The year 2012, started off as a very dry year, all over the country. We are in the month of March, by when we normally expect the long rains, but there no signs of rain coming soon. In regard to this, we are taking measures on how the beneficiaries will be able to cope with the changing weather patterns. Diversification of the planting materials to suit the current weather conditions, having new beneficiaries taking on small enterprises after trainings, so far 10 beneficiaries have acquired small stalls, and with the support we have received from our donors they will embark on their small enterprises (fruit and vegetable stall, rearing rabbits and chicken for sale). Capacity building on garden management and climate change issues, have been proposed and we hope to undertake them once we have enough funds, for all the involved beneficiaries to be in a position of increasing their production in consideration of changing weather patterns. We thank our donors for supporting our project, and request for their inputs on how we could improve on this project.
