Empower 175 students for food security in Kenya

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

The year 2020 started very well and we all had a lot of hopes that the year would be much better than last year. Like previously reported, our youth polytechnics reported back to school after long December holiday and they started the school term well little did we know that the learning will be affected by the “monster” covid 19 pandemic which has affected the whole world. Although they had started their usual school activities they had to stop most of them and stay at home for their safety. We are happy that to this far we have not had any of our communities that we are working with tested positive with the corona virus and we hope for the best. Most of our agribusiness clubs that we have been supporting had already started their garden activities with most of them with ready vegetables which they were selling to their schools for their meals and selling surplus to their neighbors. It has been very difficult for them to work on their school gardens or even sell the vegetables as they used to since they cannot be allowed in the schools compound and they can only get updates from the few school workers who have access to the schools. Although the club patrons in some schools are coordinating sales of vegetables, the club members feel that it is not enough as they had a lot of activities they had planned for their gardens and most of them were preparing products to show case during annual agricultural show in Nakuru which is held in July every year unfortunately this year things are different. There are losses of farm produce for some of the gardens as it has been raining heavily and they feel they could have taken advantage of the heavy rains and especially on water harvesting and planting new crops. They fear that they will lose a lot and they will have to start all over again but since they don’t have an alternative they have to bear with the situation and we really feel sorry for these young youths who had high hopes that their agribusiness will be more productive this year considering the favourable weather. We hope this monster will come to an end soon and things will get back to normal. Thank you to our friends and well-wishers who have been thinking about us and our communities and also for their kind contributions. We really appreciate your support and concern during this difficult moments
