We work with our partners in East Africa to provide Sustainable Agriculture Training to farmers living in poor, remote communities. Community members are trained in farming techniques which increase agricultural efficiency using naturally available, environmentally friendly resources. On average, individuals who receive training are able to increase their income by 725%! This means parents can afford to feed their children, access healthcare, and send their children to school.

Eunice is 52 and lives with her partner and three children. She received Sustainable Agriculture training in 2018 which has had a positive impact on her life. Prior to the training Eunice was doing casual work on large, corporate farms but struggled to feed and provide for her family. She now has a regular income twice as high as before and can send her children to school and provide a positive home environment.

Training in Schools
As well as training individuals, our local partners use the Sustainable Agriculture techniques at Schools for Life projects. This enables students to learn about the techniques and seek employment in the agriculture sector after they finish their studies, as well as providing healthy, nutritious meals for the whole school.
