Challenge

Extreme climate events such as droughts, floods, and cyclones have been heavily affecting Mozambique in recent years, putting food security at risk. Agriculture is the main source of subsistence for the Mozambican families. However, in the past 3 years the production has been compromised causing famine, malnourishment and low income. Moreover, the access of students and the communities to fruits is insufficient or at unaffordable prices.

Solution

Fruit trees will balance the students' and the communities' diets, fight climate change and generate income. The Medium Agrarian Schools will implement the project in the communities. As part of the students' training, teachers and agrarian technicians will help the students in planting, nurturing the tree and producing fruits. The communities will learn how to grow the fruit trees from the students, since they apply what they learned at the communities, supporting local farmers associations.

Long-Term Impact

We will plant a 1,000 fruit trees in the communities and train 260 students from the Medium Agrarian Schools each year on how to grow plant trees. In the long term, it will generate income for the communities by selling some profitable fruits. The communities will feel inspired to plant more fruit trees and value the role they represent for sustainability, ecosystem restoration and food security. Food security will be supported, they will have access to a more balanced diet with varied fruits.
