Thematic Areas

 

Our Farmers’ Clubs model in which farmers are mobilised to engage in farming as a business, contributes to improved agricultural productivity and climate resilience in complimenting government efforts to combat poverty and reduce food insecurity and hunger.

                                

                         This is done through the implementation of Climate Resilience Initiatives that enables vulnerable rural households and communities to increase their resilience by addressing the causes of food and income insecurity in the context of increasing climate risks.

The approach brings smallholder farmers together in target areas to interact with government extension providers and the private sector to improve agricultural production, marketing and micro financing through access to training sessions, model farming, field visits, low cost technical solutions, technical assistance, and exchange of collectively gained experiences and promotion of community services.

The project implementation is led by a team of 21 Project Leaders, each working closely with a group of 500 farmers, who are organised in 10 Farmers’ Clubs of 40-60 farmers each.

The Young Farmers’ Clubs in Chibombo come in handy as a solution for the youth to create employment opportunities for themselves. The 300 young farmers promote conservation farming, financial literacy, and marketing of their farm produce as a group. They grow Moringa trees and add value through processing and packaging of the Moringa Powder which they sell under the slogan “Proud to be Rural”.
