About Project

There were 5 focus areas of the project. Here are some of the activities associated with each focus area. First, to encourage farmers to adopt improved practices and technologies, the program established 8 leasehold farmers’ groups and assisted in the purchase of diesel and treadle pumps for irrigation. They conducted trainings on agriculture and assisted with establishing greenhouses and improving livestock sheds. To strengthen agricultural services and market linkages, Local Resource Persons were trained so they could disseminate information co communities, and vegetable collection centres were established. To strengthen leadership and governance capacity of groups and cooperatives, project staff conducted trainings and provided support to existing cooperatives, and helped in establishment of new ones. By providing vocational and microenterprise training to youth, as well as start-up resources, the program increased youth vocational skills and access to employment opportunities. Finally, to improve nutritional knowledge among mothers and increase growth monitoring of babies, the program staff conducted frequent meetings with government and community members to ensure the presence of health and growth monitoring services, as well as attendance of mothers and their children. Additionally, mothers were oriented on better nutrition and feeding practices and were encouraged to breastfeed their children.
