In the month of April 2012, this initiative supported the education of 30 SEP members, and provided 180 girls and boys with fertilizers for their horticultural programmes!
Moving forward, SEP has resolved to move away from distributing fertilizers, but train her members on making farm yard/decomposed manure. This will help sustain the programme in the long run, and besides its sustainability, it improves soil fertility. As such, SEP has scheduled for training on decomposed manure in the month of MAY, and the first target group will be trained as Trainers of Trainees. (TOTs). The TOTs will then have the responsibility of replicating the skills among the cluster groups for effective implementation, as well as monitoring of the impact of the new idea. This decision is based on the fact that SEP membership is rapidly increasing, hence choosing on a long term approach of resource allocation is ideal.
Thank you to donors who have helped us to raise more than $1000! With these funds, we are planning to will enroll 180 beneficiaries in the SEP Agriculture program providing fertilizers and one capacity building workshop on making of farm yard manure. This will help reduce on fertilizer costs in the next season of planting. Additionally, SEP will be able to buy school uniforms to 30 young girls and boys in primary school program.
