Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Cassava Seeds

The Cassava Initiative recently donated seedlings to the people of Nyamira County as they tried to address the food security in the region. This has led to an improved harvest and ample food for the locals. Nowadays Mr. Odindo can never miss to have food in his homestead unlike before since cassava is drought resistance and also matures fast, it can be ground and mixed with maize grain as flour or cooked and eaten the way it is. This food is quite nutritious hence a healthy nation.
