Helping Female Farmers Become More Financially Independent

Female farmers participating in our project can apply for an additional training: the "Plant Nursery Management Training".
In two days, they learn how to sow seeds, grow plants, graft and even bud trees!

One of the 15 trainees who completed their 2-day training, is Mrs.Veronica S*. As of today, she is able to grow her own trees in her own nursery. Altough her nursery is in its beginning phase, Veronica is already planning to expand it: she would like to grow and sell fruit and timber saplings to farmers in her neighbourhood. This allows her to diversify her income.  

Thanks to your support, we can support Veronica and other farmers in the Copperbelt region to obtain a 2-day training that will help them become more financially independent and obtain a more stable source of income.
