Collaborative Funding through the Eurofins Foundation
To improve soil fertility and boost production and availability of nutrition-dense foods:
- 300 farms will see improvement in their soils
- 300 households will have increased food production
- 300 farming households will receive a variety of local seed varieties that are rich in nutrients and appropriate for improving soil quality
- 300 farming households will be trained in different skills to successfully produce, consume and store high quality, nutritious food
To promote the improvement of crop yields:
- 300 farmers will be trained in agroecological farming methods (e.g. intercropping, utilizing ground cover, composting, etc.)
- Demonstrations and field days will promote the effects of aforementioned methods on both yield and crop vitality
To improve nutrition and gender equality outcomes:
- SFHC project members will organize community-based nutrition education recipe days, which involve teaching complementary feeding recipes for children who are under 5
- SFHC project expects to reach to more than 300 community members on community-based gender sessions, to encourage engagement of men as well as women to participate in caregiving and nutrition practices, and to reduce womenâ€™s workloads
These activities align cleanly with Eurofin’s objective to support projects that seek to improve nutrition and health within communities, promote social equality, and protect an ever-changing environment.
We are so grateful for their continued support, and look forward to what this coming year will bring as we continue our work!
