Afriscout is helping herders in Kenya’s Arid and Semi-Arid (Asal) counties track pasture and water for their cattle digitally. The application covers herders in Isiolo, Mandera, Marsabit, Wajir, Kajiado, and Tana River. This helps herders locate rich pastures for their flock.
As per its Linkedin page, Afriscout was established in 2017 by a Social Enterprise subsidiary of Project Concern International (PCI). PCI is a development organization driving innovation from the grassroots to end hunger, enhance health, and overcome hardships. AfriScout is focused on transforming the way pastoralists across Africa discover water and pasture for their animals using mobile and satellite technology.
AfriScout’s platform gives pastoralists the current picture of water and vegetative conditions on localized grazing maps that enable them to accurately and cost-effectively manage migration decisions, pasture management, and collaboration, reducing the risk of herd loss while transforming lives in the process.
