TUPADO is the acronym for Turkana Pastoralists Development Organization. The Organization was founded in 2000 and registered in Kenya as a National NGO in 2002 with the NGO Coordination Board. TUPADO was created from two organizations (Kakuma Pastoral Development Project (KPDP) and Lokitaung Pastoral Integrated Development Project (LPIDP), which worked together from 1996 in North Turkana under the support of Oxfam GB Turkana project.
The organization has extensive and vast humanitarian experience working directly with pastoralists from Turkana county and other pastoral communities both in the neighbouring counties of West Pokot, Baringo and Samburu in Kenya; and moreover Ethiopia, Uganda and South Sudan borders with Kenya.
Our work increases incomes, improves livelihoods, and creates opportunities for those who have traditionally been excluded. Our programmes in Turkana County and its sorroundings inform how we–in close collaboration with our funders, partners, staff, and beneficiaries–achieve desired development outcomes and positively impact targeted communities. TUPADO is funded by official development assistance. We design and implement major agriculture, economic development, and resilience programs in developing countries.
