Challenge

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.

Solution

1. This project is to help 30 single mothers to do farming: The project will hire an agriculture extension worker for 6 months to train the women on vegetable gardening for sales purpose Purchase vegetable seeds; tomatoes, Carrots, egg plants, cabbages Purchase for them ground nuts and maize seeds for plantation Purchase irrigation machines to help them plant throughout the year Transport the vegetable seeds from Uganda to Yambio, transport g/nuts and maize seeds from local markets.

Long-Term Impact

These projects will educate 70 women households allowing them to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families' livelihood, health, school fees and general well-being. The projects will provide irrigation machines to enable women farmers to grow crops throughout the year. Provide seeds of different kind to these women farmers (single mothers), giving them a good starter. Instill in them knowledge on modern crop plantation for sale purposes
