V. FIGHT AGAINST EARLY MARRIAGE
It is clearly observed that camp of KAKUMA and KALOBEYEI,early marriage is exercised to a very high rate.Giving for the a signal that Youth under 18 years impregnate among them selves,Youth of 25 years and above and married men get married to young girls of years under 18.This effects to many numerous divorces and many end up miterate.
To prevent this YEDA restores beek the programme to fight against Early marriege to promote Youth Education.

VII. AGRICULTURE AND FARMING
Working area of YEDA is found in semi-desert region (diminished of trees and gran),there is no adequate rain,even permanent rivers.Being an association with farming and cattle keeping programme we train the community various techniques of farming of cattle keeping to improvise them vegetables and meat besides provision givene by UNHCR.
Moreover,KAKUMA and KALOBEYEI are the camps where the sun shines extraordinarily to point that people lose oxygen.It is hot region.
We,YEDA after being given erops by big international organisation working in those camps,we are sensitizing the community to transplant from nursery in their plots and also in the schools.
In this point of view and what does with the hort,the host community consists of cattle herders and anyway,they are nomadic as a result of their cattle keeping but the way they keep their cattle is not appropriate.
As a solution to this,YEDA organise some sorts of workshops to give the some techniques for them to do their cattle keeping a bit better and reproductive.
