The climate change is already visible in Micani: This year the rainy season was unexpected longer than usual, which means that the roads were not clear for a long time. Therefore, we could not reach some families in the rural area. Nevertheless, we are doing our best to improve the nutritional situation in Micani – and we are making good progress: The school gardens with the micro-irrigation systems are already part of everyday life of the pupils, and everyone helps with it. Partly there is still enough water after the rainy season to irrigate with sprinklers, but with the micro-irrigation systems the schools are prepared for the critical time in July. The already built solar tents are working great – now two of three are planted. The preparations for the next three solar tents are in full swing and the villagers are very motivated to help with the construction. Furthermore, we are already working on the solution to the protein shortage of the children in Micani: the chicken farming. We have done a lot of research on this topic and are currently developing a model of how we can best build the chicken farms in Micani. So, our project at the village schools is progressing well. Recently, our work with the families of Micani has begun. The first workshop has already been held in five villages. In this one, the families learned the basics about nutrition. With the help of a traffic light scheme, the participants classified food into healthy, medium, and unhealthy. Also, they have learned which food components are important for a healthy diet – especially the necessity of vegetables. The 40 micro-projects will also start soon. The families have already submitted proposals for what they each want to tackle in their own micro-project. We then checked these proposals together with them for feasibility, so that we now have 40 concrete project ideas that we want to carry out as soon as possible. But before we can start with the procurement, the last part of the financing still must be clarified. Therefore, we would be happy about your support!
