Family Farming under way in Liberia and Sierra Leone
By Emma Jehle - Communications Intern
A workshop for kitchen gardeners - Sierra Leone
Thanks to support from other partners, the Family Farming project is under way in both Liberia and Sierra Leone.
This project, which focuses on food security for rural women, is being implemented in six districts of Sierra Leone covering 20 BRAC branches. Under the general agriculture program, 300 farmers have received training on rice production and vegetable gardening. Specific to the Family Farming project, we can report that basic training in kitchen gardening has been given to 300 rural women and we have begun establishing Village Nutrition Committees in the six districts in which BRAC operates.
Activities within the Family Farming project in Liberia area also going well. The BRAC Liberia team has already recruited and trained 175 rural women in kitchen gardening and 25 Village Nutrition Committees have been established within the six counties that BRAC runs operations.
Stay tuned for further updates and encourage your friends and family to contribute to this project that is literally changing the landscape for rural women!
