(3) Celebrating high yield cassava
These women in Zeze, Kigoma are admiring the high yield cassava they have planted. The previous varieties used were very susceptible to drought, needed a long growing season and pests reduced their yields by up to 90%. Our local partner MVG has been training local farmers in better agriculture – read more here.
(4) Sunflowers in Kigoma
As part of the farmer training run by MVG, farmers are encouraged to diversify to additional crops. Here a young farmer is admiring his sunflower crop. Read more here.
(5) Collecting maize husks for biochar, Zeze, Kasulu
Biochar has amazing qualities in improving soil health and capturing carbon and can be made from agricultural waste. These farmers are collecting maize husks to produce it in a project run by our local rep in Kigoma, Benedicto Hosea, read more about this project here.
(6) Improved water source in Kagera
Previously this spring was often contaminated by animal waste, so we funded this construction organized by our local rep Alpha to protect and fence it off, greatly benefitting local school girls. Read more about our water projects here.
