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.
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.
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.
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.
