Early drought in East Africa is affecting the project start date

There is an early drought that is affecting the villagers in Nyabisindu. We are working with Dufatanye to figure out the best approach going forward.

If they plant vegetables and fruit trees now, it will result in a 70% loss. For bananas, they anticipate a 30% loss. There is also a concern that giving out chickens in the current context will result in heavy losses as well.

We are discussing potentially planting some banana trees now since they will have the least loss and planting fruit trees and vegetables in September when it rains.

I'll provide a further update when I have one.

Need help or have a question?
