Progress Report Food & Livelihoods Interventions

There is a saying that goes; one finger can not kill a louse, we have discovered this to be very true as we implement our project as our donors have been very supportive .

90 households have benefited from the establishment of kitchen gardens, fruit and vegetable stalls and rearing of small livestock. The initial beneficiaries have increased their production and diversified their farm activities, as they earn income from the garden produce and animal products. The weather has not been very favourable, causing a delay in the increase of the beneficiaries who require kitchen gardens.

20 beneficiaries have had an exchange visit, vising other beneficiaries in order to share and exchange ideas, as they learn on better ways of diversifying their farm activities to ensure food security. We hope to increase the number as the project goes on.

" I am very happy, since embarking on this project my children and I have never gone to bed hungry, now I am able to sell some of the produce and provide my children with school fees and school uniforms, I wish to thank all the people who have helped me, may God bless you." Francis, one of the beneficiaries.

We wish to thank our donors very much, without you these lives would not have been transformed this far.
