Foundations for Farming Spring 2019 Report

Foundations for Farming has over the past year been involved in the training of Tertiary Education students from several Agricultural Institutions in Zimbabwe. The objective of the trainings has been to introduce as well as complement any Conservation Agriculture (CA) teachings or programs, that may be in the educational curriculums in the institutions.

To date Foundations for Farming has trained close to 400 students and 60 staff members from the participating institutions. Most of the students trained have been women and girls with a percentage of 65% and men and boys contributing 35% of the students trained. This statistic shows how women contribute immensely in Zimbabwe’s Agricultural sector, which is considered the backbone of the country’s economy. Therefore, their role in the rebuilding of the Zimbabwean economy is undeniably significant.

More students are expected to be trained, as Foundations for Farming drives to eradicate hunger and poverty as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for Africa and the world. Hopefully, Climate Smart Agricultural practices such as CA will become part of policy to reduce environmental degradation as well as carbon emissions released into the atmosphere.
