October 13, 2023 LUNGALUNGA COMMUNITY SEED DISTRIBUTION
With the current hit on the Kenya’s economy, many families are facing challenges of food insecurity, Lungalunga sub-county in Kwale being one of the most affected locations. Before the worsening on the economy, already food insecurity was a major problem within this sub-county to many households living in poverty, unpredictable climate change (frequent droughts and floods) which have had a significant impact on agriculture and food production, limited access to agricultural inputs like quality seeds, fertilizers, and limited knowledge and skills on modern agricultural practices, leading to low productivity, and poor yields. Since these families are in dire need and are requesting for external help, on the 13th of October 2023 and in collaboration with the National and the County government, we successfully officiated the LungaLunga Community seed distribution intervention aiming to support over 700 vulnerable households through green gram and cowpeas seed provision for farming with modern intensive trainings during the short rains of October to December.This will ensure sustainable access to food supply.
“Once planted and harvested, these products can even be preserved for future consumption and replanting.” – Deputy director.
“With this farming we have received intensive trainings in all phases where it is possible to get more harvest on a small piece of land.” – project participant
“We look forward to conduct more trainings and monitoring exercise within the communities for the quality of this project.” – Agricultural officer
The Deputy County Commissioner urged other potential donors and well wishers to join this initiative towards reaching out to more needy families during this difficult times.
KidsCare believes that by working together we can achieve a higher result. Therefore, KidsCare Kenya wants to cooperate with all organizations who share the vision and mission of KidsCare, to give children their basic right.
“We know that every life is precious, every life is priceless, and every life has something to offer. This is our unique perspective, our initiative, and we invite all to join us create a better and lasting future, for the children of tomorrow.” – KidsCare Kenya
