In Zambia we are engaging with more than 800 small-scale families to change their dependency on charcoal production for cooking or earning an income. For example through forestry training, beehives and trainings on permaculture or plant nursery, to diversify their skills.
One of those small-scale farmers is Agness T, who joined us in 2017 after retiring as a nurse. She first attended training on plant nursery and now started her own home-based nursery. Especially her orange trees are doing great, and the upcoming harvest will add to her current income. She also has five beehives, of which four are currently occupied, so even more income from honey is on its way.
Finneas and Rita M. are another example of farmers that take the new practices learnt at their hearts. They organised their land very well, with a successful nursery and various livestock positioned around their central home, making management easy and effective. They also recently added five beehives and soon they will start reaping the benefits from this as well.
