Tree planting in Schools
Since 2014 we have been dealing with planting trees in various schools. We started with the Sumaye school for planting 50 trees. We continued with tree planting campaigns in several schools where we managed to plant more than 123 trees in July, 2017. We have plans in the future to scale up our project of planting shade and fruit trees to more primary schools aiming at improving the school environment and nutritional status of the children.
Supporting widows and early mothers
The widows and early mothers have found mostly practice open-field farming of a subsistence and traditional form which is very seasonal and affected by the climatic conditions on household farms. Farming families have not adequately acquired knowledge and skills that can enable them to sustain themselves in an often harsh environment leaving them in poverty. In order to improve their livelihood a project promote organic agriculture through greenhouse technology was evolved. We started with six widows in 2010 and until now about 30 widows and early mothers have benefited from our initiative.
Fish farming promotion
We stared promoting integrated fish farming in schools and the community since 2009 by conducting skills training and demonstration. One school was selected as a model for integrated fish farming practice. This project involved 20 primary school orphans who were imparted skills on fish pond construction and vegetable gardening. One fish pond and 20 gardening plots were established.
