About

The project will support 82 impoverished families (492 individuals) in Nyabisindu Village.

Each family will be provided with expert training in agricultural practice, animal husbandry, finance and saving, which will be organised and carried out by our partners Dufatanye Organization.

Once the training is complete, the organisation will provide each family with ten banana trees, two fruit trees, two laying hens, vegetable seeds, and fertiliser - which will provide a sustainable method for them to combat malnutrition and diseases associated with hunger.

Challenge

Nyabisindu village is located in the Nyanza district and is 6 kilometres from Nyanza town. Within the Nyanza district, the poverty rate is reported as 17.6%, but reality shows that poverty is much in higher villages like Nyabisindu. Along with the high poverty rate, there is much hunger, malnutrition and illiteracy affecting 98% of the village households. The families living in the villages are unable to provide for their daily basic needs. Many make less than $0-$15 a month to live on.

Solution

We, alongside Dufatanye Organization, will provide 82 households in Nyabisindu village with the training and tools to produce and sustain a balanced diet, as well as financial training to ensure they are well equipped to create an income with any surplus produce.

Impact

This project will sustainably and positively transform the lives of 82 families and 492 individuals by enabling a constant food supply.

Families will learn how to save and can produce an income for the first time by selling the surplus produce from their fruit trees, banana trees and laying hens.

Checking in on the residents of Nyabisindu Village

On Thursday 21st January, Godfrey (project lead) messaged with updates after making his way to Nyabisindu village to see how the beneficiaries of this project are progressing.

The good news is the women are seeing some real progress in growing their fruit trees, especially the banana trees. The not-so-good news is that some of the laying hens were lost to eagles. Nonetheless, the beneficiaries are very grateful for our support in empowering them to grow and sell their own food.

Training and distribution completed
