Tanzania Village Training
The benefits of biochar for smallholder farmers are gaining recognition. In Tanzania, our network partner has registered Warm Heart Biochar Tanzania and has received a government invitation to a key agricultural conference in the fall. In the meantime, our Project leader Chris Simwinga, has organized training for over 1000 farmers so far this year in over 20 villages.
He now has 15 trainers across three regions, ready to train and then follow up with farmers to see how they are progressing with biochar. The trainers can then become verifiers for farmers making biochar and using it in their fields for crops to improve their yields and be eligible to earn carbon removal credits.
We set up this microproject to highlight the benefits of training. We thank you for helping us get matching funds and keep improving the lives of smallholder farmers and their communities.
We're closing this micro-project but will continue this work through our project: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/sustainable-farming-to-relieve-hunger-in-malawi/
Please continue to follow and support this work!
Many thanks and good wishes for the months ahead,
Dana, Michael, Evelind and the Warm Heart Biochar Team
