Project Report | Sep 9, 2020
Empower 175 students for food security in Kenya

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

The Corona virus pandemic has been a night mare to us since the first case was reported in Kenya in March 2020.  When schools and institutions were closed, we all knew that it will be just for a short period.  It is now 7 months since then and all institutions have been closed since then.  Our agribusiness club members have not been together as they used to be in different schools and working on their school gardens for food production and other agribusiness club activities.  It has been very difficult for them to follow up their agribusiness activities while at home and not working together.  As previously reported, they feared of losing many opportunities and their clubs’ activities being affected and now this has been the case.  They don’t have access to their institutions thus making it difficult to know what exactly is on the ground.  Few that we have contacted have already started some of these activities in their home gardens.  Although some of them don’t own any family garden, they practice urban farming techniques where they improvise locally available materials and turn them to simple gardens.  All students remain optimistic that soon schools will be opened and they are ready to restart again and revive their gardens.  This year the weather has been very conducive despite the pandemic and rain has been plenty and we hope and pray that by the time our students resume to schools, the rains will still favour them to give them a starting point. Thank you for the continued support as we encourage you to continue the journey with us to support our young men and women.  Once they report back to schools, they will definitely require our support to help them revive their projects.  We count on you to support them and help them get started.  Thank you all and stay safe.
