Challenge

Energy poverty hinders economic development in rural areas. Food insecurity is increased since women spend a lot of time looking for firewood at the expense of doing activities that creates income. Cooking with firewood not only destroys the environment but also women and children are prone to respiratory diseases they contact during cooking. Children education standards reduce drastically since they cannot read at night. The need for energy to cook, lighting and power enterprises is needed.

Solution

Developing jatropha and castor nurseries; training youths on agroforestry entrepreneurship and value chain development, Training and extension on energy crop agroforestry; advocacy on renewable energy and promotion of clean energy.

Long-Term Impact

Having strong cooperative movement in villages that supports agricultural development and production of renewable energy from agriculture and natural resources.
