NGO Profile
Brief Description
PEN HA (The Pastoral and Envi ronmental N etwork i n the Hor n
of Afri ca) was establi shed i n 1989 by a group of Afri can
research and development workers who were concer ned
about the welfare of pastorali sts i n the Hor n: one of the most
margi nali sed groups i n one of the world’s poorest regi ons. The
group ai med to work on two levels: wi th gover nments to help
change the percepti on of pastorali sm as an outdated li festyle
and a threat to ‘ moder ni sati on’ ; and at a local level wi th
pastorali sts themselves, wi th the ulti mate goal of achi evi ng
lasti ng i mprovements i n thei r quali ty of li fe.
O ne of the pri nci ples that has gui ded PEN HA throughout i ts
exi stence i s the beli ef that pastorali sm has proven i tself a
genui nely vi able means of creati ng a li veli hood i n many of the
harshest envi ronments i n the Hor n. It never theless faces many
and enor mous challenges, and must adapt to the changi ng
soci o-poli ti cal envi ronment i n the area. For some, thi s wi ll
undoubtedl y mean sedentar i sati on, whi l e f or other s,
conti nuati on of transhumance systems of fer consi derable hope
for the achi evement of a degree of sustai nabi li ty both soci ally
and envi r onmentally. PEN HA i s now establi shed as an
i nter nati onal N GO wi th pastorali st programmes i n Eri trea,
Ethi opi a, Sudan, Uganda and Somali land.
Mission
PEN HA’s mi ssi on i s to el i mi nate pover ty among the
pastorali sts i n the Hor n of Afri ca through empoweri ng of
communi ti es and the fosteri ng of sustai nable and di gni fi ed
li vestock-based and non-li vestock-based li veli hoods.
Goals:
• To empower pastorali st communi ti es and thei r i nsti tuti ons to
play a fuller role i n thei r empower ment.
• To i nfluence development poli cy and development program
desi gn to foster sustai nable li veli hoods among pastorali sts.
PENHA Somaliland
O f Somali land’s esti mated populati on of three mi lli on, over
half are i nvolved i n nomadi c pastorali sm and another quar ter
i n agro-pastorali sm, maki ng i t one of the most pastorally-
ori ented terri tori es anywhere. PEN HA’s i nterest i n Somali land
was therefore necessari ly hi gh from the begi nni ng.
PEN HA’s for mal engagement i n Somali land began i n July
2000 wi th a sur vey of the state of pastorali sm. ' PEN HA
Somali land' was establi shed i n August 2000 as a regi stered

mi ni str y of pastoral development and envi ronment (MO PDE)
and i n col l abor ati on wi th other agenci es to establ i sh
