Summary

The Home Food Garden Project will support 100 families experiencing food insecurity in Pouk district in rural Siem Reap, Cambodia. The project will provide these families with hands-on training, mentoring, seeds, fertilizer and resources, enabling them to establish food production using their existing land. Hands-on training and mentoring on sustainable farming practices will help farmers launch their own vegetable gardens at home, providing sustenance for family members and improving health.

Challenge

Prior to COVID-19, undernutrition was a major public health concern; 32% of children under five suffered from stunting, 15% of the populations were undernourished and micronutrient deficiencies were widespread (World Food Programme). Dietary deficiencies in zinc, iodine and B-vitamins also widely affect women of reproductive age and children. 500,000 Cambodians are slipping into the poverty bracket between 2020 and 2021 (World Bank). With food insecurity comes higher risks of health issues.

Solution

The project will provide rural families with hands-on training, mentoring, seeds, fertilizer and resources, enabling them to establish food production using their existing land. This project will be implemented by our local Project Coordinators, who will conduct hands-on training and mentoring, providing the families with the opportunity to launch their own gardens. The families will receive the necessary resources for their gardens such as seed, fertilizer, and farming materials.

Long-Term Impact

50 families will complete the sustainable farming training course 100% of participants increase their knowledge about basic chemical-free farming 100% of participants have access to the required resource to establish their home gardens 100% families have improved nutrition through having their own vegetables eat 50% of participants will increase their income through the sales of the surplus production 90% of the participants will continue growing the vegetables after the project ends
