Summary

Agriculture plays a very essential role in enabling women manage families as income generators and mothers. This is always very difficult for them because they do not have access to quality seeds, equipment and inputs. In addition to this, the soils are too poor with the results that farm yields are too low and cannot help them generate the much needed income to manage families. The question now is, how to help these women get improved seeds, inputs, equipment and capacity building measures?

Challenge

Women are able to provide for their families using proceeds from the sale of agricultural products. Unfortunately, the poor nature of the soils, lack of quality seeds, training, equipment and inputs make it very difficult for them to do all these. With the increasing responsibility, and little resources, they find it difficult to take care of even the health care needs of their families with results of higher mortality and high incidence of diseases like diabetes, hypertension etc.

Solution

The provision of quality seeds, inputs and equipment as well as capacity building measures to 80 women means improving the quality of life for 80 families and more than 400 people. This means children will be able to feed well, go to school and their health insurance will be guaranteed since this will help improve farm yield and consequently family income levels. The best way we can do this is to help the women produce their own seeds, buy their own inputs and equipment.

Long-Term Impact

Farm yields will be improved and consequently income levels. Over dependence on men will be reduced, insubordination and abuse will be brought under control. They will be able to manage their own resources, take part in decision making especially in households. Education of the children will be guaranteed and food will be available. The high incidence of degenerative diseases like Diabetes, hypertension etc will be reduce leading to improved health of entire families and whole communities
