
Game count finances
We are extremely pleased that the count came off on budget and on time. Our fund raising was very successful and through your contributions, we raised a little over what we needed for the count. The extra funds (about Ksh 200,000) will go toward the next stage which includes data entry and analysis, as well as community meetings to share and discuss the results, as well as final report writing.
We will soon start fund raising for the dry season count.
We have shared the results of the members survey here and we are now having very productive meetings with organizations and communities.
