Together against climate change

Diakonie Katstrophenhilfe

Dear Donors,

Endris, 25, is married and has one daughter. He lives with his family in one of the villages most affected by climate change. They do not own their own land, but lease it from older people in the village. Endris wants to improve his family's nutrition and strengthen their income by farming. But the profits are not enough, especially the heavy rains destroyed part of the harvest last year.
Endris has joined forces with 13 neighbours to run a climate field school funded by the project. There they try out different cultivation and irrigation methods and test new seeds for their resistance to drought. The group meets weekly and evaluates the weather and the condition of the seeds. They pass the data on to the local weather station in the district for analysis. Based on the values, they want to better counteract plant diseases and pests in the future. From the project, for example, they received early germinating and frost-resistant wheat, which they tested on several fields with different organic fertilizers and irrigation methods.
The work in the Climate Field School enables the men to identify their greatest challenges in adapting to climate change - and they are given various options for action. Because one thing is clear: only together can they secure their livelihoods.

 

Please support our course. Together we can countering the effects of climate change

 

Yours

Michael Tuerk
