Our Flagship Project

Ohala Kenya’s Rural Economic Development Initiative (REDI) is a youth focused agriculture program harnessing smart agriculture and sustainable farming technology. REDI mobilizes, organizes and supports a new generation of farmers who will harvest more while using fewer resources and producing less waste, creating an exponentially more efficient and sustainable farming sector.


Research & Learning

Our conversations, strategies and activities are informed and driven by ongoing research, investigation and analysis of social and economic issues surrounding the Lake region economy. Our studies are collaborative and focus on practical issues affecting individuals, households, farmers, entrepreneurs and other segments of the society.

Internship Program

Ohala Kenya international internship program hosts, supervises and support students pursuing degrees in agricultural science, Community Development or related fields, who are aiming to gain some work experience.
