Agriculture & Enviroment

Sustainability and ecological practices are central to our work. Rural communities such as Okana depend on agriculture for most of their livelihoods. They also depend on their environment for wood fuel used in the homes. Agriculture and environment go hand in hand. We work with rural community groups including youths and school children to enhance agricultural production and conservation of the environment for future generations. Our interventions include:

  • SRI Tree nursery
  • Bamboo project
  • Kitchen garden project
  • School gardens
  • Skills and knowledge sharing
  • Value chains and entrepreneurship trainings
