Challenge

In the project communities, there are low agricultural outputs as a result, in part, to negative farming practices and the misuse of external farm inputs like fertilizers and agro-chemicals. Agricultural lands are seriously degraded, resulting in low food production and high levels of hunger and poverty in the communities

Solution

In partnership with Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MOFA), we shall provide training to farming households using farmer field school approaches. A group comprises of individuals farmers (20-25 in number) shall be empowered with knowledge and skills to be food sufficient on topics such as: Organic food farming techniques Staple food cultivation and promotion of resilient seeds use (rice, maize, moringa and local vegetables) - natural and traditional seeds.

Long-Term Impact

Households (HHs) increase their food production by at least 20% compared to previous year 70% of participants reporting increased soil fertility due to new practices 50% more participants cultivate during the dry season Hunger gap for 200 HHs decreased 80% 200 HHs under training to improve their food storage and practices Decreased food waste due to improper storage reduced by 50% Decrease food waste from mold due to improper preservation by 50%
