Poverty is the challenge. The community of Yambio County of Gbudwe State, South Sudan depends heavily on agriculture, yet they practice shifting cultivation using rudimentary tools for subsistent purposes. There is acute hunger and children are malnourished. It is not easy for Yambio people to come out of this bad situation. The community depends on an insufficient seasonal rainfall and cannot grow crops for most part of the year.
