Summary

This program gives seeds, tools and training to 1000 peasant farmers in eastern Congo so they can increase their production and income.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Eastern Congo is recovering from a decade of war that severely damaged agricultural productivity. Ongoing conflict increased food prices and made it extremely difficult for poor farmers to cultivate crops. As a result, thousands of farmers reliant on agriculture to earn a living have been unable to produce crops and provide for their families due to this instability.

How will this project solve this problem?

Green House partners with community-based organizations and farmers’ associations in farming communities to provide materials and training in sustainable farming techniques. Green House also operates a seed bank, a nursery and a demonstration field.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will provide 1,000 poor farmers with seeds, tools and training which will increase their production and capacity to provide for the basic needs and education of their families.
