Thomas Osore Omulako, a rainmaker in the Nganyi community

Thomas Osore Omulako, 74, a rainmaker in the Nganyi community shows his maize farm. The Nganyi community is a largely subsistence farming community. Therefore, much of the income of the community and their source of livelihood is very much dependent on rainfall.

 

"When rains fail then we don’t have food" says Thomas Osore Omulako, "That is why it is important that when the rains fail, we have to act fast to help. Everyone depends on it."
