These groups of people have always been actively involved in raising the standard of living for the most vulnerable people in the Ethiopia somali regions as a whole.

They will use greenhouses and fruit trees for shade and drip irrigation, using less water. To minimize the use of chemical fertilizer and pesticides they will learn how to make and use compost, animal manure, natural ways to combat pest and diseases and use natural and recycled materials. They will also make a plant nursery. Agricultural experts will train them for 7 months and the IDPs will later teach others from the area how to farm
